    On a similar theme you could collect leaves etc to make a picture with them.

    Chalk drawing on the garden patio.

    Chalk hopscotch.

    London museums are mainly free to get into. Or look for local attractions that ask for a donation rather than entrance fee.

    We go to the local parks (3 of them for variety)

    We go to feed the ducks and swans

    We go to the beach in the summer

    We go to the library were they have a kids section and we usually turn up when there will be other kids there

    Great idea for a thread!

    Summer picnics , even better if you can go by bike

    Gardening with mummy!

    Tesco have balloon modeling balloons in large packets fokr £1, so you can make those balloon models that they always want when your on a day out (recomened a value manual balllon pump tho!) We spent about 2 hours on it last time...

    I willl have a think about more days out style ones

    Messy play - painting, gluing

    Going on a walk with 'aims' like see who can collect the most twigs or flowers.. Make a fun game out if it.. Then whatever you do collect you can use to make prints and collages

    Free farm (one by me)

    Making ice lollys (squash and water or fruit juice or milkshake)

    Water fights!!!!! :D

    Making paper aeroplanes and having races up n down garden or park

    Making paper boats or boats out of plastic bottles, tins ect take them to stream or shallow waters n have boat races .. Can also do this in bath tub.. Or any long plastic container

    Make a kite (google it) or even buy one for ~£5 as a big but inexpensive birthday present, size matters to kiddies. Then next time the weathers getting in the way of a day out go attempt to fly a kite :)
