  1. Love the loo roll men. I was just thinking actually what sort of thing we could use them and kitchen rolls for. I cam up with a pirate sword for the kitchen rolls. Will have to give the men a go. Have a good holiday. Our favorite summer activity is chalking on the hard standing in our back garden Its a great way to help my daughter learn to spell and in crease my little mans pen control!

  5. Alison says:

    My favorite summer time activity is going to the beach with my son and exploring all the rock pools. We have fun trying to catch fish, but we are not very successful. Later we use our diggers and dump trucks to dig holes and make roads.

  6. Danielle Baker says:

    Hiya ,
    This looks like a lovely prize with endless possibilities for crafty fun!!
    My favourite thing to do with my little girl in the summer is a day at our local country park.
    We pack up a lovely picnic and take lots of outdoor games , a football , some inflatable skittles and lots of bubbles (always a hit with pre-schoolers on a summers’s day!)

    I follow your blog and also like you on facebook :)
    Have a lovely holiday xxx

  7. So far this Summer our favourite thing to do has been to pick blackberries and plums from our country park (they get earlier every year) and then go to the play park. We now have some new goldfish so will also be heading off to the stream to find them some plants for their tank.

  8. I love anything with water! Running through the sprinkler always makes me feel like a kid again! Thanks! (And of course I am a follower!)

  33. Becci says:

    I have 3 boys who love to be outdoors. One of our favourite summer activities a treasure hunt. I hide some numbered stars around the garden and a prize at the end and draw them each a map to follow. It’s great when their friends come over too as you can put them all in the garden and leave them for half an hour looking for their bounty.

  34. Judy says:

    Our favorite summer activity is going to the water park :)

  35. Debbie Kennedy says:

    Great blog, thanks Red Ted!

  38. Alicia C. says:

    I love going for walk in the evening with my family. The heat is dissipating, the sun is going down, the kids are usually wound up when we start and ready for a bath and bed when we get home. We see all kinds of insects, animals, people, plants… we talk to each other, we don’t worry about where we’re going, we just relax and enjoy being in the moment. This isn’t something we can do when it’s cold out!

    I think my favourite thing about summer with the kids has been, esp. in the last few years, has been our garden. The kids have really taken an interest in it and we all go out together for a few min. everyday. They are impressed to see things grow that they have planted and cared for themselves.

  56. Nabiha says:

    My favorite summertime activity would be going to the parks..

  57. Emma Davis says:

    My kids favourite summer time activities usually involve the outdoors. They are proper ‘outdoor children’ and love nothing more than exploring the woods hunting for minibeats or trying to identify the trees. I recently completed Forest School pratitioner training so now we have even more fun by building dens and getting crafty using natural resources. They especially like making Tree Spirits. My Twitter ID is Emmad77

  58. We are always making props for role play. It may be making pinata for teddy bear’s birthdays or making theatres for puppet shows. The Pickle can be engrossed for hours in the making then the playing.

  59. Jennifer C. says:

    I do Arts & Crafts 3 days a week with the under-privileged kids in my neighbourhood…I’m going to say that my favourite has been either the tye die tees or the rock plaque families…heavensent1@yahoo dotcom
