So half term has been a bit of a wash out. Three days of rain has meant planning fun activities for the kids is really hard and they are definitely getting bored. It’s so much easier when the weather is nice. The girls seem so much happier pottering around the garden and sleep so much better for all the fresh air and exercise.

I know once Summer is finally here it will take us all by surprise so I’m trying to plan a few activities for the warmer weather now while I get chance.

Catching crickets

 

It was actually much harder to think of all the things I wanted to do. I’m sure there are others I will think of as I go along. I’ve already thought of climbing a tree.

 

So  what are your essential things to do with the kids?
