Reblogged: Every child needs to find their wild side #30DaysWild — Warwickshire Wildlife Trust

Have you been going wild this June?

We’ve been making an effort each day to share a wild view, video, idea or activity on our twitter feed. It’s all part of the Wildlife Trusts ’30 Days Wild’ Campaign.

I feel very lucky that as a child I was encouraged to play outside by my parents, no matter what the weather. I’ve had those times where I got so engrossed in trying to catch a stickleback fish, I got my brand new shoes so wet and muddy they were unsalvageable.

Walking through the park after running one of Warwickshire Wildlife Trust’s children’s activities, a little girl of about 8 or 9 came down the path on her scooter making every effort to ride through the puddles, which were so large after recent rainfall that they consumed half of the pathway! Muddy water splashed all over her cream tights and I paused in anticipation of an angry parent shouting.
