Half Term Fun Ideas: Top 3 Holiday Tips

Hope you are all enjoying the Easter holidays, it has been very busy at work so sadly I wasn’t able to take any time off.

The kids will be off for another week, so in case you are running out of ideas, I thought I would put together a little list with suggestions of tried and tested activities.

1. Crafting

Little man loves crafting, whenever we are home, he starts drawing, painting and crafting. For Valentine’s Day, we created cards with old petals.

You could use a similar idea to make cards out of Easter egg boxes and wrapping. If your house is anything like mine, you will still have lots of Easter eggs to go through. They would also be used to make cupcakes.

2. Baking

Over the weekend, we made a lovely Butterfly Chocolate Cupcake, it was very easy to make and very tasty too. As you can add your own filling, it is a versatile recipe and you can adapt it to suit your tastebuds.

If you fancy something different, you could make some lovely sweets made of dried powdered milk, or perhaps some Banana and Chocolate Mini-Muffins using leftover Easter eggs.

The Fruity Flapjack Bites make a perfect afternoon snack, they are made of oats and raisins for a healthy snack.

3. Family Day Out

We enjoy staying home but sightseeing is also lovely.

The British Library offers several London exhibitions and there is always something interesting to go and see. You could also check their events, tours and permanent galleries for a fun afternoon!

We have recently been to the London Transport Museum and it was a lot of fun. Little man enjoyed driving the buses and trains, perfect for train-mad kids!

Sea Life London Aquarium

We have also been to London Zoo and we had a very enjoyable family day out.

The zoo is quite big, so I would suggest arriving early and taking a packed lunch and snacks with you, so you can make the most out of your day.

Our latest visit was to Sea Life London Aquarium where little man went face-to-face to a shark.

He was so excited and even fell off from the bench. It all happened so quickly that he thought the shark would cross over the glass and get him. It was an unforgettable day!

Whatever you are up to, enjoy the rest of your Easter holiday!
