With Winter behind us, the kids are itching to get out in the garden once more and Spring is the perfect time to encourage plenty of physical play.
With just a couple of weeks until the clocks spring forward and the evenings start to get longer and lighter, it is the perfect time to starting planning and prepping your garden for summer activities.
The back garden climbing frame is the perfect, fun place for kids to play, exercise and develop their motor skills.
A sandpit is not only great fun for your child but it also provides significant development opportunities. Digging, lifting, carrying, shovelling, raking and tunnelling all help develop your child’s gross motor skills – while drawing, moulding, pouring, sifting and patting help develop fine motor skills.
Outdoor play is crucial to a child’s development. It allows them to practice and master a range of physical skills while helping them to stay fit and healthy.
With the snow really starting to fall and forecasts of heavier spells on the horizon, it’s high time you got the family’s woolly hats from under the stairs and take to the back garden or park for a little snowy fun.
Even though it can be tempting to simply curl up in front of the fire and Netflix as the Mercury drops towards the minus notches on the thermometer, it is important that you and the family continue to enjoy fresh air every day.
It is possible to add an extra dimension to the fun which can be had on a back-garden trampoline with simple but exciting games. Here we list seven of our favourite games which can keep the whole family bouncing and having fun.
