Nature Explorer Week 4 - Forest Bathing from Home
Thursday Nature Explorer Week 2 -
Wildlife Spotter Challenge
This is a challenge from our friends at Forestry England which can be adapted to use within both rural and urban settings.
The challenge over the next week is to see how many of the nine categories you can spot and tick off your sheet. You don't need to go to the forest for this, simply explore how much nature is all around you.
Also attached is a game of Tree Trumps from Forestry England. This follows on well from our Tree Exploring Challenge from last week
Woodland Trust Nature Activities
The Woodland Trust has a great article on its website with 10 nature activities for kids who are self-isolating at home.
This Girl Can
Inspiring girls and women to get active
This Girl Can believes that there's no right way to get active – if it gets your heart rate up, it counts. And we want more girls and women to find what's right for them.
The campaign celebrates active women who are doing their thing no matter how they look, how well they do it or how sweaty they get. We want to challenge the conventional idea of what exercise looks like and reach out to women of all backgrounds and ethnicities who feel left behind by traditional exercise.
In doing so, we're aiming to inspire more women and girls to wiggle, jiggle, move and prove that judgement, time, money and energy are barriers that can be overcome.
Throughout March Leicestershire & Rutland Sport are running the 'Move This March with #ThisGirlCan' programme. Check out the activities at the website below:

Nature Explorer Week 5 - Virtual Nature Walks
Our Thursday Nature Explorer Challenges for this week is Virtual Nature Walks.
This is from a Nature Resource page developed by the University of Derby. There's some really useful resources on the page and if you scroll to number 4 you'll find two virtual nature walks.
These are a great way to relax and enjoy nature at home, I must admit I prefer the Autumn one due to the amazing colours but have a look at both.
