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 appLearn 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.

 

 

Baking - half term activities

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.

 

 

Saving the planet Save the planet

Watch David Attenborough’s important documentary and create your household action plan for how you can help save the planet.

 

 

Move together - half term activities Move together

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.

 

 

Treasure hunt 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.

 

 

Kids club - half term activities 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.

 

 

Grow somethingGrow something

It’s always a good time to grow herbs indoors or check out what vegetables you can grow in February here.
