Just in time for summer, Get Out and Grow, is launching an incentive encouraging students to head outside and get planting, growing and learning about just where fruit and vegetables come from.
Why? Because according to a recent survey, 90% of children said that they would like a garden at school and at one primary school in Lincolnshire, a school garden made all the difference when it came to pupil’s behaviour.
Sudocrem are working with Clifton and the charity Green Fingers to get kids into gardening. Where does Sudocrem fit in? Well they’ve launched a product called My Little Sudocrem which is perfect for little green fingers!! It’s soothing and ideal for treating skin exposed to the wear and tear of gardening. No wonder people call it the Swiss army knife of skincare.
With stories of childhood obesity never far from the headlines, it’s easy to believe that each generation of children is lazier than the last. But a new survey of 6 – 11 year olds suggests that British children believe they’re wrapped in cotton wool by their parents and would like more freedom to play outside. So that’s where the Sudocrem Play More Campaign wants to help.
We have been out and about getting messy and grubby all summer so when Persil got in touch about there new ‘Persil Wild Explorers’ app it sounded perfect for us, at the same time Comfort had sent me a sample of their new super concentrated fabric softener. Everything was in line for us to have some extra messy fun and be left with super clean and super soft laundry.
I know it can feel like we get a bit of a raw deal when it comes to Summer in the UK. Heavy rain one week followed by a week of heat almost unheard of. Then before you know it there’s a definite chill to the air morning and evening and the sense that Autumn is knocking on the door.
I love getting outdoors with L, we are always playing and investigating the world together. I’m a big believer in getting grubby and just having fin but recently it has become apparent that maybe I need to be teaching him a bit more about nature.
