The ordinary days out #CountryKids

We love to get outside, let the kids get some fresh air and run about, but we don’t always go anywhere ‘exciting’ as such.

Days out are expensive, time-consuming, and quite frankly I think it does the children good to learn that we are not made of money, and can’t afford to take them to attractions and farm parks every weekend.

The last couple of weeks have been lovely – plenty of outdoor play, fresh air and family fun, without the price tag of ‘days out’.

Park - Country Kids

I have taken Max to the park a lot when the older 2 have been at school, and it’s been lovely to spend some time, just me and him. He loves the swings and the roundabout, and we have been making the most of the late September/early October sunshine and having a few picnics too!

Woods - Country Kids

We also spend a lot of time at the National Trust woodland just up the road from us. It’s a great place to while away a few hours at the weekend, no matter what the weather. There are dens to build, sticks to jump on, conkers to collect and puddles to jump in. What’s not to like? All 3 of the children love it, and usually complain when it’s time to head home.

How do you do free outdoor fun?

    We are very fortunate to be very close to the new forest and the beach with free parking in the forest if we don’t fancy the 20 min walk in. The beach is a bit future but for £39 we have all year round parking so not completely free but well worth it!

    We have ‘ordinary days out’ at the park, walking along the canal which runs alongside our home, or visiting the local old church and grounds. Before we moved we used to spend loads of time at the duck pond and paddling in the brook. We don’t have money to spend on expensive day trips all the time, but we always have just as much fun.
