The outdoor season is here! See how you can enjoy the arrival of spring, even if you live right in the city. Simply pack a light bag or two, and head out to find a green patch to borrow.
An evening on the town
A small park or a bench lined with greenery is all you need to kick-start spring. Just pack the necessities and go. For extra cosiness and an added sense of adventure: make it a night-time outing.
Find a seat and make it yours
Don’t underestimate what a little effort can do for the mood. Take one minute to hang some decorative lighting and make the evening twice as nice.
Bring some extra warmth
Springtime temperatures are often a gamble. To be safe, bring a hot beverage. And then you might bring something to nibble on, too. (If you have trouble deciding, the link offers suggestions.)
There is no such thing as too cosy
You may be in a public place, but tonight it’s yours. No need to compromise on comfort, so bring cushions and throws to soften the spot just right.
A playful breakfast outside your door
You don’t have to travel far to make a picnic special. Enjoy a spring morning with your child right outside your front door. Grab folding chairs, a box of food and drink, toys and decorations, and step out.
Set a table for two
When you’re a small crowd, stay close. Let the lid of your picnic box act as a table, and maybe add a tray for stability.
Celebrate spring with some brought-along colour. If it’s early in the season, the effect will be even greater. Also, you can charge solar-powered lamps for later.
Let everybody join in
Even if you’re a party of two, there’s always room for an extra companion or two (especially if they bring their own food).
Random day, Saturday feeling
You’ve had your spring-greeting breakfast and your day has just begun. Savour the moment while you decide on which games to play, and in what order.
