Outdoor April Adventures

At the beginning of April we joined the 'Get Outdoors Month' at Childhood 101 & 'Can You Come Outside To Play' taking up the challenge to spend at least two hours every day outside. Minnie loves being outside, whatever the weather, so taking part has been great, & it's helped reinforce just how important this outdoor time is.

April, in the UK, has been one of the hottest on record, so we've had endless opportunities to have fun in the sun. Here are our Top 30 Outdoor April Adventures! (We thought 30 was a neat number, there being 30 days in the month!)  ;)
