What to do this February Half Term

family

What to do over half term can sometimes fill parents with dread and anxiety. We can assure you there is no need to panic though. We have put together a few ideas to try and give you a little bit of inspiration of the type of things you can do to keep your mini-you entertained.

Get Out and About

Just because your darling small people aren’t at school doesn’t mean they can’t still be learning. There are many fabulous museums that will help your youngsters discover something new without even realising. Gone are the days of boring, quiet museums. You can become a pirate on a ship, make your hair stand on end or visit a castle and be crowned king. There are so many interesting and interactive places that even your older moody teenagers will pick up a little. Check out the cashback deals you can get here.

If the hyperactive sugar filled sleepovers are sending the little dears to skyrocket, as if they were Bugs Bunny and the Tazmanian Devil locked in a space hopper, pogo stick and merry-go-round triathlon, then why not consider a few outdoor adventures. If the weather permits then why not take a nice trip to a theme park, get back to nature by going to a petting zoo or why not visit an escape room and pray they won’t get locked in, at least not forever. We have a number of latest cashback deals here to make your money go around further.

The Big Screen Adventure

A great day out that will tend to keep tykes of all ages quiet and happy is a good old fashioned family cinema day. Why pay full price though? Check out where you can save with some cashback here. There are lots of great movies coming out this half term. Why not have a look at “A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood”, a heart-warming tale based on a true story of and interview with Fred Rogers. This lovely tale will help bring kindness to the forefront of the family and hopefully cause for a lovely half term. Little ones will be excited to see “The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle” an action filled new take on Dr. John Dolitte who can talk to animals. Another firm family favourite is bound to be the re-mastered “Sonic the Hedgehog”. They listened to the complaints about the computer graphics and made amendments so Sonic lovers of old and new are bound to fall in love with the classic game character.

 

Fill their Stomachs

TopCashBack, I hear you cry… what do we do with the offspring when we are at home? Don’t fear there are lots of things that can be done around the house; plus teaching them to clean up is always good practice for you not having to lift a finger in housework.

Cooking sessions are a great way to go! You can all get involved in making pizza for tea, no bake snack bars throughout the day and try their hands at baking different types of bread. The kitchen shows no limits so whilst supervision is key, you still get to reap the rewards when it comes to tasting. Find cashback on all your ingredients needed here.

Time to Get Creative

Getting crafty is always a treat, there is nothing the munchkins like more than getting messy with art materials. It can be so easy too.

Why not try making a bird feeder out of an orange! You only need one orange for two feeders. Simply cut it in half scoop out the insides, so the wee ones also get a mushy healthy treat! Pierce some holes in either side of each orange half and attach string. Then mix together birdseed and lard, pop it in the orange and hang up the feeder. You get some peace and quiet whilst they wait for the birds and wildlife to come along and feast on their hard work.

All small fry’s love to paint surely, but why let them have all the fun. Introduce cork painting to them, paint a background such as a tree bark and use a wine cork bottle dipped in paint to make up the rest of the picture, like the leaves. This will entertain them no end and look great on the fridge whilst you are having a well-earned glass of wine from out of it. There is cashback available on all the resources you will need to recreate these ideas or any of your own here.

We have tried to give you at least a few ideas to do things this half term, but if you have any more then please do feel free to share the knowledge. We genuinely hope you have the loveliest time and look forward to hearing all your stories.
