Summer Holidays Style with Fat Face PLUS Tips for making the most of the Summer Holidays

The summer holidays are finally here which for us means lots of days out, although the weather has had other ideas over the past few days! So when the sun was shining this Saturday we couldn't wait to get our new Fat Face shorts and playsuit on and head down to the river for a stroll and enjoy the sunshine.

Fat Face has just launched a new range of kids clothes designed for fun and the great outdoors. It's bright, playful and exceptional quality which for me is so important especially over the summer holidays, I want clothes that will withstand the typical likely lads and lass antics like climbing up trees too big for them, skidding down a grassy bank or getting drenched while running frantically along the sea shore! Fat Face's tag line 'Made Well, Worn Well' couldn't be any truer, Tiger especially has put his shorts through their paces.

With that said I still want the clothes to look lovely, I love bold prints and bright colours and stripes are my favorite. They are classic and as soon as I see them I just want to be near the sea, okay we didn't quite make it to the beach this time but the river was just as good. It's hard to see in the photos but Tiger's shorts have a palm tree leaf design a cool take on the camouflage print. I love how easy it was to style the Fat Face playsuit and shorts with clothes we already have in our wardrobe.

The summer holidays are my favorite, six whole weeks of the little lads and lass, we have so much planned and to look forward to. Although this wasn't always the way, I found the idea of keeping them entertained for six weeks a bit daunting but over the years I've got together a few top tips for making the most of the summer holidays. 

1. Get Organised - If you haven't already get your diary out and call/text your family and friends to meet up for days out. Make a special effort to see those you haven't seen for a while or live a bit further away. The little lads love it when we visit friends who live further afield, without the constrictions of a rigid bedtime I will usually wait until after rush hour to return home, I change the little lads into their PJs and get little blanket, such a small thing but they love the change from routine, travelling at night! Before long they usually just fall asleep in the car and we carry them to bed, luckily they are heavy sleepers!

2. Mix it Up - Summer holiday days out and activities can sometimes be expensive so I try to mix it up daily. We usually have a 'big day out' a theme park, the zoo or a trip to the beach once a week and then the other days we will do things that are low costs like pick your own Fruit Farms, special offers at the cinema or swimming and then the rest of the week and actually my favorite, free days. Just meeting up with friends and exploring a new woods, a picnic in a meadow, bike rides or actually stopping and having a wander through that pretty village you always drive through, you just never know what you will discover, you might just stumble across your new most favorite place. 

3. Use Facebook - Facebook is a great place to search for things to do that are happening in your local area. You would be surprised at how many free festivals and events are happening this summer.

4. Day of Rest - Don't be afraid to just stay in your PJs all day, grab your duvets get comfy on the sofa and watch your favorite films. Eat your favorite foods and just take it easy, I find that the little lad and lass need to recharge every now and then throughout the summer holidays, as do I!

5. And Enjoy - Enjoy the summer holidays and the time you get to spend with them, they wont be little forever and okay there will be days then you are counting down the minutes until bed time and that's okay but stop and just have a little think about your own summer holidays as a child, how do you remember yours?
