Half term is upon us, and and the weather forecast is a bit of mixed bag. So, what can we do to keep the family entertained for a week, while the teacher take a well-earned breather?
If the outlook is fine, and you are lucky enough to live near the coast, grab a bucket and spade, put on your wetsuits and head to the beach. I love the seaside but I live about as far away from one as you can possibly get in England. I do also like a nice woodland stroll and the National Forest is on my doorstep. Over the school holidays there always seems to be great activities on for the kids, have a look at the events page and see if there’s something on near you.
If it’s wet, many local cinemas offer cheap children’s specials, or, head to your local museum. I’ve been supporting the campaign for Snibston Discovery Museum to be saved from closure and finally, there is some hope that the decision by Leicestershire County Council could be reversed. If you’ve not been, its an excellent day out, so why not make the most of it and show it some support, just in case the closure decision is upheld.
You don’t have to go far from home though, grab some rocks and paint positive messages for people to find and deposit them around you local area. I love a day out geocaching, it’s great for both humans and our dog.
Then in the evening, when your small people are tucked up safely in bed, settle down with a new book or have a gamble with some online casino slots. It might help you unwind after an exciting day adventuring with your children.
I’m looking forward to an alarm-clock free week and nice relaxed bedtimes. What will you be doing?
