Boo and Poo

Yep, that’s the title that I’m going with.

Now, I’m hoping that you’ll tell me that I’m not alone here, and this is perfectly normal, but Boo really finds poo funny. She’s 4 – standard behaviour, right?!

Take her jokes. She’s going through that really sweet stage of wanting to tell jokes and making them up herself. Some recent examples would be ‘Why did the monkey cross the road?’..’Because it wanted to poo!’ or the classic ‘Knock, knock’ ‘Who’s there?’ ‘Smellyp..’ you get the point!

And then a friend of mine mentioned a fabulous book, which was then backed by a little Twitter chat I had, The Story of the Little Mole who knew it was none of his business, so I ordered that for her. It’s arrived, and wow, has it gone down well here!

So, I decided to capitalise on this new found obsession, and use it in one of our nature hunts. Yes, that’s right, we went on a poo hunt. If you can’t beat them, join them! Do not fear, do not look away, I have not photographed any of our finds to share with you. You can see the hunt, but not the delights we discovered!

We printed off an identifier sheet and set off. It was a very windy day, so we wrapped up warm, and it was also Little Man’s first day out in his wellies..

He liked them! We hunted high and low, and do not worry, we didn’t get too close to any of the waste we found!

Poo aside, though, it was a great way of talking to Boo about the different animals that may live in the park, their tracks and where they might be hiding.

And we managed to fit in a little trip to the ducks on our way back to the car, too..

It was a different type of hunt than we’ve tried before, and this one definitely held her attention!

Have you been on a poo hunt?!
