Young children can be fairly easily entertained in nature – some sticks, mud, water and leaves can keep them busy for ages, particularly if there are other children to play with, but there are times when one of them may need some quiet time on their own, or if the weather is wet. These play treats can make all the difference. Also, staying awake late in the dark is a novelty for my two and the darkness brings a heap of opportunities for fun and excitement.
Here are some tiny toys you could tuck into your bag.
