The importance of adventure play!

Skidded knees, scabbed arms and bumped heads were all normal parts of our childhood; but did you know that we were engaging in something called ‘adventure play’. Adventure play, also known as risky play, is defined as challenging and thrilling forms of play that involve a risk of physical injury.

Through this form of play, children are able to develop confidence whilst creating an awareness of their limits and boundaries. In short, they’re learning how to be safe! In the modern world, there has been greater concerns with the outdoors being less child-friendly than ever before, however the risks significantly outweigh the benefits children could gain.

We’ve put together some adventure play ideas that you could do with your little ones!


1. Climbing to the highest heights

I’m sure we all remember the challenge and excitement of climbing trees! Pushing yourself to get to the highest point or swinging round to get to that difficult branch; the sense of confidence and accomplishment was unparalleled.

Tree climbing is an adventure play activity which has many benefits for a developing child. It’s able to help your little one’s physical strength, focus and concentration. Even better, it helps build their resilience levels and create a ‘I can do it’ attitude – which will help them in later life. It’s the best way to get your kids off the screens and help them reconnect with nature!



2. Crackling fires and marshmallows

With the nights finally starting to get warmer, why don’t you teach your little ones how to build a fire! Spark their curiosity in a safe environment and use this as the perfect opportunity to teach your kids a myriad of expertise. Whether it’s approaching the topic of fire safety or just teaching them basic survival and bush craft skills – it’s bound to be an exciting new experience.

It’s the perfect family experience where your little ones can gain a sense of accomplishment but learn how to efficiently handle risks.  It’s also a brilliant activity for developing their motor skills and muscle memory! So, why don’t you use this as the perfect excuse to get the marshmallows out and teach them a fun new skill!

If you’re looking to learn more about the outdoors, then why don’t you sign the family up for a bush craft or survival course!



3. Playground adventures

It was always an exciting day when we were able to go to the local playground as kids. Whether it was whizzing down the slide or spinning as fast as possible on the merry-go-round – it was always exhilarating! But did you know that one of the most common forms of adventure play is playing at high speeds? This is could be either running, sliding, spinning or swinging.

Although there could be the possibility of the odd bump or scrape, this environment helps your little one establishes their boundaries and test their comfort levels. Playing at high speeds can also have an anti-phobic effect, helping your little one become less afraid in other scenarios in their life!


Here at Plum we believe that activity play is vital to a healthy and happy start in life! We have a selection of adventure play products which can provide bigger ventures and inspire more fun for your little ones. Whether it’s reaching the top of the mighty rock wall or swooping high into the sky on our swings – there’s so much to inspire your little ones and encourage safe adventure play!


4 sensory play ideas for your little ones!

Traditional teaching is often thought as being flashcards with letters, memorising and repeating the alphabet or even reading stories about everyday activities. However, children learn and understand the world better by using their senses. By touching, smelling, tasting, seeing, hearing and moving, they’re able to engage with their surroundings, which helps them make sense of their environment.  

Incorporating sensory play driven activities into your child’s life can have a positive impact on all areas of their learning. This method of play can contribute to cognitive development by stimulating the brain to make connections. This is why many of our favourite memories are often associated with our senses!  

We have put together some sensory play activity themes that your little one will love!



1. Splishy Spashy Water

When the sun is finally shining, water play is the perfect activity which can not only inspire splashy, active fun but can cool your little ones down! This can really help to develop your child’s fine and gross motor skills as they learn to pour, stir, squeeze and even paint with water!  

Whether it’s filling your water table to the brim with bright coloured balloons or having the most chaotic duck race, there are many water-based activities that the kids can get involved with. Even something as simple as funnels and buckets, can give your child a great early start to learning through hands on play!  



2. Messy Mud

Now, who doesn’t remember making massive mud pies in the garden! This is the perfect activity that helps your child connect with nature, engages their senses but best of all, creates memories! All you need are a few pieces of equipment like buckets, pans and stirring utensils, then voila, the mud kitchen is open! Don’t forget some flowers and stones for garnish!  

If you’re not wanting to deal with all of that dirty washing after the kitchen is closed, why don’t you teach the kids some gardening? You could grow a full vegetable patch or even go as small as planting cress in egg cartons. Either way it’s the perfect activity to bring the family together and engage their sense of touch!   



3. Sandy voyages

Do you fancy a day at the beach without the hassle? Then why don’t you look at having a sandy adventure in the comfort of your own garden! Getting the sandbox out helps to develop your child’s sense of texture, promotes creativity and endorses their social skills. 

Maybe your little one is feeling creative and is inspired to build the biggest sandcastle kingdom; perhaps they’re feeling exploratory and want to find the buried treasure. Either way, this is a fun and encouraging activity to help engage your child with their senses.  



4. Jelly and Slime

Who said that sensory play couldn’t be edible! Playing with jelly is a stimulating experience as they explore the wobbly, squishy texture in their hands but get to enjoy the yummy fruity taste on their tongues. If you want to encourage their curiosity, you could set toys in the mould to inspire more pretend play. If not, cutters and spoons are just as fun!  

If your children are too old for jelly, why don’t you delve into the world of slime and putty? It’s an activity that fascinates children of all ages. The feel and consistency will captivate the younger ones; whereas, the older kids will enjoy the process of creating the slime itself. You can personalise it by adding glitter, food colouring or small Styrofoam balls. It’s an activity that’ll engage the whole family!  




There are so many sensory based activities that you and the family can do together. If you fancy having a more permanent fixture for your little one, then our Plum Sensory Play range has been designed to encourage curious minds and energetic juniors to both learn and create during playtime. This exciting selection is perfect for hours of messy play by exploring new and intriguing textures.  



5 family activities that will improve health and wellbeing at home

Families up and down the country are pulling together to get through a third national lockdown. Juggling homeschooling, full-time jobs and parenting is the reality for families at this time. Amazingly everyone has stepped up to the plate, but how can you improve your families health and wellbeing when you are so busy? Here are 5 activities you can incorporate into your daily plans to encourage more feelings of wellbeing in your family life.

1. Eating meals together

Sitting down together at meal times without distractions is a great way for your family to catch up about the day. This environment helps your little ones get things off their chest as the group listens and offers advice. This can also be a great environment for both parents and children to unwind and relax into the evening.

Here is what the experts say…

‘Regular mealtimes which are shared provide a sense of rhythm and regularity in lives. They offer a sense of containment and familiarity, and can evoke deep feelings of contentment and security. Humans need structure and routine.’

-Mental Health Foundation 2021

2. Helping others

We all know that helping others feels good, but during these times it can feel more difficult due to social distancing and being advised to stay home, however there are still lots of ways you can lend a helping hand. Why not offer to do an elderly neighbours shopping or on your daily exercise you and your little ones could do some litter picking in the local community.

How does volunteering impact on our wellbeing?

‘Acts of kindness have the potential to make the world a happier place. An act of kindness can boost feelings of confidence, being in control, happiness and optimism.’

-Mental Health Foundation 2021

3. Holding on to family memories

Family memories are a part of our identity and help children to understand more about who they are and why they are here. Telling stories from the past and sharing photos with our families gives us a great sense of wellbeing. The stories you tell can be happy, informative and interesting; these stories help the past live on into the future.

What are the benefits of sharing family memories?

‘They can increase wellbeing, reduce anxiety and depression, reinforce feelings of closeness among family members, and build resilience for navigating life’s normal ups and downs.’

-Frances Lefkowitz 2013

4. Get active as a family

Getting active as a family does not have to involve relentless workouts or mountain climbing; a trip to the park or a little boogie to your favourite playlist is still getting active and let’s face it… a lot more fun! Take the pressure off of yourself to become a personal trainer or class instructor (parenting and teaching are enough!). Getting active as a family can be fun and a great way to get little ones outdoors.

How is being more active as a family good for your health and wellbeing?

‘Physical activity keeps the body strong and healthy and can improve mental health by decreasing symptoms of depression, anxiety, pain and loneliness. Physical activity can also improve focus, school performance, sleep and energy levels.’

-About Kids Health 2020

5. Creating positive relationships

We often tell little ones to treat others the way you would like to be treat. Maintaining positive friendships with family and friends helps your children to grow in confidence and self-esteem. Maintaining positive relationships is difficult, especially as we get older. Sharing the challenges of friendships with children helps them learn problem solving skills, which will help them throughout their lives.

How do positive relationships effect our wellbeing?

‘The benefits of social connections and good mental health are numerous. Proven links include lower rates of anxiety and depression, higher self-esteem, greater empathy, and more trusting and cooperative relationships.’

-Better Health 2017

We put these few suggestions together, like volunteering or family meal times to inspire your family on their health and wellbeing journey. It is important to remember this is a challenging time for families; not every day will go smoothly. You won’t be able to get outside or get everyone around the dinner table every day. We just wanted to give you a little bit of inspiration, so that if you do have time one of the days you can do a small activity.

Our Plum Discovery range has been developed with family wellbeing at its heart. The collection encourages learning through play in your back garden (ideal for homeschooling). The fun range encourages your little ones into the fresh air for hours of messy play, helping them to burn off some energy and you to have a well-deserved rest.

Bonfire night is an exciting time of year, however for a lot of families it can be an extremely difficult time also. We want to share an insight into these families lives and advise on simple ways to be more mindful during this period. We will also be giving tips on ways you can keep your family safe this bonfire night. We know our followers are some of the most caring and considerate parents, so we hope this blog can help you help each other.

Loud Noises – Share Your Plans

Photo by Jordan Whitt on Unsplash

Bonfire night can often upset our little ones. With that said, it is important to be mindful of our neighbours and if you can, let them know your firework plans in advance, so they can prepare.

Here is what the experts say…

“We would recommend that you consider your neighbours and whether they have pets, or are elderly. You can buy a range of noiseless or low-noise fireworks that will still give a great display but without disturbing others.”

-Paul Howes, Group Manager for Prevention and Protection at Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue

For those with sensory processing disorders, fireworks have the ability to cause stress, anxiety
and discomfort due to their noise and unpredictability.

– Elysium 2020

If your child does find this time of year difficult, follow the link below for Elysium’s top 10 tips.

Fluffy friends – How To Calm Them Down

Loud bangs can be very confusing for our pets and we often witness strange behaviour because of them. It can make you feel helpless watching your pet struggle with confusion and anxiety at this time of year. So here are a few tricks and ideas you can use to try and ease their stress.

There are lots of simple things you can do to help your pet deal with fireworks. By preparing in advance before fireworks start your pet will be better able to cope with the noises.

– The RSPCA 2020

  • Give your pet somewhere safe to hide, like a quite corner or under furniture.
  • If you can, walk your pets in daylight hours and keep them indoors at night time.
  • Try to mask the sound of fireworks by closing doors and windows and playing the radio.
  • Don’t punish your pets for their reaction to the fireworks.
  • Anti-stress dog bands help sensitive and/or frightened dogs to calm down during certain stressful situations as it reduces noise and provides a feeling of tucking in. (You can buy these online or make them yourself)

Keeping your family safe

For those who do have firework plans, we know you are clued up on how to keep your family safe on bonfire night. Here’s a reminder of the latest tips from our local fire department ready for your family festivities…

Every year we buy the biggest and best fireworks for our home displays but the latest advice from the Lincolnshire fire department suggests you should check that you should only buy products that are suitable for your garden and neighbourhood. Surprisingly, category 3 fireworks are for sale to the public for outdoor use.

  • Category 2 fireworks are suitable for gardens where it is possible for spectators to keep at least a distance of 5m away for safety (often 8m – always check the safety information on the packaging).
  • Category 3 fireworks (‘display fireworks’) are usually only suitable for larger open spaces where people can stand at least 25 metres away. 25 metres is about the size of three fire engines end to end – so if you couldn’t fit that in your garden – it’s not big enough!

We hope you and your family have the best experience this bonfire night and you have been able to take a few tips from us to help.

Autumn is here, every street, path and park is filled with a sea of autumnal bliss. It’s that cosy time of year where all the magic begins to happen and it all starts on the night of Halloween!

This year Halloween is on a Saturday, meaning there is a whole week of entertainment leading up to the big day. After a year of thinking outside the box to keep your little ones busy, this holiday can feel very daunting.

1. Spooky Cupcakes

Pumpkin picking is the hottest Halloween trend and if you can book yourself in, it is a great annual tradition to do with your family to capture some beautiful photos. However, if you cannot find an available pumpkin patch anywhere near you, fear not! There is nothing stopping you from picking your pumpkins up from your local shop and taking them out for a family activity and photo shoot. Find yourself a field with some hay bales and get creative.

Your local farm shop is the best place to go to find unique pumpkins.

4. Pumpkin Decorating

Carving pumpkins is becoming a thing of the past. Black, white and green is the new orange this year. With parents opting for a more creative approach, we are now seeing painted or even spray painted pumpkins on our Instagram feeds. So why not give it ago, this is a fun and creative activity to do with your little ones, although we can’t promise it will make any less of a mess!

5. Traditional Halloween Games

Traditional Halloween games are a great way for both you and your little ones to feel festive, we love:

  • Apple bobbing
  • Halloween musical statues – get the classic Halloween tunes on like monster mash!
  • Guess what’s in the spooky box. Fill individual boxes with fake spiders, skeletons and sweetie eye balls and blind fold your little ones so they can guess what is in the box.

6. Trick Or Treating

This year Halloween is going to be a little different. We wanted to inspire you to create an exciting trick or treat experience all around your home. By making every door in your house a new door to knock on, your little one can still have an authentic Halloween experience by collecting their sweets from each room. You can adopt the different styles and treats you get when you go trick or treating…Some people give fruit, others opt for money or there are the traditional sweet treats. Different treats behind each door adds to excitement!

If you have any of our outdoor toys, here’s how you can incorporate them into a creative Halloween at home…

5 reasons why you should scoot to school

The school run, there is a reason why it is called a school run and not walk. We are rushing around trying to make sure your little ones have everything they need for the day ahead…Then…Just as you close the front door, you find out its sports day!

By the time you leave the house you feel rushed and want to get your little ones to school as quickly as possible, so they get a good start to the day.

But what if we told you scooting to school will give you and your children the best start to your day? Here are 5 reasons why.

  1. Less cars are on the road

More than 1,000 children a month are injured on local roads around British schools, according to insurance industry figures. With fewer cars on the road we can make school areas safer for children.

2. Scooting to school is good for the environment.

Picking up a scooter will greatly reduce your children’s exposure to pollution, high levels can cause conditions like asthma. Rising levels of pollution around schools are becoming an increasing concern, with 2019 seeing the highest recorded level of children being taken to school in cars.

3. Children are awake and ready for learning. 

Scooting to school will make a huge difference to your little one’s day. According to a recent study, physical activity before class led to increases in students’ test scores, overall physical activity and confidence in their academic ability. Scooting to school promotes a healthy and active lifestyle for your child, which will help to keep your little ones safe at this uncertain time.

The study;

Ready to Learn: The Impact of the Morning Blast Physical Activity Intervention on Elementary School Students
Tingting Xu, Erik Jon Byker, Monica Rae Gonzales

4. Save money on petrol. 

We all fill up at the beginning of the week and think this has got to last me until the end! Going back and forth soon adds up and it is the little trips like the school run that wastes your petrol. Give yourself the satisfaction of making a full tank last a whole week.

5. Scooting to school with your child allows you to value more moments together.

A survey by Highland Spring prior to lockdown says the average British family spends 34 minutes a day together in the week. This is because parents have long working hours and are exhausted after the daily commute. With lockdown turning living rooms into offices, family time is more accessible than ever! So, what better time than now to make the change from car to scooter on the school run.

Final word

2020 has bought a lot of things, the biggest being change. Scooting to school is a positive change for you and your family. Now is the time to pick up your scooter and ditch the car. Value every moment together as a family, even the school run!

Spring Blog

Plum are celebrating 30 years of play and we want to inspire families to get outdoors and stay active this spring! We provide play for every stage of childhood, from baby’s first steps to their first swing and slide, bigger jumps, adventures and beyond.

There is so much more to play than meets the eye, the simple joy is seeing children learn, discover, experiment and grow in confidence through play and create a childhood of great memories.

According to the Play in Balance Campaign commissioned by Persil, almost a third of children in the UK play outdoors for 30 minutes or less a day. Sir Ken Robinson, expert in education, says “Play helps children to learn and experiment, to focus and concentrate, be more self-directed, and to build social confidence. Play also helps children to learn important social values, such as sharing, following rules, taking turns, valuing the choices of others, accepting losing, perseverance, tolerance, open mindedness and empathy.”
