Dublin based charity SCOOP Foundation recently launched their free Summer Activity Guide with suggestions for low-cost family outings and activities to keep kids entertained throughout the summer months.
With more than 50 destinations in Dublin, the guide includes castles, beaches, parks, playgrounds and free attractions as well as home activities such as simple baking recipes and top reads.
The free downloadable guide was launched to celebrate the charity's new ambassador, award-winning novelist Marita Conlon McKenna.
Marita’s most famous book, Under the Hawthorn Tree, is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, with the core of the story dealing with poverty and hunger - the main issues the charity is trying to combat through education.
The SCOOP Foundation support children out of poverty through education, nutrition and housing in India and Cambodia.
