Signs of Spring

This free activity sheet invites children aged 5-9 to explore Eaton Park looking for tell-tale signs of spring such as buds on trees, fallen cones (who knew that ‘male’ cones fall in the spring!), and buzzing bees.

You’ll find signs of spring throughout the park – in the trees in the children’s play area, in the rose garden, in Bluebell Wood and in our newest wood – North Park Wood. So get walking, take a good look around you, make a note (or even a drawing on the other side of the activity sheet), and most of all enjoy!
