It’s important to keep exploring the great outdoors whatever the weather. It’s funny because last week we had a lot of snow and people stayed indoors keeping warm. There are so many activities that you can do in the snow like building a snowman, sledging, making a foot trail, etc. There are also lots of activities that you can do while the weather is not that bad. This is what HONEST Drinks are trying to achieve by producing a fantastic activity guide encouraging families to get outdoors.
INTRODUCING HONEST KIDS DRINKS
The idea for Honest Kids, came from Seth and Barry’s kids, the founders of America’s favourite herbal tea brand HONEST. Inspired by their parents’ creation, the kids wanted their own fruit juice drinks that they could enjoy while their parents drank their HONEST teas. Adapted slightly for the British palate, the three HONEST Kids flavours are all certified organic by the Soil Association and have a deliciously refreshing taste.
They are launching Honest Kids, a new organic juice drink; a juice drink range to keep active kids refreshed. It comes in three flavours:
- Appley Ever After
- Berry Berry Good
- Twisted Tropical Punch
You can find this organic juice drink in Tesco stores nationwide and is a simple and organic option for parents to give their kids whether they are playing in the garden or out in the playground. Combining just organic fruit juices, water and natural flavourings, HONEST Kids provides a simple and great tasting drink your kids will love which can contribute to their daily fluid needs.
HONEST Kids range:
- contains no added sugar
- is low-calorie
- is sweetened only with fruit juice
The handy 200ml bottle means it is easy to put in a sports bag, lunch bag or handbag for parents taking the kids to sports training or for a family day out.
THIRST FOR THE GREAT OUTDOORS ACTIVITY GUIDE
On our way to do the activity, we chose from the guide
We recently discovered the HONEST Kids Thirst for the Great Outdoors Activity Guide. It has been put together by HONEST with the help of their ambassador Julia Bradbury. I am sure most of you know her, she is a leading television presenter. I met her at an HONEST Event which I also blogged about.
The guide offers lots of ideas to help families get out and about to enjoy the great outdoors. After downloading the guide (you can also do the same HERE) we picked an activity which we thought the girls would enjoy.
Ready to prepare the maze
The guide suggests great ideas to bring families closer and make the most of the world around them; both outdoors and indoors. The guide provides creative, cost-free and fun ideas that parents can use to inspire ‘organic family time’. See below the list of ideas:
- List of activities
- Flower treasure hunt
- Daisy chain making
- build your own den
- Mini dens for elves or fairies
- Stick elves and fairies
- Museum tour
- Create your own treasure hunt
We did a video of the activity that we chose, “Create your own string maze”. Check it out below:
What do you think of the video? We had so much fun doing it. This activity is so easy to do and I know your kids will love it as much as my girls did. This is what you need in order to do this activity.
- String – at least 30 metres
- Start and end point
- Mini bells (optional)
- Treasure (optional)

How to set up
Step 1: Find a narrow space for the string maze. This could be outside in a garden or park using tree branches/trunks, garden furniture, or even inside using door handles or furniture.
Step 2: Construct the maze by zig-zagging the string through the space, wrapping it around branches or furniture at different heights and sides.
Bella crossing the maze
The idea is for the kids to get from one end of the maze to the other without touching the string. To make the activity more exciting, yet safe at the same time, follow these top tips:
1. The first time, help kids carefully step through the maze.
2. Take it slow, it’s not a race.
3. Work in pairs; one person guides the other through, making sure they are careful to avoid touching the string.
Bella getting hydrated with her HONEST Kids drink after doing the activity
I hope that you also download the guide and choose an activity to do with your family. Spending quality time with your family outdoors helps build family bonds. You are creating memories that your kids will remember forever.
Also, remember to keep your kids hydrated and what better way to do this than providing HONEST Kids drinks for your little ones. Keeping kids refreshed is important, especially when playing or being physically active. Moreover, HONEST Kids drinks are certified organic by the Soil Association. Choosing organic means you as a parent can be confident that when your children enjoy a bottle of HONEST Kids, all its ingredients have been grown and managed without manufactured herbicides or artificial fertilisers. Fantastic right?
Have you tried HONEST drinks before? What do you think of their new organic and natural flavoured juice drink, HONEST Kids? Will you get some? What about their new Honest Kids Thirst for the Great Outdoors Activity Guide? Will you try any of the suggested activities?

I have tried the honest pouches I have not seen the bottles. I would like the bottles better. They can be recycled better. I will have to check my local mart for the bottles. #KCACOLS

Good to be outside with the kids doing activities as my boys need lots of fresh air! I haven’t tried the drinks yet but plan to:)
Red Rachel says
We have not tried the HONEST Kids drinks yet but will definitely keep an eye out for them. My little girl is not very fond of plain water so these sound perfect to get her drinking more without any of the bad stuff. I love the message of this post, to get out and be active no matter what the weather. This is something I have vowed to do with my daughter. I try and get her out in the fresh air as much as possible! #KCACOLS
Acorn Books says
These look great. My kids will usually just have water but when they do ask for juice I always try and find a low sugar one so it’s good to know about these. The activities look like so much fun too! #KCACOLS
