Get Your Vitamin N – March Outdoor Activity List

Last month, I started uploading a monthly outdoor activity list which you can access under the freebies tab (with the password you get sent after subscribing to the blog).  It is now time to think about the March outdoor activity list, which can now be accessed under the freebies tab 🙂    If you don’t have the password, don’t worry, subscribe to the blog and you will be sent it in your confirmation email. 

Any form of getting children into the outdoors is a good one.  Whether it is a gentle potter around the back garden, a good old hike for older ones across the countryside, if it is for 5 minutes or 5 hours, the benefits can still be reaped.  As the author Richard Louv famously suggests, we should be using vitamin N (N for nature) as treatment for nature deficit disorder. 

That is why each month, at the start of the month, I will add onto the freebies page, a monthly list of 10 activities to help inspire you to head out there for your dose of vitamin N with your little, or not so little, people.  These are some of the things I do with my three to give me some direction and an aim for getting them out there, which often helps everyone’s frame of mind.  So head over now to the freebies tab and check out the March outdoor activity list.

The aim behind the ideas for the March outdoor activity list for getting vitamin N is that they are all very simple, so shouldn’t put you off. And if you need a little more convincing about the ideas where mud is involved, head over and have a read as to why mud and dirt are worth all the extra effort 🙂  Vitamin N can be achieved without sitting in the middle of a forest, wild camping, and hunting for your supper!!  It can be achieved by just stepping outside your front door (or back door), into whatever awaits you out there.

I am hoping through these activities that you make a lot of happy memories, have fun together, and enjoy being outside.  If you need more information about an activity, I have blogged about doing most of them, so if you type in a few keywords in the search box, you should then be able to get some more information, or see what we have done in the past.

Let me know how you get on in the comments below for each month, I will love hearing about your experiences.  You can also share your experiences on social media too, it will give others ideas and I can keep up with what you are all doing.  Use the #fridayoutdoorfun on your instagram  photos, and don’t forget to join in with our Friday outdoor fun thread (every Friday). And if the children have got mucky, then join in with our Mucky Mondays thread (every Monday) over on Facebook .  Go and have fun in March 🙂Get Your Vitamin N - March outdoor activity list, outdoors, outdoor fun, outdoor activities, spring fun, vitamin N,

  1. Oh we get a daily dose of Vitamin N – I think it’s so important for children to be outdoors and gain a love of nature from a very young age. Love this.

  2. Jon

    Great post this! The size of those snowballs in the first picture is terrifying lol

  3. We are going to be getting some vitamin N this afternoon by wrapping up warm and attempting to build a snowman in the garden….so important for children to connect with nature on a daily basis if they can.

  4. We have spent all morning building snowmen – seriously the kids would be outdoors 24/7 given half a chance!

  5. We managed to get a good dose of Vitamin N last month with bike rides outside, visits to the beach, lunch outdoors and pottering in the garden. Hopefully we’ll have more of that this month!

  6. We love getting out and about. The children have loved their snow days here. Great snowball here 🙂

  7. Love the snow pictures. The kids are loving the snow here too.

  8. I love this! We live in Florida so it’s actually easier to be outdoors at this time of year than it is in the summer when it just gets too hot. We’ve had some lovely weather recently and have managed to take some trips to the zoo and the beach, so lots of Vitamin N!

  9. Mine all go stir crazy if we stay indoors, we have been having fun in some unexpected snow this week
