A Fantastic Day Out with the Kids that doesn’t Cost a Penny

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of National Trust. All opinions are 100% mine.

I had never even heard of the National Trust until about 3 months ago when I got a leaflet through my door. But it looked quite interesting but didn’t really tell me much about what they offer. It just told me that they are a charity and a rely on donations, memberships etc. That they protect and open to the public over 350 historic houses, gardens and ancient monuments. And they also help protect woods, beaches, farmlands, nature reserves, castles and more. But it also said that they had good places to go for families, but it didn’t say what exactly, so I checked out their website www.nationaltrust.org.uk, And I am so glad that I did as I was amazed at the things that were available for me and my family!

Just over Easter they had Easter Egg Hunts held over different locations throughout the UK. They held Easter Egg trails with different activities including face painting, sack races, giant Snakes and Ladders and loads more too!!  Join in the Easter fun with National Trust

Have you heard of Geocaching?? It’s the new trend that’s spending through the UK and it’s provided by the National Trust. I first heard of Geocaching about a month ago on a kids TV programme, and I was amazed  and got all excited like a little kid. Basically it’s a treasure hunt that uses a GPS device. You enter your coordinates that leads you to a little treasure box filled with little treasures like marbles, mini toys, etc, you can take one of the little treasures but you have to replace it with one of your own! How cool is that!! There is also a log book to record your find. My kids would just LOVE to do this, In fact I am planning on doing it with my own family very soon! I think I’ll be more excited about finding the ‘treasure’ more than the kids will be!

They also have loads of other fun things to do outside like Walks for Little Legs great for the younger ones, Family Bike Rides,  Camping and don’t forget to check out 50Things website for a fantastic lists of 50 things that you must do before you are 11 3/4 !! My 8 year old son wants to start doing this, likeright now!
