1. Get some games
Get down to Poundland and invest in a big bundle of super-soakers, water pistols and water balloons. Perfect for taking to the park, down the beach, or even over to Grandma’s when you’ve got to go to work, it’s a really fun way for your kids to let off some steam (and tire them out so you get the evening to yourself!).
2. Turn any day out into an adventure
Whether it’s a stroll around the park, the walk to the swimming baths, or even a day spent in the garden (none of us can go out every single day), give the kids a list of things to find – a blossom tree, a blue car, a shell. Whoever is the first to find everything on the list is allowed a treat of their choice. Trust us, they’ll love you for it.
3. Pack a picnic
The novelty of eating outside never gets old.
4. Invest in portable board games
Mini versions of total classics, they’ll never be bored again.
6. Plan for all weather
6. Planned a day at the beach but it’s started to pour it down? Don’t let that stop you! Always have a few pac-a-macs inside your bag and enjoy yourself anyway. After all, damp sand is much better for building sandcastles anyway. #silverlinings
