Spring into half term
Monday, May 22nd, 2017 | Posted in Blog
Its half term for many schools next week, so now is the time to organise the week so the kids get a combination of rest and relaxation, and encourage them to try something new but most of all have FUN! Whatever the weather, organised in advance or spontaneously – here is just some of the many things on offer for children next week – to suit every budget!
To start the week with some high-energy activities – check out Better Leisure facilities – you are sure to find something to entertain the children – even if they are not the active type! From swimming – lessons and pool inflatables, through to organised activities like arts and crafts, just pop onto their website for your nearest centre – there are over 250 around the country! Please check prices as they can vary.
Maybe a day out to a local park or the beach for a picnic – weather permitting, of course. Pack some fun outdoor games and a picnic lunch – all their favourites foods will somehow taste even better outdoors!
Many of the big cinema groups have offers on that will make a visit tempting, especially if the weather turns cool. Check out MyVue cinema tickets for kids aged 2 to 12 years-old as part of the ‘mini mornings scheme’ that runs each Saturday and Sunday morning from 10am, plus every day in the school holidays (with availability likely to change depending on when your child’s holidays occur). Simply purchase a £2.49 Mini Mornings ticket – same price for both adults and kids – and you will receive an email with the voucher, valid for redemption from 10th March – 30th October 2017, excluding 19th August – 3rd September 2017.
Cineworld also have cheap tickets for kids on selected screenings over the school holidays – and tickets are priced from around £2 per child. You will need to register your details with mycineworld and sign up to receive exclusive film time emails, news and offers. Check out what is on where and when.
Fun at home
Just spending time with the kids at home can be a special time. You could curl up with a TV movie or some board games, make homemade pizzas or bake a cake. Or if you have a garden you and the children can plant some seeds and start to grow your own vegetables. Even if you don’t have a garden reuse some pots or a bowl as planters and grow them on a windowsill.
Whatever you do – it doesn’t have to be costly but with a little advance planning, you and the children can make the most of your time together!
