June is almost here, and in Wales, the first week of the month kicks off with half term. Yay! OK, we’re still in May on the Monday, but it’s a Bank Holiday, so double ‘yay’!
So what are your plans for the bank holiday or half term? Have you booked somewhere to stay? Self-catering? Camping? Glamping? If you’re planning to stay at home, there’s still plenty of fun stuff to do…
Half term humdrum?
Here are a few little ideas to keep the kids occupied – on top of taking them to the recently opened cinemas, bowling alleys, indoor-play areas and museums etc. of course!
Get them in the kitchen. Following a recipe is a great way to get the kids involved and focused on something productive. Exploring new words and learning how to follow a recipe will not only increase their vocabulary but maths skills too. They’ll also learn how different ingredients alter through the process of cooking – great for a sensory experience.
