The Outdoor Summer Holiday Bucket-list

If you live in the UK the Summer Holidays will be arriving in a matter of days, for some of you over the Scottish Boarder, you will be already enjoying the slower days. I am so ready for the summer holidays this year, I am lucky, that as a teacher I get to spend the summer with my children. But in the last few years, the summer holidays have often filled me with dread. Six weeks is a long time to keep two little ones entertained and I have often found myself feeling overwhelmed.

I know many of you are probably feeling the same, summer holidays are long and can be expensive if you’re not careful.

Positive attitudes developed in childhood can follow through to the rest of their lives, and so it’s crucial to start young. Here are some of the ways you can build up this skill with your kids.

Genius Time-Saving Hacks For New Parents

The word "busy" doesn't truly capture the frenetic pace at which modern parents must live their lives. Not only do they have to go to work, ensure they get their 20 minutes of exercise per day, prepare healthy food, and pursue their hobbies, but they also have to take care of their kids too. To say that the schedule of most parents is insane is, frankly, an understatement. 

Life is tough for parents. All of a sudden, they become a taxi service and a concierge service for their children, having to predict their needs as well as their own. It's a tough existence. But the good news is that there are plenty of hacks out there for parents to save time and take back control of their schedules. By implementing some of these ideas, you can free up time and regain your freedom.
