Welcome to this week's newsletter, all about nature.
These snow days have been great, but wet and cold, right? As we recover from a week spent avoiding the perils of rarely seen, soft, white snow, just remember, it will all melt away soon and normal business will resume.
But while the kids are enjoying rolling about outside, tell them about these recommended events and walks made by parents on Kinfo, and make family plans to get outside more!

You won't find a better researched, more beautifully shot nature documentary than 91-year-old Sir David Attenborough's global hit. He spurred on successful public campaigns to clean up our oceans, and as for these sex-changing fish... What a cinematic feat! "A family must see!" says a mum of 3. Comfy, family screen time this weekend.
"Busy in the holidays, so get there early," tips one dad. (Or, make the most of today's snow day, central London was eerily quiet but functional yesterday). The Wildlife Photographer of the Year is an exhibition of 100 images that have captured the beauty and drama of the natural world. Ends in May.
Not a well known spot and long past its glory days, but still good for admiring wisteria-filled Edwardian landscaped gardening that "feels like a secret garden from a children's story," says a mum of 2. Of course, the lovely heath and wild swimming ponds are just across the road.
The best 'drop and go' ever, kids aged 6-15 can camp in nature in various UK locations for 3 or 5 days and learn all about fire-lighting, wilderness first aid, wild swimming, games, scavenger hunts... "My children loved everything about it," says another mum of 2.
We love a healing woodland adventure! All that den-making, hide-and-seek and leaf-kicking is essential for souls young and old. "The kids love it here. Blackberries, bluebells and birds over the changing seasons - lovely, long walks," says a dad of 2. A Kent must-do for anyone on their way to Whitstable.
Bracing, British coastal walk, anyone? Well, maybe next weekend. Says a mum of 3: "beautiful sandy beach with dunes". We say: great for all-weather walks, especially with four-legged friends. The beach has great parking facilities, but note, strong tides.
Mini, free zoo of exotic birds and mammals (laughing kookaburras, ring-tailed lemurs and ring-tailed coatis). Plus landscaped, Mediterranean and water gardens. "Beautiful space where the kids climbed trees, fed the deer and donkeys, flew kites and visited the butterfly house," says a mum of 3.
