Here, more great half-term ideas to make it a success!

What type of half-term fun do your kids love?

Keeping kids entertained can be tricky, especially when you have different ages and genders to keep happy!

@Sabretiggr summed it up perfectly – “Depends on the weather! Cold and damp = museums, cinema, indoor activities. Dry and bright = countryside walks. Snow = lots more fun outdoors!”

Another thing that many of you agreed on, is that half term is more fun with friends, new and old!

What about the weather?

The weather has a big impact on plans, but it is important to make the most of the sunshine when it does decide to make an appearance, and have a back-up plan for when it doesn’t.

@Tantrums2Smiles has a great idea – “We sometimes creating a summer holiday bucket list board where we all share ideas that we would love to do over the holidays and try to tick off as many as we can. Everything from baking & park trips to holidays and day trips! It could work for any time”

How to save money at half term

School holidays can quickly become very expensive so discounts and money off always help out when it comes to keeping the kids happy and entertained.

Mine are 5 and 10 years old and both LOVE a good trip to a theme park or spending the day hopping on and off rides! I think we are hoping to plan a surprise trip to Chessington this year as we haven’t been yet! @Tantrums2Smiles

I’d love to treat our family to this Never been as a family to a London Show @missielizzieb

@Missielizzieb said that she loves combining books with inspiring trips. David Walliams and Roald Dahl books are good examples where you can go see places in the books and @chelseamamma responded that they were opening a new David Walliams area at Alton Towers soon that the kids couldn’t wait to visit.
