Father son walking
For Father's Day this year we thought we would share some ideas for gardening and nature-based fun that you can enjoy together as a family.

Taking a walk in nature is a wonderful family activity, suitable for all ages. It's an opportunity to reap the benefits of being in nature, whilst also enjoying each others company and stretching your legs.

To add another element to your walk, you can look around you and talk about the different parts of nature you notice, or that you enjoy. You can adapt these discussions about nature depending on the ages of those participating.

Garden treasure hunts are a lot of fun. The family can plant clues around the garden, with one leading to the next. These could be written on post-it notes, paper or perhaps little stones.

Then the father of the family can follow the clues and try and figure out where the next one is hidden. At the end, the last clue could lead to a card or present you have for your father.

Making a bird-feeder together is something you could do on the morning of Father's Day, and then you can sit out in the garden and enjoy seeing what birds come to eat the meal you have made for them!

Many bird feeders are quick and simple to make. To read our guide on making a bird-feeder, click here.
