So you and the kids have finally got a break from 6 long weeks of home schooling with a whole week or two off.
The big question is what to do with the kids now?
You might usually spend the Feb half term enjoying farms, zoos, soft play centres, trampoline parks and museums. However as we know, unfortunately these aren’t options in lockdown. Are you looking for some half term activities ideas to do with the kids at home?
We’ve asked around and have come up with some cool things to get up to at half term with the kids:
Learn a new app together
Find something you’ve been meaning to learn and get your kids to teach you how to use it – whether it’s Instagram, Snapchat or Minecraft you might be surprised how keen they are to share their knowledge.
Bake a structure
We know that baking has got a bit ‘old’ as an activity but how about stretching your imagination and baking a structure from gingerbread or salt dough.
Save the planet
Watch David Attenborough’s important documentary and create your household action plan for how you can help save the planet.
Set a daily challenge for some kind of exercise. Pick a number of steps, no of skips, how long you can balance, cycling. Whatever your thing is, build a target to motivate everyone to get involved.
Search for treasure
Create your own treasure hunt. There’s loads of ideas online. You could research your town and set clues up for a route or, more simply, set up clues and treasure around the house or garden.
Start a kids club
If you have mixed aged kids at home, see if the eldest wants to run a kids club for an hour or two. Give them some ideas and maybe a budget for small things. Let them design activities for their siblings and give you a break for a few hours.
