Join the National Trust
From exploring rivers and the coast to wandering through woodland and meandering through meadows, there are plenty of local walks to choose from with a national trust membership. Many of the locations have great play areas the children will love, and their cafes are always a hit, we recommend a cream tea.

World Wildlife Day
World Wildlife Day is a United Nations International day to celebrate all the world’s wild animals and plants and the contribution that they make to our lives and the health of the planet. Why not visit your local wildlife park to learn about animals and the nature around us, there are lots of free learning resources online to print off and take with you.

Get Gardening
It’s the right time of year to spruce up the garden ready for the summer. Little ones loved getting involved with muddy activities, get them involved gardening, they will love digging and looking for bugs. Plant some bulbs and watch them flourish in the coming months. If you’re new to gardening, why not try growing a few of your own herbs or vegetables which is a great life skill and learning opportunity. Give your children the responsibility of overseeing watering and weeding the crops, over the next few months, after all, nothing tastes better than home grown produce.

Outdoor Artwork
Go on a hunt outdoors and forage for leaves, twigs, petals, pinecones, stones, and anything natural to make artwork with, Pinterest, has a lot of good examples of ideas to get you started.

Visit a Local Farm
Spring is a great time to visit your local farm with the nicer weather and a chance to witness many of the new babies being born. Get up and close with the adorable new arrivals with many farms now offering petting and feeding opportunities.
