(Goblin is 27 months)
While we were at my parents last weekend Granny and I took Goblin for a walk in the woods behind their house. These are the woods I grew up with so for me these are "proper" woods.
It is also a great place for observation. There are so many things in the woods that Goblin hadn't seen before, or didn't know the names of. We found a fallen tree. Goblin learnt the word "bark". I got him to feel the bark and see that it was rough. We found some Gorse. For anyone who doesn't know about Gorse, it is a prickly plant that grows all over the UK. It's yellow flower appear all year round and smell of coconut. Goblin recognised the flowers were yellow and I picked one so he could smell the coconut smell.
We found mud. I didn't need to point anything out, Goblin knows all about mud. But that didn't stop him investigating it a bit further.
