Spring into life this February half term

Feels like Christmas was only yesterday! We know it's hard keeping the little ones busy during the holidays so here are some ideas to keep them active and get them outdoor as spring begins to drift its way it.

Budding tree lover!  

The season is turning and the bare branches are giving way to beautiful new buds! You can take your little ones on an adventure to see what buds they can see appearing in the park. This great buds ID guide from Tree Guide UK is perfect for identifying what you find. Here are some of the buds we found when walking around Dobbs Weir.


Stroll to find the sculptures

There are amazing sculptures to find when exploring the park. From the nature inspired Glade at Fishers Green to the stunning carved wooden benches at Tottenham Marshes.

Bright eyed and bushy tailed birdwatching

Waiting for wildlife to appear out of the hedgerow can be tiring for little birders, but the Wildlife Discovery Centre has activities to keep them occupied! From listening to different birdsong, seeing a nest close up and looking at the view over the lake in the tower. There’s plenty to keep them busy while you wait for the birds to appear.

See the spring blooms up close

Field full of blooming daffodils in the sun

Snowdrops, daffodils, crocus to name but a few of the blooms you can see in their full glory at Myddelton House Gardens. This is a great place for the kids to explore seasonal sights and learn a bit of history with Ossie the Ostrich discovery pack.


Family walking at Gunpowder Park

Of course we still have our open space and walking routes that will get the kids away from the screen and enjoying the outdoors – all we have to do is hope for dry weather!
