If you are a parent who wants to find inexpensive or free ways to entertain your kids during half term holidays, look no further than our boredom busting blog as we have a few ideas that you’re bound to find useful!
You can start by searching for free events in your area online or in local newspapers.
Community centres may have special holiday events that children can attend and take part in. Shopping centres could also have entertainment scheduled in especially for kids.
What about encouraging budding artists with a trip to an art gallery? You could also bring some art materials and ask them to copy their favourite painting so you can make your own gallery at home.
If your son or daughter loves story writing or you think they’ve got what it takes to be the next J.K. Rowling, use your imaginations to write a story together. The story doesn’t even have to be original - you could rewrite one you both love or write a short story using several characters from different fairytales.
Scavenger hunts are another fun way to keep your kids busy without spending lots of money. Simply come up with clues and interesting items to hide around the house or your garden and give the winner a treat.
