Family Fun in the Kent Downs
There’s so much to do as a family in the Kent Downs. Getting your kids out in the countryside is not only healthy but encourages a love of nature and can be a whole lot of fun for free. Rolling down hills, climbing trees, climbing stiles, collecting sea-shells, conker collecting, kicking through autumn leaves…all simple, free and liberating pleasures. Nothing beats a good dose of fresh air in a beautiful location. Below are a host of inexpensive ideas to entertain your family.
The Kent Downs Education Website – although designed for schools, this website features loads of child friendly walk, all with easily downloadable maps and activities which can be enjoyed by everyone, particularly young families.
The Green Gang
Organised by White Cliffs Countryside Partnership, around 150 Green Gang events are organised every year during school holidays. The events include environmental and science activities, as well as arts and craft activities.
Check out Kent County Council’s excellent website which features loads of family activities from walking and cycling through to specially organised events.
The Woodland Trust Nature Detectives website is a great source of ideas for children and families to have fun in the countryside.
