We want our children to play outside and reap all the scientifically proven benefits that spending time in a garden can bring. Studies have shown that patients in hospitals who have a view of nature outside their window tend to recover faster than those without. Although having a little explorer or two can pose a challenge as we want to ensure that they are always safe. It seems so long since I had a toddler roaming around, but I thought these toddler proof tips were useful.
Yesterday we took a stroll in the deep dark wood, with our wellies and coats, and our picnic food. A bucket for collecting great things on the way, to take home and make art with on another day. We had great fun in the leaves and exploring up trees, outdoor fun at its best and the children were pleased. I love our little welly walks, wrapped up nice and snug, with the camera in tow – its any excuse for a hug!
