Try geocaching: this isn’t something we’ve tried yet, but have friends who do it all weekend. Geocaches are treasures hidden by other players; usually little plastic containers with a few trinkets inside. You download an app, get GPS information for the geocaches you want to find, then start hunting. There’s usually a logbook inside and you can take one of the knickknacks home, leaving one of your own behind for the next people to find. Remember to take the hand santitser!
Take a trip to your local park– we need to make the most of the fact these are open at all this lockdown! This could soon change! Try to avoid crowded times and remain 2m from other families at all times.
Have a lazy day and enjoy some family Hygge time together, we have some ideas HERE.
Have a non-birthday party – think tea, cakes, party games and balloons!
