Next Friday is the 1st June and it sees the start of #30dayswild with The wildlife trust. The idea is to do something wild every day in June (so 30 days). We’ve signed up and received our pack, I can’t wait to do something wild with the girls every day. I’ll be sharing our adventures and also providing inspiration for you, across all my social media channels, weekly email newsletters and here on the blog. I’ve even got a few giveaways lined up for you too.
To get you started, if you join my email list to receive my weekly newsletters, you can download your welcome gift of an A4 printable list of 40 activities to do outside with kids (click on this link for more information or sign up at the end of this post). My weekly newsletters go out every Monday morning and they are full of inspiration for activities to do with your children, both from The Ladybirds’ Adventures and other blogs and websites. Of course, you can unsubscribe at any point.
Back to #30dayswild. My kids love being outside and since the weather is getting better we are spending plenty of time in our garden as well as days out and other adventures. I can’t commit to posting every single day in June, even on social media but I’ll be doing my best. I work 3 days a week so I’m only with the girls before 9 am and after 6 pm so we might not fit anything exciting in on those days. I know though that they will still be spending time outdoors at school or nursery/with grandparents. I’m also going to Blogtacular so won’t be with the girls those two days either but again I’m sure my husband will have them outdoors. Since it’s his first overnight alone with both girls I won’t add the pressure of doing something wild and photographing it for me.
Next week is also Children’s gardening week. As you know I have started gardening with my children. Mainly my 5 year old. We have plenty more post about this to come. I’m working with Garden site who have sent me raised bed for my garden (we chose this one but they have a wide range to suit your size and budget). Hopefully, we’ll have it built and full of soil by the end of next week and then we can start planting. We’ve already got some seeds ready for direct sowing and a few plants that we have grown from seed which are ready for planting out.
I can’t wait to spend time in June gardening, exploring locally and further away as well as teaching my girls more about nature. What are your favourite wild activities for little ones? I’d love to hear them as well as if you are taking part in #30dayswild so please leave me a comment below.
Don’t forget to sign up to my weekly newsletters to get your list of 40 things to do with kids.
