Get ready for Half-Term fun!

With May Half Term approaching you're probably thinking what can you do with the kids this school holiday? Well we've got you covered with 10 activities that you and your kids can enjoy together come rain or shine! 

1. Grow some Sunflowers! 🌻

Children of all ages can get involved with gardening, and it’s a great way to teach some patience. Sunflowers can be planted from April to June, and the rate at which they grow makes them perfect for the little ones to enjoy. All you need is a pack of seeds, compost, and a watering can. Check out this guide.

2. Visit a local landmark 🏰

Why not discover your local landmarks. Visit a castle or museum together or simply go on a family walk and explore the area you live in. Make sure you pack a Summer Hat to keep those little ones protected!

3. Go to the beach! 🏖️

Now that Summer is just around the corner, it's the perfect time to get a trip to the coast planned. With a large range of beautiful beaches to choose from in the UK the kids can have fun splashing in the sea, building sandcastles, playing beach games and enjoy a picnic! Our Sun Hats include a smart design to protect young skin from harsh UVA +UVB rays to factor 50+. Shop Now.

4. Visit a farm 🐷

With plenty of farms across the UK there is sure to be one nearby. As well as offering the chance to spend more time outdoors it is a wonderful day out and brilliant for children of all ages. Farms are also perfect for educational purposes and can also include sensory opportunities.

5. Blow giant bubbles! 😗

Bubbles are a huge hit with children of all ages, but especially the younger kids. Chasing them around the garden is the perfect way to get them outdoors and moving around. You can also make your own bubble mix by simply using washing up liquid!

6. Pond dipping 🦋

Ponds are fascinating for children, they offer various wildlife all throughout the year. Ponds are excellent for introducing nature to children and allowing them to connect with different types of creatures that may be swimming in the water.

7. Go camping! 🏕️

Sleeping under the stars in a tent is an exciting adventure for the whole family, especially for the children! Find a family-friendly campsite near you that can offer a stay filled with adventure, family fun, and stargazing!

8. Enjoy a family picnic! 🍓

Is there anything better than a family picnic on a sunny day in May? Make the process even more enjoyable by getting them to help with the food preparation and packing the picnic basket! Now all you need to do is find the perfect picnic spot! 

9. Bird watching 🐦

Bird watching is a great way to get the kids interacting with nature. They will love trying to work out which birds they can hear and spot. You can do this on a family walk or from the comfort of your own garden. Keep the sun out of yours and the little ones eyes with our range of Sun Hats.

10. Go on a long walk 🍃

Last but certainly not least, go on a long walk! Half-Term is the perfect time to incorporate a big family walk into your schedule. They can bring their bikes, scooters or simply just walk together. Plan your route as a family and don't forget the snacks!

We hope you have a lovely Bank Holiday weekend and Half-Term filled with fun, adventures and family time!
