Get them outdoors | Capture the Flag

Friday, 1 July 2016



When the kids are running around outdoors, we're all happy. They might moan when they're tucked up inside clutching their iPads, but the second we set foot out the door they run off with a smile on their face. Even better if they have friends to run around and have adventures with.

We spent last weekend camping at Three Cliffs Bay in the Gower. I don't have the words to explain how utterly beautiful it is, so I'll just leave it to this:



With eight adults and 10 kids, we had the perfect crew for some team games. After multiple cricket, football, swing ball and glow stick light saber battles, we took to the beach for a game of Capture the Flag.

To get to the perfect spot we had to walk stoney paths, cross stepping stones and wade (shallow) rivers. It was so worth the journey. The view was just stunning.



The kids had never played Capture the Flag before, but loved the idea of being able to put grown-ups in prison. They ran around until their legs were exhausted, then skimmed stones and splashed in the river until it was time to walk back to camp for hot dogs and s'mores on the BBQ.

Have you played Capture the Flag before? Here's how our game went down (spoiler: it got pretty competitive, pretty quick 😬)

  8. I've never played it but it looks like the kids had great fun. We haven't been camping yet because my youngest is too small but I'd love to in a year or two.
