Enjoying the Great Outdoors

The last few weeks has provided us with some beautiful spring weather. The sun has shone, the air has been fresh and warm, what more could you want. After such a wet, horrible winter, this recent weather has definitely been needed and relished.

Kids at play

We have all been outside every day. We have been planting, playing, exploring, walking and having lots of fun.

We were in the New Forest last week and spent a lot of time outdoors. We visited a wildlife park, saw lots of animals, climbed on the climbing frames, dug in the sandpit and had a great time (I will write about this soon).

We spent a day on the beach, paddling, digging, making sand castles, painting, laughing and giggling. We went for a nature walk in the forest and ran around with our windsock fishes we made.

This week at home BB painted garden furniture, which he loved, as it made him feel very grown up. We prepared the garden for the arrival of our plants today via Garden on a roll (yes, it really is….it’s just like planting by numbers!).

We have played ball, climbed on the climbing frame, scooted up and down, swung on the swing, run around, played with our water table and blown bubbles.

Outdoor play, fun, fresh air and exercise has got to be one of the most important things for children. When they are given the opportunity of the freedom of the outdoors, they can thrive, smile, laugh, learn and explore life.

I am so grateful for this recent spell of wonderful weather to allow us all to get outdoors.

  2. It is so lovely to be able to be outdoors without shivering or wearing a big coat. We have been enjoying the nice weather here, too!

  3. The New Forest is a Fantastic place to explore as an Adult or a child. Looks like some great times have been had out doors this week with you.
