Best outdoor activities for your little ones this summer ☀️

Summer is finally here and it’s time to enjoy the sunshine, warmth and outdoor spaces the brilliant UK has to offer. 

  • Head outdoors first thing in the morning or late in the afternoon evening
  • Set up a play area in the shade for kids
  • Put umbrellas up over water tables and sand pits to provide shade throughout the day
  • Keep hand misters/fans available to cool down
  • Pack some ice lollies in a cool box to stay cool and hydrated
  • Don’t forget a sun hat!
  • Set up a drinks station where even the little kids can help themselves to water
