Walk And Talk
Walks with the family are a great way to catch up with each other and re-connect after a busy summer. Ask a local charity if they have any ‘great outdoors’ events coming up - like sponsored walks and hikes that the whole family can get involved with - or set up your own mini-event with neighbours or community groups if there’s nothing already planned in your area, and have some fun as you fundraise for a good cause. The National Trust has hundreds of walks at its locations around the UK with trails, parkland paths, coastal climbs and historic grounds for everyone to enjoy.
We’re Going On A Bug Hunt
Get the kids looking for creepy crawlies with a Bug Hunt sheet downloaded from The Woodland Trust and make an afternoon of it with a picnic on a sunny autumn day, or just a quick foray into the garden on the damp ones.
Make Your Own Fun
Literally, make your own fun with a ‘kitchen’ day. Bring on the breakfast with a pancake-making session, enjoy a light bite at lunchtime thanks to our sandwich ideas, whip up some easy bakes for afternoon tea at home, and top it all off with a DIY pizza supper.
