Outdoor Fun With The Kids
With the sun’s rays slowly poking through the clouds, it’s only right to get out and about with the kids and embrace what nature has to offer! Allow the kids to find wonder in the great outdoors, whether it’s learning about worlds gone by or unlocking their imagination - the world really is their oyster.
Luckily, we’ve come up with some exciting ways to get the kids enjoying the fresh air, giving Mum’s and Dad’s a well-deserved rest! So, put down the controllers, get your trainers on and explore the world around you (or even just your back garden), keeping the kids engaged throughout the warmer months with fun-filled adventures which are available with a One4all Gift Card!

Enjoying the outdoors can come in various forms – exploring enchanted forests, visiting friendly farm animals, or even playing at the local park. However, British weather isn’t the most reliable - a fun day out feeding some llamas can quickly turn into a muddy mess. Therefore, a pair of fun waterproof shoes are essential – even if the sun is shining. The Peppa Pig wellies from John Lewis allow them to play without a care in the world and for parents to have a day off from doing a wash!

Bring the park to your lawn this spring, with so much to choose from; slides, swings and climbing frames, their imagination will run wild! A colourful addition to your garden, the Chad Valley Playhouse from Argos allows kids to feature in their own fairy tales – taking the form of their favourite dragon slayer or witch! Wendy houses also make for a great space for the kids to relax while you start up the BBQ.

Don’t just get them outdoors this spring, get them emersed in nature! A fantastic way to learn about the planet while also giving back is gardening. Grow juicy strawberries, spring salad favourites or start them off with a blooming flowerbed - the Apricot Summer Bedding Plant Pack from B&Q not only makes for a bold addition to the garden, but also teaches the kids how mother nature grows.

Learning to cycle is a perfect way for kids to gain their independence, allowing them to explore a world beyond their bedroom! Why not pedal down to the peaks on a sunny Sunday afternoon, take in the greenery or if they’re just beginning, teach them to ride right on your doorstep. The Batman Kids Bike from Halfords allows them to express their personality and impress their friends – you’ll struggle to get them off it at the school gates!

Why not treat the whole family to a weekend packed with wonder? Visit new and exciting parts of the UK where the kids aren’t the only ones who can learn about decades past, the adults can too! Museums are hubs bursting with knowledge, where kids can draw and discover in their own creative ways. Places like Bressingham Steam & Gardens are ideal for kids who love to explore, take a spin on the merry-go-round or submerse themselves in history with a relaxing railway journey – create a day that won’t be forgotten!
