Jack’s curiosity knows no limits and he is at the age when he is interested in everything. He is on the go all the time and although he keeps me on my toes, I love to watch him learning and having fun whilst he runs wild.
We was recently introduced to the #DirtIsGood campaign by Persil UK and have been using their Wild Explorers app to give us some new outdoor activities to try.
We love being outdoors as a family and thankfully, we are surrounded by plenty of greenery at home, so this app is great for us.
Finding the perfect activity for your children (and family) is quick and simple. There are over 100 activities on offer by selecting from just a few options (as above).
We decided to start with two activities that we could all enjoy; Tree Hugs and Create Wild Art.
So, off we headed to our local common and braved the crisp air for a little family adventure. We enjoyed a lovely long walk whilst introducing Jack to all the different wildlife on offer.
Jack enjoyed exploring and hunting for leaves, twigs, feathers and conkers. Jack was more than happy to explore the different trees and shrubs as we wandered through the woodland.
We talked about the different colours, got hands-on by feeling the different textures and tried to find any creepy crawlies. Who knew that getting dirty in the great outdoors could be so much fun?
The following day, Jack accompanied his Nanny outside our home and went on a hunt for fallen autumn leaves in preparation for some afternoon fun.
I created a tree using some cardboard which Jack coloured with some crayons. We talked about the different colours again before Jack took to gluing the leaves to his tree and creating his masterpiece.
It was a really lovely afternoon and Jack enjoyed some quality time getting messy and crafty with Nanny. I think he’s a natural 😉
The app has some fantastic ideas for all the family to enjoy and certainly gets the thumbs up from us.
The app is available to download for free in both the Apple and Google Play stores.
