2) Grow your own salad garden - All you need is a large pot, a small bag of compost and some mixed lettuce seeds. We have four different types of lettuce growing in different pots. Lettuce is so easy to grow and once the little seedlings start popping through the soil, simply thin out. They will grow quite quickly and the kids often eat it if they have grown it themselves.
10) Go for a really really long walk. - It doesn't matter where you live there are always places you can go walking and it really knocks the kids out. You don't have to live out in the countryside to enjoy a good walk, even if it means jumping on a bus or train. I buy a family and friends railcard every year and take full advantage of its savings. Before I buy I always look on Google for family railcard voucher codes. This years card cost me £19.50 instead of the usual £26. At the moment their website here is offering 10% off but google first for a voucher...you may just find a bigger discount code.
Any other ideas then let us know...Would love to hear from you?
