3 half term breaks and activities

Need some inspiration on what to do with the kids this February half term? It may seem like only yesterday that the kids were running around the living room, Christmas presents flying everywhere as you searched your drawers for two AA batteries. But, alas, you now have to keep them occupied again, and without the carrot of Crimbo-based bribery.

Have no fear! There are loads of activities you can enjoy with the kids (big and small) during February half-term (Monday 13th February – Sunday 19th February 2017).

Here’s 3 half-term picks for the whole family from across the UK.

1. Imagine Festival, South Bank, London

This annual event, suitable for kids under 12, celebrates the power of the imagination. With eleven days full of jam-packed fun, it gives kids the chance to hear some of their favourite authors, take part in family-friendly performances and explore their creative side in fun workshops. Runs from the 09th- 19th February 2017.

Why not book a room in a London Travelodge and make a weekend of it?

2. Midlands Arts Centre – MAC

Help your kids get creative at one of the UK’s most popular art centres. At MAC you’ll find loads of things to do and explore this half term, including studios for pottery, jewellery, painting, textiles, and sculpture, as well as two theatres, music rooms, a cinema, and a bar and café. There are fantastic workshops for all ages, making MAC a great place to visit with all the family. Just have a look on the MAC website to get some inspiration, and get those creative juices flowing!

3. National Space Centre, Leicester

Blast off this February at the National Space Centre in Leicester and keep your little astronauts occupied. Perfect for rainy days (which could be useful in February) this interactive cosmic tour will be a hit for kids (and adults) of all ages. Why not explore the Rocket Tower, or immerse yourself in one of the award-winning planetarium shows? And that’s just the start of it.
