Competition – Win £200 of outdoor kids’ clothing from Skogstad

Skogstad outdoor clothes for kids competition

I have been thinking a lot lately about the idea of ‘flow’; that elusive state of mind that it’s possible to get into where time passes without you even noticing it because you are so absorbed in what you are doing.

It doesn’t happen to me a great deal to be honest – I have an amazing ability to guess the time to an astonishing degree of accuracy* – and it’s something I always wish would happen more. I suspect it may be a bit like trying to remember your dreams though, the more you struggle to hang on to them, the harder it is to do

One thing though that can often do it is being outside. I don’t mean just going and standing in the garden for a while instead of sitting watching repeats of Storage Hunters, (although that’s a good start), I mean actually outside, in coats and wellies, getting wet and muddy, breathing in the salty air straight off the sea or collecting bugs from the forest floor.

Skogstad outdoor clothes for kids competition

You know when you’re properly outside as your cheeks start to tingle and you feel warm even though it’s cold. The wind may be blowing your hair into your obligatory Mr Whippy, but you feel alive, like anything is possible. When you finally come back indoors you feel refreshed and tired all at the same time and a cup of tea, feet curled up underneath you on the sofa, muddy wellies left at the door, is suddenly the most wondrous thing in the world.

Today’s competition is all about helping you to achieve that glorious windswept Mr Whippy feeling, by kitting out your kids in jackets and fleeces from Skogstad, ready to explore the beauty of the British countryside, or any sort of countryside you like really.

Skogstad is Norway’s number one outdoor clothing brand for the family. Hitting the UK shores last year they’ve already proved popular with families who like to be out in the fresh air, weekend warriors, walkers and mums on the school run! With over 75 years’ experience in making clothes for all climates and conditions they know a bit about how to keep dry, warm and insulated and at prices that won’t break the bank. Reviewers are loving the quality and durability of Skogstad clothing – ranking them better than most of the other well know outdoor brands.

To be in with a chance to win two kids’ fleeces and two jackets, worth up to £200, simply complete as many of the Rafflecopter actions as you can before June 3rd.

Good luck!

*I’m not just boasting here, it really is an amazing skill. I can normally get to within about five minutes, wherever I am and whatever I am doing, even if I have just woken up. On Sunday we were out shopping, I guessed 1.38pm and it was 1.38pm. It’s a gift.

    We live right beside the beach so we are down on the beach daily walking our little dog. We love having picnics, building sandcastles, collecting shells and pebbles, paddling and exploring the rockpools on the beach! We also enjoy watching the ferry travel to and from Norway and we see lots of boats, yachts, surfers and courageous swimmers! So beach activities are our top outdoor activities!

  5. janis

    This would be great especially for the windy weather we get in Scotland.

  6. Emma T

    Oh and forgot to say…I’m a big fan of storage hunters having only just discovered it from my OH flicking channels in the evenings. I have no idea what most of them are going on about, but just makes me laugh – it’s like a car boot sale scrap as the sellers open the boot of the car and the buyer scramble in!

    I love getting out and about with my kids especially when the weathers good. Trips to spot wild flowers in the fields and woods is a firm favourite as is rock pooling on days on the beach. Wet weather doesn’t stop us, just add welly boots for fun in the puddles @bobbity666

We have a part of the woods where barely anyone goes, and we can spend hours collecting fallen branches and leaves for our den. Even my computer mad eldest still joins in, and we definitly all get our ‘Mr Whippy’ feeling from it! ;-) The waterproofs would help us continue even on the soggiest days! Fingers crossed! ;-)
