This is our Outdoor Play Journal


We created The Snug Shepherd huts and kitchens to encourage children (and grown ups!) to get outside and enjoy playing in the great outdoors. 

Since setting up the business, so many wonderful creative, sensory, messy and imaginative play ideas have come out of playing in them that we wanted to create a dedicated page where we can share some of our outdoor play ideas for you to try at home!

So please have a browse through the activities that we have uploaded so far and feel free to try and share any outdoor play ideas you find with your little ones at home. Better still, if you have any outdoor play activities that you'd like to share with us, then please do get in touch. We love to hear what your little ones have been busy doing/ making/ imagining outdoors!

Pop back soon to try out a few more outdoor play ideas!
