All in all everyone seems happier in springtime, the sky is looking a lot less grey, flowers are starting to sprout and there is also much more to do. We think that the best way to enjoy this magical time of year is to spend as much time outside as possible so here are six fun activities that are great for all the family.
A Blustery Walk In The Woods
Woodlands in springtime are enchanting, there are often bluebells amongst the dead leaves giving you the feeling that summer is on its way. There is lots of fun to be had in the woods from tree climbing, flower picking, and camp building. However, the sun isn’t always shining during the spring- especially in England so it’s probably best to come prepared for the weather. Have a look at our gorgeous rainwear collection, you are bound to find something fit for the woods.
Host A Garden Party
Do you or someone close to you have a birthday during the spring? Hosting a party in your garden is a great way to celebrate a springtime birthday. Not only does it minimise mess in your house but it leaves room for children to play outside while you enjoy the warmer weather. Worried about decoration? Bunting is brilliant for outside and, if you are feeling really adventurous you could make your own using our specially designed fabric. We do also sell ready made bunting but making your own can be a fun activity to try with children.
Go For A Teddy Bear’s Picnic
Are you fed up of the kids running around inside all the time? Taking them for a Teddy Bear’s picnic is a brilliant way for children to play with their favourite toy and get out of the house at the same time. Have a look at our gorgeous collection of teddy bears you might find an extra guest that you want to invite…
Stroll Along The Seafront
If you are nearer the seaside than the woods then walking along the beach is the perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon especially if you have a newborn. The sound of the sea often calms down anxious children and the ocean air is great for clearing away any nasty bugs that are still lingering from the winter. Although, don’t forget to wrap up warm- it can get very windy. Our traditional pram blankets will keep your little one nice and cosy.
Make A Fairy Garden
Sometimes it can be too hectic to organise a big day out. So, playing in the garden can be just as fun especially if you want to do some gardening yourself. Children can often find their own garden a bit boring but, if there is a fun activity involved like building a home for the garden fairies, it can keep them occupied for hours.
Have A Sleepover
Kids burn a lot more energy when they are playing outside, so after all the fun daytime activities it can be nice to have a quiet evening in. Make sure you’ve got a classic Disney film, plenty of snacks and some cosy pyjamas, then you are good to go. We’ve got a wonderful range of nightwear for both adults and children… you never know, you might want to join in on the fun too!
