Let the kids have fun in the garden
We’re having some great weather at the moment and relaxing summer days at home are a welcome treat, especially when the children are having fun in the garden.
Notcutts has plenty of outdoor toys and games to choose from to make sure that every day is an adventure. Keep cool with a new paddling pool or water squirter, giving both you and the kids hours of fun. There are also plenty of garden games to enjoy for all the family.
If your children or grandchildren love to help with the gardening, then why not get them their own gardening tools. Notcutts has a great selection of Children’s gardening gloves, trowels, forks, spades everything you need for the young gardener.
There is plenty to choose from for the little artist and explorer too, with activity kits to make or paint, flower presses, bug collecting jars and all sorts of outdoor fun to help them learn about wildlife and keep them occupied throughout the summer.
How about doing a bit of garden camping?
You don’t have to go away to enjoy some camping activity. Some of the best childhood memories are from time spent ‘camping out’ in the garden!

Get in early with school uniform orders
While you might not want to think about going back to school just as you’re starting the summer holidays, school uniform sells out FAST and it’s a good idea to get in early with your uniform orders and be ready for September.
