Get outdoors and explore all the natural spaces in the city
KITE stands for Kids In The Environment and it is a great group aimed at getting children outdoors exploring, enjoying and embracing nature and the outdoors. The event, taking place in Tameside this weekend, is perfect for parents who want to do more outdoor activities with their children.
This fun event is aimed at children between the ages of 7 and 11 years old. Bring your kids along for two hours of exploring the outdoors and enjoying some fresh air and nature.
With a range of games and activities, this will get your little ones away from their computers and instead involved with some healthy, outdoor fun. There will be lots of practical activities, from pond dipping to tree planting. These will be activities that many children have never tried and they will love the new experience. Lots of parents struggle to find fun things to do with their children outdoors, it can be even harder in winter, so KITE is perfect. There will also be a chance to gain a certificate whilst participating. The John Muir Environmental Award Scheme works alongside KITE and gives children a chance to gain an award for learning about nature and helping to conserve the area.
This activity is a great way to discover and explore the nature which is all around in the city, but is often overlooked. The group meets on the first Sunday of each month. To get involved, simply meet the group at 10am at the Park Bridge Heritage Centre. You can call 0161 342 4144 for more information.
Join the gang on Sunday 4th February and get outdoors. This is a great way to start the month and keep your kids active and motivated. Come along and see what exciting things they will learn.
