How are you finding half term with your little ones?
If you’re struggling to keep them entertained, you’re not alone. It can be pretty hard to keep our little dynamos occupied when they’re not at nursery or school! To help everyone out, we’ve handpicked our favourite ideas and deals to help you to make the most of what is left of your half term.
Arts and Crafts
Arts and crafts are a great way to spend time with your little one over half term! They’re inexpensive, engaging and can be educational too, and luckily, we have some super creative guest bloggers who’ve shared some wonderful ideas with us here. We hope that these inspire you!
Cooking & Baking
Getting messy in the kitchen is another great and inexpensive half term activity – as well as yummy! There are so many delicious things that you can try – these tutorials are the favourite amongst our parenting community, and we’re sure your little ones will love these too.
Ok, so with all of the storms and flooding at the moment, some of you may be reluctant to get outdoors – we can’t blame you! However, the benefits of outdoor play and exposure to mud are something you should consider, and we’re sure your little ones won’t object to getting mucky and having a wonderful time in the great ourdoors!
Why not grab yourself a bargain family day out? We’ve found some bloomin’ marvellous deals here… You could spend the day somewhere wonderful, and finish off with a slap-up family meal, for a fraction of the normal cost!
Most towns will have local facilities that you can use for free or at a low cost over the half term holidays, they’re well worth looking into as you just might find a gem…
