With the kids off for the week, it’s the perfect time to get the whole family together and squeeze in as much fun and adventure as possible!
Sometimes it can be hard thinking of ways to keep not just the kids entertained, but the adults too. It’s important to get that blissful balance so all the family can enjoy what the holidays are all about, making memories.
Thankfully, we’ve put together a handy guide to keep the kids out of mischief this half term, all of which are available with a One4all Gift Card, so you can focus on the quality time you and your kids deserve.
A book is an amazing, inexpensive way to nurture your child’s imagination, allowing them to submerge themselves into mystic adventures and otherworldly characters. If you’re planning a road trip this half term, Vetman and His Bionic Animal Clan, which is available at WHSmith’s, is bound to keep them engaged during those long car journeys. You could even put your acting skills to the test when it comes to a bedtime reading after a fun filled day of adventure!

February is the perfect month to make a day of it at the cinema, escaping those wet, windy days through the magical lens of the silver screen! The Odeon have a magnificent range of films to choose from, such as Sing 2 which is bound to create smiling faces. The cinema is a fantastic excuse to get those after school friends together and treat them to a box of their favourite popcorn, whether sweet, salty, or why not both? Going to the cinema is the best excuse to get out of the house for a few hours, allowing you to get that much needed peace and quiet.
Why not use the time off to encourage your little ones to learn a new skill. They’ll be eager to get back to the playground in no time to let their friends know that they’ve learnt to sing, paint or even cycle! The Pedal Pals Bike from Argos is an ideal companion for biking beginners. Enjoy everything nature has to offer and embark on a family bike ride, allowing them to enjoy every splash while you explore the local countryside and see what your doorstep has to offer, making lasting memories throughout!
