Let’s walk in the woods...
The cool and pleasant temperatures often tempt us to go out and walk ! A little insight into the activities of what can be done during the next few weekends in the forest !
The season has began ! France is filled with places abundant in mushrooms ! No matter where you are, either in Ile-de-France, Périgord, les Landes or in Alsace, more than 80 species of mushrooms are hidden in these forests ! And you can discover them ! Dress warmly with good waterproof shoes, arm yourselves with a small knife during your harvest, place the mushrooms in a wicker basket or natural fibre bag so they do not sweat as they would if contained in plastic.
If in the slightest doubt, show your pickings to a pharmacist or an expert before consuming them.
A family outing which will entertain beginners as much as the experienced mushroom gatherers !
Learing to take photographs :
The autumn is a photographers’s delight. Nature offers a kaleidoscope of lively colour which can leave you in awe ! The ground is covered with hues that give such strength of character to the landscape which lies before us. The ideal opportunity to grasp all this in a photo during a beautiful autumn stroll ! By means of a smartphone, a camera or of a more professional device, enjoy photographing the various opportunities that Mother Nature has to offer. Foliage, trees, animals, everything is subject to the photo !
Create a naturel album
A stimulating activity for the children: the creation of their own nature album ! At the same time as being educational it can also make for a wonderful memory, organise an afternoon when your children can discover the the treasures of the forest ! In search of various types of leaves or flora at hand, the children will be amazed by the diversity ! Back home, dry the leaves and begin to compile an album. An activity over several days your children can develop their curiosity and possibly it may create vocations !
