The school holidays are fast approaching, and if you’re anything like me you want to be out and about in the fresh air with the kids this summer.
Let’s face it, they have a habit of going stir crazy if they’re cooped up in the house for too long. Either that or they’d get square eyes from looking at their ds consoles too much.
No, we’d much rather be outdoors where it’s (hopefully!) nice and sunny.
One of our favourite activities in the summer is filling a picnic basket with sandwiches and juice cartons, picking up a football on our way out of the door and heading off to the local park.
Not only is it a free activity, food always seems to taste best when it’s eaten outside. Plus, they get to work at a big appetite with all the running about, and going up and down slides!
Tree climbing is also a great favourite. They’re always happiest when they’re climbing things here. Find yourself some nice sturdy roots and huge branches, and get climbing. A traditional children’s activity that never gets old.
One other thing that we’d love to do is go camping, and feel a night under canvas might be on the agenda these summer holidays.
What better way to drift off to sleep than looking out at the twinkling stars?
Whatever you decide to do in the great outdoors, it’s always wise to make sure you’re prepared for the elements. (I mean, the weather’s not exactly been predictable lately, has it?!)
E-outdoor has a great range of clothes and equipment for your chosen activities, from suitable kids clothing, to climbing gear, to tents and sleeping bags for your camping adventure.
Not forgetting cooking equipment such as stoves and cook boxes.
After all, every camping trip needs sausages and beans eaten out of a tin, followed by a sing song to make it authentic and add to the fun.
Now, I say roll on the summer holidays and lovely, sunny weather…
