How to Have Fun Outdoors – 5 Great Ways

Spending fun time outside with children is a great way to encourage children to get involved with nature.

It can also help burn off all of their endless energy and often ensure a good nights sleep for all.

Here are 5 quick ways on How to Fun Outdoors:

1. Find a pond and explore the wildlife, encourage your children to keep a note on all they can see at different times of the year, Spring is a great time to start.

2. Go foraging in the woods for sticks and leaves and then help them build their own bird feeder. Children will seeing feed off the feeder they have built.

3. Give them their own little patch of earth or a tub and help them plant seeds, children love watching things grow. Colourful flowers are always a winner or growing their own vegetables.

4. Build a Den…… see our post on How to Build a Den.

5. Go for a walk – make it fun with a game of Pooh Sticks, nighttime walk?  Star Gazing can be great fun.

We hope you love some of these ideas and enjoy them as much as we do.
