Celebrate May day- hunt out for some old fashion fun! Any May pole dancing? If you are in London, these look great: Covent Garden May fayre and Puppet festival and Urban Village fete, Greenwich.

Walk, walk, walk….. it is “Walk to school week” 15th-19th, so let’s get walking………. if you normally walk, think of another journey that you use a car for and walk instead.

Plant some flower seeds– we always plant sunflowers just because I love them!

Beautiful colours everywhere- Go on a walk and spot as many colours in nature as you can? Can you spot every colour in the rainbow? You could make a Spring bracelet, click here for more information.

Have a picnic Make the most of these sunny spring days, grabs some sandwiches and have some fun!

Visit a Museum- 18th May is International Museum day, let’s celebrate the wonderful we are so lucky to visit here in the UK. What is your favourite museum to visit? We recently visited the National army museum which is great. Tom’s favourite is definitely the transport museum (click here for more information).

Well I hope you found this post useful! If you have got suggestions of things we should be doing in May let me know! Happy May everyone! xx
