Nature Watch

It’s so easy to let our children stay inside and watch TV or play computer games, but there are so many benefits to spending time outside (for children and adults!)  Why not take them outside in the fresh air, just to play and let off steam or on a “look and listen” nature walk and talk about what you can see and hear – fun, exercise and informative!  We all have days when we know the children just need to…
