Half term is a great opportunity to head out and create some fun memories for the whole family. It could be day trips around your local area or short breaks a little further afield. Staying at home can also be great fun with activities to encourage the kids to try out new hobbies, learn to bake and so on. Just a couple of weeks ago we shared some ideas for National Walking Month that would be great for half term activities. Why not try these out too?
Cycling holidays for less
Cycling trips are a terrific way for the family to spend quality, active time together. It is also an enjoyable way to explore your own neighbourhood. British Cycling tells you how to get started, shows you where you can find events close to you, how to become a member of a cycling club and more. For cycling related purchases, Evans Cycles currently has a clearance sale on clothing, shoes and helmets, up to £100 off selected bikes and many other deals. Competitive bikers or expert level cyclists may also want to check out current offers from ProBikeKit on wheels, spares and more.
Fun days out
Kids always enjoy visiting amusement parks and zoos – check out these great suggestions that will help you do just that without costing you a fortune. Lightwater Valley is currently offering up to 25% discount on park tickets, Longleat has reductions on all-in-one day tickets, and London Zoo has reductions of 25% on group tickets, 20% off annual memberships and free admissions for children below three right now! Take a peek at all the Zoo vouchers (Chester Zoo, Bristol Zoo, Colchester Zoo, Blackpool Zoo, South Lakes Safari and many others) to see the deals close to you.
Get your hands dirty
Get stuck in with baking, gardening or a craft to keep the kids engaged and creatively occupied. Check out current Sainsbury’s offers, such as new customer offers, £20 off grocery deals, discounts on 12 month delivery savers and more to stock up on those kitchen essentials. Ocado currently has 50% off selected products, reductions on selected carts, plus free delivery offers. Also be sure to check out Hobbycraft and Loveknitting to introduce your child to an array of creativity.
Music, games and movie deals
Parents need a break during half term too, so there’s no harm in checking out the latest deals in electronics. Amazon currently offers up to 30% off selected computers and accessories, 89% off daily deals and about 6,000 free kids’ books. BBC Store currently offers up to 50% off for new customers. There are also flat discounts, free gift offers and other promotions at Zavvi and great offers on toys, gifts and gadgets at Rakuten.co.uk.
