Keeping the Kids Happy this Summer Holiday

The summer holidays are nearly upon us, and parents across the country are preparing themselves for a manic 6 weeks during which they will have to entertain their little ones in an attempt to avoid pandemonium breaking loose. We at TopCashBack are bracing ourselves for the coming months and have compiled a list of great ways to keep the kids busy while you get a bit of peace in the sun.

Family days out

One of the best ways to keep the kids happy is to take them on a grand day out full of thrills and excitement. Now, there’s no need to spend a fortune on entrance fees so long as you’re on the lookout for offers. Be twice as savvy and earn cashback on your days out too.


A great way to entertain the kids is to visit an aquarium, particularly on a rainy day, and check out some of the world’s most interesting, intriguing and weird sea creatures. Get your hands involved and touch some rays, feed some giant turtles and, if you’re brave enough, pick up a spider crab. This is a day out the kids will love, and they’ll learn something about our nautical friends too.

Sea Life has centres across the UK and if you order your tickets online you can save 20% off ticket prices and get cashback too!

For those living on the South Coast it pays to check out The Oceanarium and save 20% off tickets when you order online.


Everyone should visit the Science Museum this summer holiday; it is a fantastic day out for kids and adults alike. We’re mostly chuffed if we learn one new thing a day but if you head to the Science Museum you’ll come out with a whole load of new and interesting facts to reel off for days to come! There’s no reason not to be put off because entry is free of charge.

There’s so much to see and do in the Science Museum that you can easily spend most of the day there. But if you’re in the area for the weekend you should definitely come back the following day and visit The National History Museum. The moment you enter and are confronted by the skeleton of the huge Diplodocus you’ll be enthralled! So take a step back in time and remember that this is a trip for both you and your kids!

Kellogg’s are currently offering a great summer holiday deal – Grown-Ups Go Free. For every kids or adult ticket that’s bought, you’ll also get one free adult entry. All you have to do is purchase one of their promotional packs of cereal, cut out the voucher and head to one the participating attractions. There are over 40 theme parks you can visit, ranging from Legoland in Windsor to Alton Towers near Stoke-on-Trent.

Kids eat free/cheap this summer holiday

No doubt you’ve been earning money on your food shopping with our cashback deals, so on one of your fun days out with the little’uns this summer holiday, why not head out for a slap up meal! Treat them to one of their favourite meals without spending the earth with our top tips on grabbing food for a discount.

Crown Carveries

There are only two things you should be doing on a Sunday - relaxing and eating a roast - and one thing that can prevent you from relaxing is the actual cooking it! So why not take all the stress out of it and head to Crown Carveries and get a kid’s roast free when an adult orders one.


If you’re stuck for options and need to get the kids out of the house, take them on your weekly shop to Morrisons! Once you’ve finished your shop head to the café for a late afternoon snack. For every main meal bought, you get a free children’s meal!

Slug and Lettuce

Another bargain meal for your offspring can be found at the Slug and Lettuce where kids eat for £1 on Sundays. It’s cheaper than cooking a meal at home!

So, there we have it – our top guide to keeping the kids happy over the summer holidays. There are plenty of options for cheap days out that are both fun and educational. And after a busy day out you can take them for a delicious meal that won’t break the bank and leave you with a huge pile of dishes.
