Ways to keep kids occupied this upcoming May Half Term

Anyone else feel like the Half Term has just crept up on us again? We do. That’s why we’ve put together a few more tips to help keep the kids busy.

Take them out

We know you can’t always depend on the British Weather, but with June on the horizon, we’re hoping that it’s going to get a little bit warmer. Make the most of the warmer days and get the kids out. We’re thinking local parks, a walk to dust off the cobwebs and then a trip to the centre for a little gift that will keep them busy when you get home…

Bake it up

Nothing beats a cake-making day with little ones, so embrace the Half Term and your inner baker. Start off with simple biscuits that they can spend hours icing, or, fake it with a baking kit that you can buy in the centre. You’re welcome.

Have a movie day

Sometimes, all kids want to do is relax and watch movies. Set up a movie day at home with some of their favourite films, snacks, and blankets to snuggle up in. You can also make it a themed movie day by selecting movies that relate to a certain topic, such as adventure or animals. To make it more interactive, you can even create a simple scavenger hunt or quiz based on the movies. It’s a great way to unwind and spend some quality time together. Make sure to stop off at the centre for decorations and snacks!

Half Term can be a fun and exciting time for both kids and parents, but it can also be challenging to keep little ones occupied. However, with these tips, you can make the most of the break and create lasting memories with your children. Whether you choose to get outdoors, bake some treats, or have a movie day, the most important thing is to spend quality time with your family and enjoy the time off together.
