The weather has been so kind to us here in the UK and the forecast for August is looking positive so far. Despite the odd shower here and there we are being told to expect decent temperatures, which only means one thing, we can continue to enjoy the great outdoors! Continuing on from last week we have a few more ideas on some fun trips out and about with your children.
Go and Watch the Birds
Bird watching can be great fun, especially if you have some fun tools to take with you like a pair of binoculars, notebook and pen to record your sightings, a list of local birds you might be able to spot and a camera. Throw all your essential bird watching kit in a backpack (like the new Woolly and Tig backpack made with waterproof material!), put on your wellies and see how many you can spot.
Watching Wildlife in Your Garden
Set up camp in your own back garden and learn about the wildlife that lives on your doorstep. The RSPB have a great guide to the different types of creatures that are commonly found at this time of year. Perhaps if you notice the wildlife is lacking you could spend some time creating a wildlife friendly zone to see if you can encourage more creatures. You can tie this in with building a den outdoors too and make the most of the garden over the weekend.
A Day at the Beach
The UK has some wonderful beaches to explore and enjoy a fun day trip out together as a family. While you’re at the beach you can help your child tick off a few of the National Trust’s 50 Things to do Before You’re 11 ¾ list. While at the beach you can jump over the waves, swim in the sea, explore the rock pools for amazing sea life and if you stay into the evening you’ll be able to watch the sunset over the horizon and watch the night sky for a while too.How will you be spending the rest of your holidays?
