With the summer holidays only weeks away, parents are probably wondering how they’re going to entertain their children all summer long. There are so many fun and exciting activities that the whole family can get involved in this summer which you may want to check out.

One great summer activity is going on a nature walk or woodland trail. Many national parks have created their own trails which you can easily follow which gives you and the kids the chance to get out and enjoy some fresh air.

These trails can be great fun as they often have interesting and exciting checkpoints along the way to give children the chance to explore various different aspects of nature.

Taking a picnic and making a day trip out of this is a lovely way to spend some quality time together as a family and give children the chance to engage positively with nature.

If the weather isn’t great, as it often isn’t in England, you may be looking for some indoor activities which are still fun and engaging for children. Soft play centres are a great place to let children burn off some energy even if the weather is poor.

These centres often have a range of activities, from ball pits to slides and even trampolines. They also have cafes and seating areas for parents to sit and enjoy a hot or cold drink while the children play. Fun for the whole family!

Another fun way to spend the summer is by taking trips to the seaside. The seaside is always fun and even if the weather isn’t very hot, there is still lots to do. 

Arcades, piers, fish and chips and ice cream await you and if it’s sunny, the children will love spending their day building sandcastles and splashing in the sea!
