Holiday Makers logo on BritMums

Psst – did you know that every time your child brushes their teeth, rides in a car and even wears clothes that they’re engaging with engineering? We bet they don’t! This summer they can spend the summer feeding their curiosity, exploring and problem solving – they’ll have so much engineering fun, they won’t even know they’re learning!

Finding activities that keep kids busy and their minds active over the summer isn’t always easy. At #TheHolidayMakers Twitter chat, we’re talking about fun free summer activities on The Holiday Makers site (launches 19 July) that will keep your kids entertained and stimulated as well as open their eyes to all the things that being an engineer means. (Anyone interested in creating apps or being an engineer at the Warner Bros Studio Tours? Yes, please!)

Come tweet with us to share your ideas and get inspired with activities and challenges from The Holiday Makers – an activity-based campaign that’s calling on kids to get making this summer. Your child could even win prizes for their ideas!

The chat is sponsored by The Year of Engineering, a Government initiative created to inspire more young people to consider engineering careers by discovering the amazing engineering all around them, and highlighting the skills and interests that make children natural engineers.

Come, join the conversation and tweet us on Thursday 19 July from 13:00 – 14:00 BST and you could win 1 of 10 £25 shopping vouchers just for taking part!
