10 fun things to do during half term
Half term can be stressful – places can be busy.
It is also a nice time to spend quality time with your children and have family time.
Sassy Bloom have put together 10 activities to do, in and out the house to keep you all amused over the half term period.
It can also be an expensive time so we have tried to include some activities that wont break the bank as well.
1) Museums – all over the UK there are museums that are suitable to visit with children. Even if you don’t think that everything may be suitable for your children, it may be worth checking out that one activity/ exhibition that they may enjoy. if you are hitting London then the National museums have no entrance fee. The Science Museum has a great section for toddlers in their basement, along with a bubble show for children of all ages to enjoy. If you are planning to go to the museum, get there for opening to avoid the busy times.
2) Take your child on public transport – you will amazed by how excited your toddler will be at travelling on a bus, train or tram. Find a short journey that you can do with them – maybe try to make the destination somewhere that you can amuse them for a couple of hours before travelling back.
3) Local library – many local libraries have reading hours or activities for children during half term. You can get there early let them choose some reading books for them to take away with you.
4) Local Park – Find a nice park – perhaps travel to one of the National Trust sites which you can find online. Although its too cold for a picnic, perhaps find one with a great forest trail, boating lake, animal park or a nice cafe to get some lunch after a long walk.
5) Cooking at home – Get everyone involved in cooking your meals at home. if that’s not fun for them , then try some baking they will definitely be excited for that, especially if they can eat them at the end.
6) Cinema – There are lots of children’s films out at the cinema this half term. Take a trip to your local cinema or for a real treat find your nearest Imax.
7) Activity Groups – for younger toddlers there are lots of classes (music,dance, soft play) available for children of all ages. Check with your local children’s centre what is available to you during half term.
8) Potty Training – If you don’t want to be out and about this half term and if you have thinking about potty training your child and have been putting it off, then half term is the perfect time to spend time at home.
9) Play dates – think of fun things to do with your child and their friends. Try building camps at home, have an arts and crafts afternoon, make pictures that they can take home to show their parents, or try cooking with them as well.
10) To the shops – but not in the normal way. Some stores such as IKEA and B&Q offer activities for children during half term. B&Q offer DIY courses for children and IKEA are holding face painting and craft workshops.
