In our rainy-day expedition case you’ll find:
- A field trip notebook and pen for recording what we see
- A torch (you can teach morse code to older kids). We had battery-powered fairy lights too for our den
- Toy walkie-talkies so we can communicate when out adventuring; real ones would be even cooler
- A large white sheet to use as a tent for our den, with pegs to hold it in place.
- Books to read in our tent, when eating our snacks
- Juice and crackers. We ate these before we even started, so one of our first expeditions was back to the fridge
- A simple point-and-shoot camera for Harry to take endless blurry photos of our trip
- Hat and goggles, in the manner of all true explorers
- A sword, because you never know when you’ll meet a pirate or a baddie
- Handcuffs; see above.
- A rubber snake, for instant atmosphere; throwing this around (Harry) and screaming in faux-terror (me) took up quite a lot of the day and caused endless delight
- Marvin, Harry’s right-hand mouse and inseparable companion, and finally..
- A strong rope; we used a waxed washing line rope, mostly as a lasso for wild animals, but also to tie around our waists when climbing the stairs / dangerous mountain.

so absolutely in love for this creative super-mommy... a true inspiration for me as a future-mom!
