25 MORE Child Friendly Activities to do at Eco-Gites of Lenault

Posted by Rosie

I recently drew up a list of 25 things you can do when visiting Eco-Gites of Lenault that do not involve leaving the gite at all and often are totally free.  However I quickly realised there was far more I could suggest so here are 25 MORE Child Friendly Activities to do:  

1.  See how many bird songs you can hear
2.  Ride a bike on the boules pitch or up and down our track
3.  Have breakfast, lunch and dinner in the garden
4.  Play Tag or Hide and Seek
5.  Play with all the toys we provide

6.  Do a Nature's Treasure Hunt
7.  Make leaf pictures 
8.  Toast marshmallows
9.   Do a puzzle
10. Feed the chickens
11. Make a photo diary
12. Play football


13.  Have a race
14.  Have a water fight
15.  Have a snail race
16.  Paddle in a stream

17.  Blow dandelion clocks
18.  Look for animal tracks
19.  Learn how to use a compass
20.  Jump on the trampoline

Fun on the trampoline

21.  Make a den
22.  Stay up and watch the bats
23.  Lie back on the grass and watch the clouds pass over
24.  Write and perform a play or have a fashion show

And finally:

25.  Turn off all the computers, TVs, phones, DSs etc, remove all headphones, disconnect from everyone except yourselves and have some quality family time together!

  1. Love the paddling in the local stream, what a wonderful place for kids to explore and enjoy x

    1. Our boys are very lucky, as are gite guests when they come!

  2. So many good ideas! I wouldn't be able to find so many myself! I love the 25th! I'd love to be really able to keep off of my phone and computer for some looooong days with my family...

  3. What fun, these all look great and would love to visit one day x

    1. Thank you, Susan and we would love to see you here one day soon!

  4. So many great ideas there. It sounds like it would be a wonderful fun and relaxing holiday there.

  6. Some great ideas - what a wonderful holiday destination for children :) #letkidsbekids

    1. Thank you Kate - we have seen many children (and their parents) have a lovely holiday here.

  7. Some lovely ideas, looks like your one child policy on the trampoline is as effective as ours!

    1. In fairness that was a "staged" photo and all the children wanted to be in it ;)

  8. Oooh, I love number 23 and of course 25. What a lovely place to visit. Thanks so much for supporting the outdoor play party :-)

    1. Thank you and I, too, like 23 and especially 25.
