National Parks Week - 25th June to 31st July
This week is National Parks Week, this is a week to celebrate everything naturally unique and wonderful about our national parks.
Why not visit your nearest national park and enjoy a picnic on us. Here is a shortlist of products to make the visit even more special - why not chuck in some local produce!
The GoFindIt Nature Treasure Hunt game is a fun way to explore the great outdoor - using all your senses! you can organise the games really quickly and they can last from minutes up to hours, depending on the time you have. Essentially though, this is a REALLY cool scavenger hunt, with neat little cards that are versatile enough to be used in any outdoor environment… it doesn’t matter if you’re in the countryside or the city. Just play. Oh, it can be played by children and adults too and no two games will ever be the same. As you can see, the cards all have a funky design and come in a handy drawstring pouch. We think these are great for throwing in the picnic basket or rucksack - especially for family trips.
