With Summer on the horizon, there are a varied range of activities to consider with the kids. Making the most of the good weather is important, and whether your little ones are keen to soak up some rays, interested in sweet treats or intent on getting themselves mucky with some gardening, there are an endless number of ideas to consider. At your local day nursery, holiday club or after school club, the staff are constantly planning new fun games, events and themed days, with the passionate team at Little Acorns Day Nursery taking pride in the collaborative, educational and enjoyable environment. Catering for babies, toddlers and preschool aged children, there’s fun for everyone at your convenient Eastleigh-based nursery. With a large playground, huge selection of toys, and experienced childcare practitioners, there are bound to be good times come rain or shine.
Gardening is an activity which can be enjoyed by anyone, regardless of age, and introducing a child to the great outdoors can set in motion a lifelong love of horticulture. Children are guaranteed to enjoy the experience of maintaining their own flowers, and tracking progress as their plants grow. Get creative with garden design and challenge the kids to make their own plant pots, or organise a competition to see who can grow the biggest vegetables. Gardening can be fun!
Ideal when the sun makes a rare appearance, water fights are an easy way for the kids to cool off, and can be enjoyed without requiring lots of equipment and hassle. All you need is water guns, water balloons and maybe even the garden hose. Suitable for even the smallest of gardens, a water fight will provide competitive fun for tiny groups and families alike.
Making Ice Lollies
The perfect solution when conditions are humid and a sweet treat is required, ice lollies are simple to make, require minimal resources, and can even be healthy if you use the right ingredient(s). Simply find an appropriate mould, fill the shape with a liquid of your preference and put in the freezer until your delicious treat is solid. Popular flavours of choice include refreshing apple juice, orange and mixed berries.
Hiding assorted objects around a home or garden will give children a taste for exploration, looking in all manner of obscure locations for the items of choice. Diversify things by hiding chocolate treats or set up a reward for whoever manages to collect the most items. Little Acorns Day Nursery have a spacious indoor and outdoor playground area, with enough space for a treasure hunt of epic proportions.
When choosing a nursery, after school activity space or holiday club for your children, you will want to make sure that the staff are friendly, the space is appropriate and the setting is local.
