Keep the kids occupied outside
As the days start to get warmer and the summer holidays sneak up on us, it’s time to start thinking about activities to keep the kids entertained.
With an abundance of online games and gaming consoles out there, we wanted to give you some fun ideas for outdoor activities that will reduce screen time and get kids out into the sunshine! There’s plenty of fun to be had with outdoor games for kids, whether you’re in the garden, the park or out on a day trip. And with options for all ages you can keep the whole family entertained for less than you might think!

Summer in the garden wouldn’t be complete without a paddling pool! And if the heat gets a bit much, there are loads of other ways to cool down with the kids too – like starting a water fight!
