Welcome to July’s blog, I hope that you all enjoyed the 30 Days Wild in June and had lots of fun.
Not only did we have 30 days of Wild, but on the 21st June was the summer solstice which you can find all the history from the history channel here
So with it now being officially summer what can we get up to?
This is a summer of Sports
Football – Whilst the trophy went to Rome, what a wonderful Euro tournament with England making the final and of course it’s not long until the new football season begins, or having a football themed party? Check out these free printable(s) from Epson.
Cycling - The Tour De France has indeed begun too ending 18th July. Cycling is not just for the professionals, it can be a great form of exercise. Why not go for a bike ride this summer, but please check out this really helpful guide on keeping your bike safe from the Avon and Somerset Police. https://www.avonandsomerset.police.uk/crime-prevention-advice/staying-safe-on-the-road/keeping-your-bike-secure/
Not sure where to go here is a guide for a route in the local area https://cycleplanner.betterbybike.info/leisure-rides/Chipping%20Sodbury%20and%20Yate%20Loop
Tokyo Olympics – Did you know that there are multiple sports in the Olympics? A full list can be found here https://olympics.com/tokyo-2020/en/sports/ Let us know what your favourite sport or how many Olympic sports you have tried?
Of course it would be remiss of me not to add tennis – Wimbledon. https://www.wimbledon.com/
Apart from the odd rain, strawberries and cream make a lovely tea. Why not have a go at making this cake? https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/strawberry-cream-tea-cake
For those who are not too sporty, we have plenty of other activities that you can do as well.
Here are some free downloads from Epson for you to enjoy, which include animals, photo frames and some puzzles. Click on Printables for more.
Also for those of you who enjoyed the getting out with the wild themes please do take a look at these activities here from Wildlife’s Trusts Wildlife Watch page https://www.wildlifewatch.org.uk/activities
I hope you have a great summer and I will back in August with another summer focused theme
