With weeks of sun-filled adventure ahead, stave off boredom with entertaining outings and energetic activities. Whether you’re home, or away, we’ve rounded up some fun-packed ideas for children of all ages.
Summer is truly the season to eat alfresco – just fetch a blanket and fill a basket with their favourite foods. With so many delicious fruits in season, there’s no better time to get children involved in the picnic-packing process. From preparing fresh strawberries and apples to making simple sandwiches, it’s a great way to encourage healthy eating.
Keep them active by compiling a list of games they can play outdoors. It’s the perfect way to teach little ones the importance of teamwork, as well as getting them to enjoy some fresh air. Whether it’s a classic egg and spoon race, a game of badminton, or finding the best climbing tree, hours of fun are guaranteed.
Bring stories to life with the help of our brilliant books and cuddly companions. Whether you follow the roaring lion, or lonely panda, these furry friends make happy bedfellows. Little ones can even write their own stories with the help of Zaza the Zebra and Gigi the Giraffe. Let the adventures begin!
As the temperature starts to rise, be prepared to cool down. Children will love making a splash at the local swimming pool – even more so if it has slides! Be sure to pack towelling ponchos, swimwear, sun cream and snacks for a full day in the sun.
