Weekly newsletter about things that kids love
Top [tested] Tips for Parents
The season after summer and before winter, in the northern hemisphere this is from September to November.
"The leaves have fallen, let's all go for a lovely autumn walk."
And hello, too, to all our new subscribers.
This newsletter celebrates an activity that won't cost you a penny (aside from travel costs). We're talking lovely autumn walks.
Be creative and get the kids to collect leaves and twigs to recreate their very own Green Man face at home. You'll need to show them pictures – the ancient symbol of nature has been recognised and revered by many civilisations and religions for over 2000 years – then see what they can come up with!
All of these walks are recommended on the app, alongside other inspiring ones.
Walk or cycle along flat family-friendly routes in this gorgeous Area of Outstanding Beauty, not far from north west London. The beech woods always look so colourful during this season. Tomorrow sees the start of a walking festival, check this out! If you join and like one – recommend it on the app.
A dad says that his family returns each spring to cycle past the graffiti, old bridges and tunnels of this disused railway line. We reckon where there are trees, there are now crunchy, golden carpets: get there before winter does.
In the grounds of QPR F.C. and schools of NW10, the Queen's Park soccer camps are a fun and energetic holiday option. “Well organised professional coaches,” says this Kinfo user. (Waving our flag of impartiality, here are links to rival Arsenal and West Ham camps, not on the app! Have you been?).
Just off the M25, a National Trust spot where you can stretch your legs around a lake, watch the ducks, then sip coffee as the kids let off steam in the large, wooden playground. Recommended by a mum of 2.
"A circular walk and logs and trees to climb on," says a mum of 1. Hugely popular, the car park fills up quickly so get there early/late at weekends. Lovely cafe for tea and cake and a great little National Trust shop, all just south of Luton. Pack wellies!
"Fantastic park with deers, we stayed the whole day," tips a mum of 3. Another Royal Park like its Richmond neighbour, this one is located opposite Hampton Court. Autumn is deer rutting (mating) season when the males fight over the roes. Watch at a distance!
