Directory of Sanity Saving Summer Holiday Ideas from Go Walkabout

15 August 2014

Misc Places to Visit Special Events

We have reached the half-way point in the school Summer holidays, and for many of us – our funds may be dwindling, the weather has taken a decidedly Autumnal turn, and we’re running out of steam on the amusing ideas front!  With this in mind, we have compiled a directory of resources to give you more valuable ammunition in the constant battle to be prepared when boredom strikes! The resources we have collected together here, include printable activities, ideas for days out, ideas for fun crafts using things that you will hopefully have around the house, and of course, there are guides to creating different designs using the ubiquitous loom bands.

So, perhaps next time there is a rainy day or an unexpected gap in the holiday activity planner, why not test-drive one or more of the ideas included in the directory?

You may have come across another resource or activity online that you’d like to share with other parents as a great activity to have on stand-by.  Please let us know.  I’m sure lots of other parents will appreciate it! So if you have a ‘tried and tested’ link to something your kids loved, or if your kids have had a go any of the activities suggested here, we’d love to see a photo.  You can share these via our Facebook page or Twitter feed.

Also, don’t miss out on wining a fantastic waterproof Panasonic Lumix camera or £20 Snapfish vouchers by entering our fun photo competition.  If you’ve got an amusing photograph taken whilst on holiday or on a day out, share it with us and the most amusing photo/caption combinations will win the prizes above.  Find out more details about how to enter below, get your skates on as the deadline is 31st August 2014.  You can see the entries so far in an album on our Facebook page too – have a browse through with the kids and see which ones tickle their funny bones!
