With the Great British weather in full swing and a very wet summer holidays ahead, Author and Creator of the BeWILDerwood books and award-winning play parks, Tom Blofeld, expresses his concerns on what impact this could have on young children and why playing in the great outdoors should always be encouraged. 

"Being a parent myself, I know how conscious we all are about how much screen time our children have. With more and more technology it’s hard to find that balance. But it worries me the impact that a rainy summer could have on our children. They may be forced to stay indoors where technology seems like the only entertainment option.
I believe as parents we have to actively encourage children to play outside, like we did when we were younger. It’s where BeWILDerwood all stemmed from, my adventures in the woods as a child. Being outdoors is so good for children and adults! It sparks imagination, helps children develop and is just good old-fashioned fun! Forget the video games and computers –let them experience a real adventure!”

With the forecast looking wet for the coming weeks, BeWILDerwood want parents to get back to nature and not let the traditional British weather put them off having family adventures. 

Encouraging families to make the most of the time off together and create lasting memories. Tom Blofeld continues, “Will your children remember it rained when they’re older? No! What they will remember is that day we all ran WILD in the woods, when they beat dad on a zip wire, splashed in puddles, they ate an ice cream in the rain! As long as they’re dressed for the weather little ones really don’t care about the rain – I think it actually makes it more fun for them! Plus, the leaves on the forest trees take care of nearly all the raindrops anyway.”

The BeWILDerwood parks are located in both Norfolk and Cheshire and the company’s whole ethos focuses on leaving technology at home and getting back to nature, no matter what age you are. They urge families to play together and get a little muddy as they explore giant slides, zip wires, den building, storytelling, crafts and more. Based on the tales and characters from the BeWILDerwood books, the parks are where these stories and adventures come to life.
