Wear suitable outdoor clothing for the season, such as sturdy boots, layers of clothes (how many will depend on the season/weather), long sleeved tops and trousers (this will keep you and your little ones warm on cold days and stop them being burnt or being scratched on warm days), hat – sunhat in summer, warm hat in winter, sun cream in summer, gloves and scarves in winter. Also consider waterproof jackets and trousers if the weather is a bit wet; there is lots of fun to be had outside exploring even if it is raining. Especially during the spring and summer consider taking insect repellent.
