7 Simple Tips To Help You To Achieve Your 1000 Hours Outside Challenge

This year we decided to take part in the 1000 Hours Outside challenge. The idea behind this being that we get our kids away from those screens and show them that the great outdoors can be amazing fun as well as good for their physical and mental wellbeing. Being a Mum to 2 very active boys I didn’t think I would find it too hard but come February, I realised I had overestimated how much time we spend outside in the winter months.

The Importance of Getting Kids Gardening

So I make the most out of the small space we have by researching garden ideas, looking into what others have done and I have discovered a passion for something I never thought I would – or maybe I am just getting old?!

Having re-positioned flower beds and re-laid the lawn, added pots, hanging baskets and bought new plants (yes, we learnt the hard way how expensive it is to only buy seasonal flowers after the first year). Continue reading “Garden Ideas”
