Stuck for ideas to entertain the kids this summer? Why not pop over to RSPB Titchwell Marsh and let the kids have a wild experience in the great outdoors.

In Rio this summer athletes from around the world will be competing for gold medals in a variety of disciplines.

Titchwell Marsh is celebrating the Olympics this year with a unique nature trail dedicated to nature’s Olympians.

Pick up your entry sheet from the visitor centre before setting off around the trail and decide who would win the gold medal for the marathon, the long jump, the sprint and other sporting challenges.

Younger visitors can have a go at identifying animal tracks along the East Trail and earn themselves a Titchwell Tracker award.

Other self led trails include the Wildflower Wild Challenge, the Small and Mighty wild challenge and Spike the hedgehog’s very own nature-trail.

All nature trails cost £1 per child and everyone gets a Wild Challenge certificate and badge.

On Thursdays and Fridays children can join in with activities such as natural weaving, making elder jewellery, clay animals or go on a wildlife safari.

Don’t forget to make a date with the marvelous moths on Wednesday mornings and if the weather permits, Titchwell will hold den building sessions in the afternoon.

All supervised events run between 10 am and 3 pm and if the weather is appropriate may include some activities on the beach, so families are advised to dress appropriately!

Carrie Carey, visitor experience manager at Titchwell said: “There are so many great ways to get close to nature with the RSPB and we have lots of ideas for visitors to take home and continue their wild adventure in their own back garden”.
