School Holidays, the long awaited spring time break for you and the kids to enjoy the changing season in the great outdoors. The mornings get warmer, the birds sing a little louder and you can start to smell that sweet summer air.
Whether you’re getting out to the annual camping spot or spending a spring time Sunday hiking on the trails, here are some essentials to get you and the kids geared up! (oh… and make sure they’re entertained while you take some time to relax!).
The AMK SOL Scout Survival Kit helps with priorities in a survival situation. Escape the elements, stay warm, and signal rescuers so you're easy to find. The Scout has you covered on all fronts with a heat-reflective 2-person survival blanket providing warmth and shelter from wind, rain, and snow, while the one-hand operable Fire Lite Longer striker and waterproof tinder produce multiple campfires. A 100dB Slim Rescue Howler Longer rescue whistle and Rescue Flash Longer signal mirror with retro-reflective aiming aid make it easy for you to signal your position to rescuers, and a compass, duct-tape and fishing/sewing kit round out the package. A professional-grade RF-welded waterproof bag keeps contents dry in any conditions.
With all these great tools, get the kids involved teaching them essential skills they can carry throughout their adventurous lives. Get your imagination going and set up some survival situations in the backyard!
The Vango Skye 500 5-man tent is a 3-poled tunnel tent that’s super easy to pitch, a great space to pack-size ratio and is highly functional. The large porch is great for storing kit and features a linked-in groundsheet, which can be rolled under the bedroom area when not required. Clear side windows allow light into the porch area, whilst the Nightfall inner bedroom reduces the morning light. This tent is a great choice for weekend camps and festivals.
While you’re teaching the kids survival situations in the backyard, try out the new family tent for post lockdown adventures! If you’re fortunate enough to be getting out in the wilderness these holidays, then the Vango Skye is a great option to shelter the tribe at night.
The Pocket knife is one of the most essential tools for efficiency and safety in the wilderness, but some of the options out there can be dangerous to introduce to your little adventurers.
The Opinel Junior is a great option to get the kids using outdoor tools. Whether it be whittling away at a homemade, tree branch hiking pole or marshmallow skewer, or cutting up some camping snacks to cook on the portable stove - Then this knife is a great option. Its rounded tip, high grip handle, and safety loop allow for full usage and effectiveness without the dangers of some of the more ‘grown up’ options by Opinel.
Mystical Fire Flame Colorant creates beautiful, colored flames with your fire. Use 3 packs for best results lasting up to 45 mins. Mystical Fire provides a whole new way to enjoy a wood-burning fire, it's the best campfire novelty product on the market today and you'll be amazed by the vibrant colors produced. The flames of this campfire novelty turn from red to blue to green to violet and can provide hours of entertainment for the kids (And you!).
The Survive Outdoors Longer Mag Striker is the all in one fire starter that includes the essentials needed for starting a fire - A steel striker, flint rod, and magnesium. The tool is designed with the flint and magnesium rods embedded into the robust handle, meaning your grip will not disappear as you shave off the magnesium, unlike with a traditional magnesium fire starter. The curved edge on the steel scraper is engineered to make scraping a pile of magnesium easier. The straight edge struck against the flint rod acts as your flint and steel, creating a shower of sparks to ignite the magnesium and light your kindling. The Mag Striker makes starting a fire easier, even with cold fingers or in survival situations. Oh and just for a little bit more versatility a bottle opener is included on the striker, so you can relax with a cold beverage once your fire is burning steadily.
With a reduced length, the FUNLINE TREEWEAR can also be used for a lower set-up and is ideal for children and beginners. In addition, the printing allows a good grip on the first wobbly steps. Not surprisingly the Fun Line was awarded Second Place as - Toy of the Year with the Toy Industry Award.
This slackline is a great way to keep both the kids and you entertained on the campsite or in the backyard, growing skills like balance, concentration and coordination all while having a rad time.
Hopefully, now you’re ready to gear up the family for the school holidays. Get outdoors with the kids and expose them to all the amazing things the wilderness has to offer, especially this time of year. If Lockdown has got the better of you on this time off, now is a perfect time to teach the kids about gear and outdoors safety, so get out into the back and set the tent up for a stay at home adventure!
