Feed the birds, have fun and celebrate the season by decorating your favourite outdoor tree.
Winter in the UK can feel like it goes on forever. With cold, drizzly days and dark evenings it’s easy to want to stay indoors but it is important to get outside in nature when we can. Spending time in nature has been proven to improve our mood. Just a short walk in your nearest green space can lift the spirits and energy levels, especially on a sunny winter’s day.
Dressing a tree indoors at Christmas time is something most of us are familiar with, but how about choosing your favourite outdoor tree to dress? In these long dark days a tree dressed with treats for wildlife and homemade decorations can be a cheerful thing to look at and a great way to celebrate the importance of trees.
Choose your tree. Following Covid-19 guidelines and restrictions, choose your favourite tree or shrub in your outdoor space. Dressing a public tree is fine as long as you have permission from the owner; there might be a tree at school or in a community centre that you could help celebrate.
Time to get creative. Have a think about what you love about your tree, could you celebrate this in your decorations? Use drawing, words, poems, organic materials and colourful, environmentally friendly objects, but think about your materials carefully.
Celebrate your tree. As long as it is safe to do so, why not plan a wintry celebration with your family, with drinks and snacks to help you celebrate the best of the season.
