Things to do during the Summer holidays!

11th July 2017

The dreaded 5 week holiday is fast upon us and you can bet that the word bored will come up at some point during. It can be hard planning things to do with our children and it can also become quite costly. I have scoured the internet for things to do and have produced a list of things to do ranging in prices that the whole family will enjoy!

1. Longleat Safari Park.

our family absolutely loves Longleat, we go here numerous times a year and have never had a bad experience no matter how busy it is. There is so much to do here ranging from Safari drive through to boat trips to animal close encounters, they even have a traditional sweet shop. To make your day that little bit cheaper you can save up to 15% when you book online. To find out more click here.

2. Picnic in the park.

The sheer simplicity of this makes it an enjoyable experience by all. Take a trip to the park with other parent friends and if you all bring some food then it works out even cheaper. Kids love the freedom to run around no matter their age giving us parents valuable time to catch up on the latest gossip!


3. Cotswold Wildlife Park and gardens.

Every child loves animals and children of all ages love wildlife parks. There is plenty to do and see here and it can be as cheap or as expensive as you want. Children under 3 go free and you can also save money by booking online – the tickets are valued for a month from the date of purchase so if your plans suddenly change or the weather isn’t on your side you won’t be out of pocket.

4. Take a trip to the beach.

Beach trips are fun for all ages. It doesn’t have to be expensive and children will spend hours playing in the sand. Our country is far from short of beautiful beaches, from Southend to Weston-Super-Mare to Newquay which has gorgeously blue water. Grab your buckets and spades and go get the sand between your toes!

5. Go green fingered!

Youngsters love getting stuck in and what better way to encourage that than to take a shot at planting? Cress heads are a hit with everyone! Maybe even create a veggie patch? Dobbies garden centre are offering free workshops for 4-10 year olds in store every first Sunday of  the month which includes planting seeds and learning about nature. I think this is the perfect idea and I hope that they still do this next year when my little one turns 4! Click here to get more info.

Here are a few more ideas:

– Monkey world, Wareham

– National sea life centre, Birmingham

–  A trip to London

– Cotswold water park

– Go bowling

– Movie day

– Create a Volcano

– Bake

– Pets at home Pet workshop

I hope these give you a few ideas on how to tackle the dreaded School holidays and make it just that little bit bearable. Do you have any other ideas that are not in this list? Please leave them below!
