If you’re lucky enough to have this half term off work and you fancy doing something a bit different with your kids, why not dig out your wellies and take them on an exciting forest family adventure?
The UK has an abundance of beautiful countryside that is perfect for a fun and relaxing half term break with your family.
Nature brings out the best in people. Nothing can take the stress of everyday life away quite like good old Mother Nature (well…. apart from that first glass of wine on a Friday evening); leaving you to relax and enjoy your time off with your family.
Make special memories
The outdoors is a magical place for children. They love to explore, learn new things and see the world from a different perspective.
Many parents wish their children played outside more. ‘Modern day children’ can be so saturated by technology and computer games that they don’t play outside as much as they would hope. Many children may not have even experienced basic activities that we took for granted as a child, like climbing a tree or making a daisy chain.
Kids can learn so much from natural play and its great fun teaching them things that they will treasure forever.
Something for everyone
The beauty of a woodland family adventure is that there’s plenty of things for everyone to do.
For the more adventurous you can have a go at cycling, hiking, kayaking, climbing and caving.
Younger children can join in activity groups, enjoy learning about the outdoors and run around chasing butterflies.
While parents and older generations can enjoy scenic strolls, get involved in the activities, or sneak off to the cabin to put their feet up on the veranda and take a dip in the hot tub.
Forest Holidays have some fantastic luxury woodland cabins still available this half term across nine locations in England and Scotland. Being an NHS employee, you can get 10% off your Forest Holiday with our fantastic deal.
This is your chance to build some real foundations for a love of the outdoors with your children this half term. You never know, you’ll probably end up having more fun than them!
