Half term passed by in a flash as usual, we didn’t even do a huge amount. I find the February half term the hardest as the weather is often rubbish and I generally struggle a little bit on day trips out with all three children myself so tend to stay close to home and meet friends on make our own entertainment.
Top tips for keeping busy in school holidays
- Have a stash of craft items ready for a ‘making’ session.
- Make your own play dough, we had lots of fun with out pirate themed play dough last week.
- Create some games in the garden. We made different types of pirate ships and raced them down half pipes.
- Make an indoor den.
- Bake some cakes, or how about a giant cookie?
- Go for a rainy walk.

It is so hard when they are copped up indoors because if bad weather but some great ideas. My two are HUGE fans of den-making. So simple but can keep them amused for ages!

Baking and den building are our rainy day, school holiday activities
Heck I struggle to get two kids out of the house on my own – the thought of managing with three fills me with dread! This half term though we just embraced the outdoors and spent as much time as possible outside – as we say in Yorkshire “no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing”!
I now want a cookie on a stick for breakfast!
Great tips, I find half term always goes in a flash, we cram so much in it’s over before we start and I hate that! I think it’s also good to allow some downtime for cuddles and good films

Yes we did lots of baking, walking, crafting and scooting. The usual suspects really do work. Mich x
