We’re now well into October, and that means only one thing. It will soon be half term for the kids! This is something that many parents worry about. No one wants to have to deal with bored kids for a whole week! So to ensure your little ones don’t get too bored, here are some fantastic ideas for half term activities.
Half Term Ideas To Keep The Kids Occupied
Family Days Out
After you have been to a few local attractions, you may start to find it hard to think of day out ideas. But if you put a bit of extra thought into it, you will certainly be able to come up with some exciting plans! Why not head to your nearest theme park so the kids can use up their energy running from roller coaster to roller coaster? Or how about visiting your local zoo? Kids love getting face to face with exotic creatures! If you don’t have much of a budget for days out, you can simply spend the day with a football in your local park!
Visit The Family
When was the last time your kids saw some of their relatives? If you rarely find the time to visit grandparents, aunts, and uncles, then make sure you make some this half term. I’m sure the kids will love it just as much as everyone else! If your relatives live quite far away, you could always turn it into a night away. That way, the kids will feel like they have been on a mini holiday.
Get Creative At Home
One of the best ways to spend a rainy day in half term is to get creative with some artistic activities. If your kids are keen bakers, then you could spend some time making cakes and biscuits in your kitchen. Another great idea is to get the kids to look out the window and paint what they see in the garden. If the weather isn’t so bad, take them outside to paint individual flowers and plants. You could spend a day helping the kids to make some superhero costumes. They can invent their own or try and recreate their favourite Marvel character! If you’re brave enough, place a big sheet of paper down on the floor and get the paints out.
Some days, it is nice just to get snuggled up on the sofa in front of your favourite movies. You may feel like doing this during October half-term, especially if the weather isn’t so great! Thanks to online streaming services such as Netflix, you can now watch a variety of films and TV shows whenever you want. And there are many that are suitable for children of all ages. So get snuggled up with your clan on the sofa and enjoy a lazy day indoors. Don’t forget plenty of snacks in so you can enjoy them throughout the film! If you want to watch a streamed film on your TV, you will need to buy a device like a Chromecast. This allows you to watch something that is being streamed on your laptop or device, on your TV. So you don’t have to huddle around a tiny screen!
What have you got planned for this half term?
