Having a family doesn’t have to mean putting an end to your adventures and with autumn well and truly here, there has never been a better time to take your family into the great outdoors.
Whether searching for conkers or kicking up leaves at the park, kids like nothing better than exploring new places and with signs of autumn everywhere, now is the perfect time to enjoy some outdoor action!
Look for events near you…
Half term is here so keep an eye out for local events. Consider checking out what’s happening at your local park, museum or other nearby attractions as there is sure to be a whole range of fun activities taking place that the whole family can enjoy. For extra ideas, organisations like the Woodland Trust has lots of fun autumn activity packs that you can download and try for yourselves.
Be prepared for autumn weather…
As well as gorgeous landscapes, autumn brings with it the threat of unpredictable weather and can present anything from warm sunshine to driving wind and rain. Don’t let this put you off though, ensure you are prepared for every eventuality by encouraging the kids to wear multiple layers. A good waterproof jacket is crucial to ensure the rain doesn’t dampen your family’s spirits! With so many things to carry, a great tip is to give your child their very own daysack in which they can transport any favourite toys or an extra layer. As well as reducing your own load, this is fantastic for giving your young explorers that all important sense of independence in their autumn adventures.
Don’t forget food…
All the fresh air and exploring is guaranteed to work up an appetite so don’t forget to make sure you have a selection of healthy snacks and drinks with you. For added excitement on your family adventures, consider giving the kids their very own lunch pack with a selection of tasty treats to choose from.
