This Christmas has been filled with rain, rain and more rain. Sending our thoughts to families whose homes have been flooded during this Festive Season.
On a more positive note, there has been plenty of chances to watch the squirrels who visit our garden more or less every day.
Squirrels are quick, agile and fascinating. Also squirrels. . .
- have sharp claws that helps them shift direction when they are climbing trees
- can run headfirst down trees
- have light and small bodies
And most importantly squirrels love to dig in the snow. They are experts at snow tunnel digging. . . And there is nothing more fascinating than snow around Christmas . . .
We found this rather long but fascinating video. . .
After watching this video, our heads were filled with exciting ideas.
What if we could build a city where people who live where there is lots of snow can walk or even ride their bike even if it is very cold and lots of snow?
A snow city with lots of tunnels!
What ideas do you get from watching squirrels in the snow or on the green lawn?
