School’s out for summer…and guess what, so is the sunshine!

At first I didn’t recognise it, couldn’t quite comprehend what I was seeing, but then it dawned on me…that fiery ball lighting up the sky, warming my skin and generally putting everyone in a much better mood, was indeed the sun!
And so it was that last weekend we dug out those dusty sandals and last year’s sun cream and finally enjoyed a wonderful family weekend in the sunshine.
Outdoor play (actually in shorts and sans rain mac!) was the order of the weekend as we revelled in the first real signs of summer and declared we’d make the most of every minute of it. We shunned the trappings of indoors in favour of our old friend – the garden (that poor, dejected, yet beautifully green, space that has never enjoyed so much rain – particularly in an apparent drought!)
It’s nice we can finally plan garden parties with guaranteed sunshine…for now anyway. And we fully intend to make the most of it!
This weekend we have scheduled much of the same and are planning a family party to celebrate the best of British. We’ve bought an old school games set so that we can have some fun, sports day-inspired races of our own; including the three legged race, sack race, egg and spoon race and the classic obstacle race involving bean bags on heads, twirling hula hoops around your hips whilst climbing over various obstacles etc…Should be lots of fun for the children and adults alike!
Keep the whole family occupied with our extensive Outdoor toys collection.
This height adjustable swing, from Kingfisher, is great as it will grow with your little ones, looks lovely in the garden and will definitely keep the children happy.
As us parents know, there’s nothing fun about a hot and bothered child! So make sure you have sun cream, hats and sunglasses at the ready for your little ones, to keep them safe from the sun and avoid heat-related tantrums.
Shop our stylish range of kids Swimwear & beachwear to keep your little ones cool in more ways than one.
Three cheers for (sunny) Great Britain and long may it last!
