Kids love to be outside. Really, they do!

Running and jumping and exploring – it’s what we did as kids right? And we’ve got the tales and, for some, the scars to prove it.

So it is important to make the garden as safe as possible. Put away any garden tools, have the hose rolled up – tangled hoses are a monty for tripping little legs. And trim back any protruding branches, especially at eye height .
