We’ve had some really nice, and dare I say it, ‘warm’, sunshine recently 🙂
But as you know, if you are taking your kids out on the hills, the weather this time of year can turn bitter in an instant.
Fortunately, there’s even more ‘proper’ outdoor gear for kids available now with Berghaus introducing a range of outdoor clothes for the smaller members of the family. We tested out one of the new coats and were very impressed.
If you are after more ideas to keep the kids active these Easter Holidays, we’ve been impressed with the book ‘Commando Dad: Mission Adventure’. It’s written by a former Commando who is a registered childminder, and there are both outdoor and rainy day things to do.Click here to reply to this newsletter
