Four things I discovered from 30 Days Wild

I had great fun completing the Wildlife Trust’s ’30 Days Wild’ Challenge throughout June.  Here are four things I discovered during the month.


  1. I genuinely do feel happier and calmer when I have spent time outside.  For me it is definitely worth taking the time to reconnect with nature on a daily basis.
  2. All three children are happier, more co-operative with each other and more creative when playing outside.  Seeing how well they play, and learn, when outside makes me even more determined to become a Forest School teacher and encourage more children to experience the wonders of the natural world.
  3. I do spend a lot of time outside, but quite often this is because of the dog or when I am at work.  Finding time to spare to play outside with my own children has been tough.  This challenge has been invaluable in forcing me to reassess the quality of time I spend with my children and hopefully finding a way to redress this balance in the future.
  4. I am rubbish at remembering to take photographs of our activities (although improving!).
