Summer Holiday Activities with Asda: Grow Green Hair #SaveSummer

Summer’s officially here and we have been invited take part in Asda’s latest campaign, #SaveSummer, to keep little (and big ones) entertained over the summer holidays. Asda have thought of a fabulous list of wild and wonderful activities that are sure to get you in the summer mood over eight weeks.

Asda will co-create low-cost ideas that can inspire the whole family and stop the summer rushing by too quickly, from making home-made play-dough dinosaurs and ice cream burgers to Angry Water-Birds.

There are other #SaveSummer ideas waiting to be triggered that are weather-dependant, and some that are contextually, perhaps royally, inspired. All the ingredients to the #SaveSummer activities can be immediately ordered for online delivery or Click and Collect through Asda’s online groceries shop at http://groceries.asda.com/

You don’t need to buy new tights, you can use any old tights you may have. You might also swap the plastic cups for yogurt containers. Little man had a great time making his grass heads, now he can’t wait for the hair to grow.
