Indoor Fun For All
1. Board game session
Board games have a typical reputation of being old fashioned fun, yet many games have been enjoying a renaissance in recent years. With many new additions to add to the inventory, there are now board games in abundance. A particular favourite of mine being Ticket To Ride, which is a cross-country train adventure in which players collect train tickets and complete journeys, providing hours of fun for all the family.
2. Create a memory box
There’s no better time to indulge your children in a bit of creative fun than half term – this activity is sure to keep them entertained for hours! Fish out old photographs and memorabilia, reciting stories as you go.
3. A teddy bears indoor picnic
Let your children’s imagination go wild with writing invitations to their childhood toys and make a pass-the-parcel to be enjoyed alongside finger sandwiches and bite size snacks.
4. An early Pancake Day
Treat your children to a lazy half term breakfast and a premature Pancake Day with this easy and child-friendly recipe! Try adding blueberries into the mixture for a fruity kick and one of your five-a-day. Whether you like yours tart with citrus fruits or sweet with smooth Nutella, allow the kids to help whip up this quick and simple recipe to create a breakfast of champions!
5. Movie day
It may be raining and close to zero degrees outside, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the half term holidays! Have a back-to-back movie-thon one afternoon, getting cosy on the sofa underneath fluffy throws surround by plump pillows, accompanied by lots of sweet treats.
