As the October half term approaches, many parents are starting to make plans to help keep little ones entertained. Getting outdoors is a great way for families to spend time together and is good for both physical and mental wellbeing.
Wrap up warm in clothing like these fisherman sweaters for women https://www.shamrockgift.com and give some of these outdoor activities a try over the half term…
Collect Conkers – One of the favourite autumn pastimes for kids is collecting conkers. Have a look for some and see how many you can find to get ready for those conker fights in the playground! Another reason why you might want to find some conkers is to place them around your window sills as a deterrent to spiders!
Make an Autumn Wreath – With all the beautiful, coloured leaves falling from the trees now and pine cones aplenty, now is a good time to go foraging for things that you can use to make an autumn wreath for your front door. This is a great activity to enjoy with children.
Go Pumpkin Picking – As Halloween approaches there are lots of places around the UK that you can go to and pick your own pumpkin to carve, ready to put outside your house for Halloween.
Find some Fungi – Another thing that is abundant in the autumn is the fungi – there are many different varieties to spot – however although some are edible, many are poisonous so picking and eating them is not a good idea.
