Making a Cress Head

We really enjoyed making our cress head, especially as after the initial activity, as we got to nurture the cress and watch it grow. It was great fun cutting off the cress when it was long enough and eating it in egg sandwiches. What do I need to make a cress head? A plastic pot the size of a small yoghurt pot A ball of cotton wool Some cress seeds A pen Water How do I make a cress head? Draw a face onto your plastic pot. Put some cotton wool in your plastic pot, so it’s three quarters full. Wet the cotton wool with water, you want it to be wet all the way through, but don’t want excess water. Sprinkle seeds on the cotton wool (we used a whole small packet for one plastic pot). Place your Cress Head on a sunny window sill and water regu

Growing sunflowers to #plantsomesunshine

Are you growing sunflowers this spring and summer? We have planted some sunflower seeds and they are now growing on a window sill. This means they can be watered easily, whilst getting plenty of sunlight. We will move the flowers to the garden as soon as they are big enough to plant outside. Every year we plant sunflowers, alongside planting our vegetable patch as it always brings us such joy. We love the fact that the sunflowers look like giant sunshines, attract the bees and give the birds some seeds to eat in the autumn. We also love all the different varieties of sunflowers we grow but find the giant ones most fun to grow. This year during the global pandemic of Covid-19 we believe our sunflowers will really give us hope - something to watch grow and nurture throughout the war...

Walking at Lily Hill Park in Bracknell

Lily Hill Park in Bracknell is one of our favourite places to go for a family walk and adventure. The park is made up of 23 hectares of public open space which includes woodland areas, open green space, ponds, a boardwalk and sculptures plus plenty of wildlife and flowers. It’s also home to England’s longest picnic bench - carved from a single piece of wood. We park in the North Car Park which is free of charge and can be found off Lily Hill Road, Bracknell, RG12 2RX. Once parked we take either the path next to the noticeboard or the path down the steps and under The Green Man sculpture. The Green Man is a wonderful wooden carving and great for a photo opportunity. Both paths join together and then we take the path to the left sometime heading off the path up into the woods (depend

Walking at Wildmoor Heath Nature Reserve, Crowthorne

Whilst out running an errand in the February Half Term we planned to stop en-route to go walking at Wildmoor Heath Nature Reserve, Crowthorne, which is jointly owned by the Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust and Bracknell Forest.
