Make the most of outdoor family adventures during lockdown

Make the most of outdoor family adventures during lockdown

Although we are now technically out of lockdown, the tier system is in full swing and there is still a lot of chatter about another lockdown at the beginning of 2021. With that in mind, I thought I would pull together some simple ideas to encourage everyone to get outdoors and make the most of family adventures.

Trying something new: skateboarding with the family

Trying something new: skateboarding with the family

So far this year, many families have been taking up new hobbies and new activities to keep busy during lockdown. From baking and painting, to cycling and home cinema nights, there have been plenty of fun things to keep the whole family entertained.

Make the most of your family trip to amazing Sheffield

You’ve heard of “Staycation”, well new for Summer 2020, I bring you the “Famcation“. The act of stay-cationing with family, somewhere to explore and have adventures.

Family included the dogs here too, which was amazing. Here’s what we thought of the hotel and some fab family travel tips for your visit.

I have been reflecting on life, during lockdown, over the past few months. It has been over 100 days since lockdown started and all of our lives changed from what we knew. Lockdown has taken away our busyness, our routine and our general pattern throughout the week. It was scary at the beginning but now I am glad. There is quite a lot to take away from this as a family after lockdown. VIEW the POST

The launch of Towering Treetop Tangles at BeWILDerwood

We absolutely adore BeWILDerwood, it's one of those places that both children and adults can enjoy. We last went to this woodland of fun a couple of years ago and it was fantastic, the children were slightly shorter for some activities but this certainly wasn't the case this year. VIEW the POST
