Thanks to the awesome summer 2018 heatwave we’ve been jumping in every bit of water we can find. But is it safe to go wild swimming with toddlers?
Canoe camping simply involves going on a canoe trip, stashing a tent, hammock or bivvy bag in your boat, then sleeping outdoors by a river. I just tried it for the first time – and it’s awesome!
Garden camping is a great option if you want to sleep outdoors as a family but don’t feel confident enough to tackle a campsite. It’s cheap, safe, very local, (mostly) stress-free, and loads of fun!
Sonny woke me up early yesterday (no shock there) and the sun was shining, so instead of lounging in bed we jumped on my bike and went for a little Saturday morning nature hunt.

Leaping into muddy puddles might seem gross to us big cynical adults, but for young kids and toddlers puddle jumping is just another awesome outdoor adventure. Here’s how to nail it!
If you want a fun family day out with awesome scenery, loads of wildlife and too many kids’ activities to pack into one visit, go cycling round Grafham Water in Cambridgeshire!
What do you get when you mix an inflatable canoe, a lazy river, a hot summer day, and a daredevil toddler? The perfect family microadventure!
I should make it clear from the start that the Coleman CXS+ 250 LED head torch isn’t a kids’ toy – it’s a proper piece of outdoor kit – but the good news is Sonny loves it just as much as I do.
