Looking for something fun to do this half term? Check out this great list of suggestions below!
Colouring in! An oldie but a goodie. Keeps my girls entertained for hours and I even join them as it is very relaxing. www.allaboutamummy.co.uk
Build forts out of couch cushions, have a movie marathon, go on an “adventure” like a treasure hunt with a checklist of things to find 😊
Buy some glow sticks and have an indoor dance party. Perfect for those rainy days!
We’ll be spending some of our time cooking together. Pancakes for Pancake Day and attempting to make some Chinese food to celebrate Chinese New Year. Fortunately, my kids are much better at preparing food than me!
Jigsaws – especially 3D ones … http://www.myboysclub.co.uk/2018/02/big-ben-3d-ravensburger-jigsaw-puzzle.html
Find a new place to explore – country parks, forests, woods – and do your own nature trail, take a picnic and have fun! Http://passtheproseccoplease.co.uk
We love moutain walks and we take the camp stove find a nice spot and have a hot meal for lunch like beans on toast or scrambled egg to warm up , the kids love it www.anklebitersadventures.co.uk
Visit the beach! The coast can be a fabulous day out all year round! Wrap up in warm clothing and wellies and splash in the sea or climb up to the top of the Sandhills and feel like you’re on top of the world! http://www.mymummyspennies.com
You can use your bath or something like this. Get your little ones to bath their dolls. It’s a lot of splashing around and they’re bound to have fun!
Make a different smoothie for everyday of the week. They are quick to make if you have a nutribullet. A normal blender should work well too! Add lots of fruit and veg. A lovely healthy treat! I usually head to Pinterest when looking for smoothie recipes.
Everything in the photo was from Poundland of Hobbycraft.
Plastic table cover – minimises mess – £1
Apron – again minimises messy clothes but I would suggest wearing something old anyway. £1 Poundland or Poundworld (sorry can’t remember which one)
Paints – from Hobbycraft for £1. You can also get paint from Poundland too!
Paintbrushes- are from HobbyCraft. I don’t remember the exact price but they were definitely under £2. Again you can get paint brushes from Poundland.
Looking for a free day out? Sky Garden is the place to go.
What’s is it?
A rooftop garden with a restaurant. There’s also the lovely view of London.
You can book tickets here. They’re released every Monday.
