Free British Family Day Out

09/03/2015 00:32

Days out don't have to be expensive or involve travelling far and wide. Sometimes we all forget that quality time with our loved one or children is what's important and the location or activity isn't actually that important. Espcecially where young children are concerned. Clayton is at an age where he is intrigued by everything and just being on the move and outdoors is enough to set his senses on a rollercoaster ride. One of our favourite activities as a family is completely free - walking. Walking gives us all some fresh air and exercise; it lulls the children to sleep in the pram if need be, it gives us chance to talk if need be and it becomes a great adventure if fun and games are on the agenda. It doesn't matter what time of year it is either. We love wrapping up and walking in a stiff wind, love devouring ice cream in the sun as we stroll and like we did on our latest walk... we love to splash in puddles!

You needn't spend a fortune on days out all the time. Dress appropriately and take your children to enjoy the simple things in life. Feed the ducks, splash in puddles, skim stones and see who can find the biggest stick. We're blessed in the UK to have countless places to stroll on our doorsteps. Being outdoors is a wonderful thing; for mind, body and the imagination of the next generation.

We went out for the day yesterday to Rufford Abbey and it was a brilliant day out for only the cost of the petrol to get there. Parking is free until April and then it's only £3 for the whole day. We took a picnic and ate in the car because it was cold but we'll be going back in the summer.
I love days like this that don't cost the earth :)

We are lucky that, even though we live in London, we have some great parks close by.

You really don't have to spend a fortune to keep these little people happy.
Hayden will have so much fun at the park then at a theme park

I totally agree with you. We have a nature reserve not too far from our house and I love taking my children for a good old walk.

We love to walk too (the blog name says it all!) It is calming and cheap. And good exercise too.
