Half the term…twice the fun!

Posted on

With half-term just around the corner, we thought we’d share a few of our favourite fun ideas guaranteed to help keep the kids entertained.


ice skating

Ice, ice baby

Why not wrap up warm, swap your shoes for blades and go ice skating?  Most ice rinks offer family sessions with skate hire inclusive.  Some even have disco options if you fancying pulling a few moves on the ice with night time skating…..time to unleash the inner Torvill or Dean and show the kids how its done?!

for play

BYOB game party!

A what party I hear you say?  Bring your own board game!  If the weather takes a turn for the worse then why not invite a few friends over but they have to bring their own board games.  No more “I’m bored of my board games!” as the kids can try something new.  Chuck in some popcorn and maybe even create a tournament style leaderboard and you’ve got yourself a house full of entertained kids (and hopefully some well deserved peace and quiet!).




Not too cool for the pool

Swimming is a great way to have fun as a family as well as keep active and practise those all important life-saving skills.  Why not see what’s going on this half term at your local leisure centre or health club, many will offer family fun sessions for that extra splash factor.  Find your nearest pool with this handy pool finder and check out some of these great games to play whilst in the water.



After dusk frolics

Make the most of these dark nights whilst they’re here, wrap up warm, grab a flashlight and explore your neighbourhood after dusk.  With a YUUbag on their backs they can stay safe thanks to the reflectivity panels on the front and back so why not fill up their YUUbag with some snacks and glow sticks and let their imaginations run wild.  Check out these fun ideas for games in the dark.





Get your Geocache on!

This is such a fun family activity that enables your young explorer to discover new and exciting surroundings in your local area.  If you’re new to the world of geocaching this website gives a great overview to help get you started.
