The Little Welly  The UK's biggest children’s obstacle course. 2018 events in Kent, Surrey, Oxfordshire & Hertfordshire. Full dates and venues on our website.

Us too... Free running and walking in nature are great ways for kids, (and us adults) to practice movement on new terrains, paying attention to our surroundings and how to make a big splash in puddles!

Let's cook with some little chefs!
Cooking is a fun, engaging activity perfect for all weather. You can cook inside during bad weather and bring the preparations out to the garden when it's warm.
It's great to see the kids getting stuck in; with new flavours, textures and techniques that you can guide them through.
Learning an appreciation for food and where it comes from helps kids lead happy and healthy lives - it also means you have a helping hand in the kitchen!

What recipe would you like to try with your kids?

Trainer Stu has been such a support to all those who take part in The Little Welly events over the years... And right now he needs our support! He's taken on the (massive) challenge of running from London to Aberdeen in #therunofgratitude and is doing incredibly well so far. To support him go to http://srg.upandrunning.co.uk/the-run-of-gratitude/ and follow his progress @StuartAmoryPT

These two words can bring dread to parents - "I'M BORED"... They're also heard more and more during school holidays by parents all around the country. But when your child runs in yelling or moaning that they're bored, should we be rushing to entertain them with a device or screen to passively engage with? It's the quick fix that we all grab in a panic, and then later regret.
Alternatively, what's the worst to come of a little boredom? Being bored can be the beginning of thinking up a new adventure, story, game, or picking up a new hobby or sport. By not always giving solutions to boredom, we allow our kids to find their own entertainment and to fill in the gaps for themselves.

It takes a lot of skill to master the squeezy ketchup!
One of the favourite parts of holidaying abroad in warmer countries, is always being able to eat outside with the family. The summertime brings us this luxury and as Brits, we truly embrace every part of it! Eating outside can help us focus on the things that matter - to be mindful to eat properly and slowly, and to engage with our family members in conversation.
Bring the vacation home, and create memories to last.

Who's swapping muddy puddles for sandy puddles at the beach this weekend? Another one of natures materials that's perfectly suited to play; sandcastles, digging holes, finding shells... We love the beach.
There's no reason to be using technology when your at the seaside - the sea, sky and sand are entertainment enough.

Good advice for kids, and for all you parents - (or should we say, bigger kids!) Keep cool by drinking plenty of water, keeping in the shade where possible, wearing a sun hat and by enjoying fun ways to cool off!
This may involve a water fight (or two), a water sprinkler, or perhaps making your own ice-lollies. How do you keep your kids cool in this extremely hot weather?
