I don’t know if you’ve noticed but after the brief spats of snow and the grey and wetness that is winter, the temperature is slowly (very) starting to rise and there are even spots of blue in the sky and I swear I spotted the sun.
I’m happy to say this means we need to come out of hibernation and start moving again, be it activities inside if it really is too wet or get outside in our wellies and coats and visit some of the places the UK has to offer. Locations we visit all the time can look very different during the winter months, so they’re definitely worth a look!
Half term activities
If it’s too wet in rural Dorset, we like to visit Shire Hall Museum which is great for big kids and little ones with a lot to see and do. If the weather is nice though, we can often be found using our season passes to visit Weymouth Sealife Park with indoor and outdoor activities available.
Faith from Much More with Less has got you covered with half-term as she’s come up with Half-term Activities on a Budget which is great for this time of year with some of us still in that post Christmas pinch. Fi from Fawns and Fables has done a round-up herself of 10 Ways to Keep Kids Entertained in Winter with everything from building a den to winter walks and bike rides!
If you’re keen to go snowdrop spotting, Mary from Over 40 and a Mum to One has come up with Favourite Places to Spot Snowdrops which can be great fun for the kids and a nice place to take photos too! If it is simply too yuck out there though, Becky from Baby Budgeting has sorted you out with What to Put in a Homemade Craft Box which by the sounds of it will keep the kids entertained for hours… hope you like glitter!
Finally, if you’re heading up North a bit then Sarah from Tammymum has found the perfect alternative to soft play during the rain with the Tiny Town Play Village in Nuneaton where kids get to dress up and be anyone they want to be from postman to policewoman – what a way to stretch the imagination.
Hopefully this has given you some inspiration and things to add to your to do list for the slowly emerging Spring!
