'Quick & Local, Easy & Fun'
Outdoor Activities for the kids
Mini adventures tend to be short, local, and easy to organise to fit in with a busy day. It may be a mini-beast quest fuelled with hot chocolate; watching the sunrise before work/school; cooking dinner outdoors; or going on an owl hunt...
When you get home your cheeks may be rosy and your clothes may be soaked, but you will have laughed so much your face hurts!
