Warburtons Half & Half and Olympic triathletes and brothers Jonathan and Alistair Brownlee have come up with a half term pack for kids, and sent one to the Feeding Boys household for us to try.
The pack was stuffed with things to entertain the boys this holiday – including the brothers’ top 20 ideas to get kids out and active, a family ticket to a local attraction, aeroplane kits, marbles, water balloons, as well as Warburtons coupons to help keep the kids fuelled throughout the week.
We’ve been up in Northumberland with the grandparents so made the most of being outdoors and made our way through most of the suggested list of activities:
- Build your own assault course
- Bob for apples
- Play hide and seek in the great outdoors
- Play Pooh Sticks
- Build paper aeroplanes and see whose can go the furthest
- Have a pogo stick race
- Have a tug of war
- Make a tree house
- Have a breakdancing competition
- Get on your bike
It’s not always easy to prise the kids away from screens, but they always have far more fun racing around outdoors working up an appetite for the next round of hot chocolates.
Also included in the kit was a family ticket to Alnwick Castle and Gardens which really was the highlight of our time away. Sam and Arlo were delighted to be going to “Hogwarts” and it totally lived up to their expectations.
Dressing up as knights, meeting a dragon, potion lessons, taking a broomstick flying course were just a few of the things the boys got up to. If you’re ever up in Northumberland i’d definitely put this attraction on your list as we were bowled over by how many activities were laid on for the kids. It’s pricey to get in but you come away feeling like it’s value for money.
Once you’ve bought a ticket for the castle it’s valid for 12 months, so you can go back multiple times. We all thought this was brilliant, as there’s so much to see you could easily keep going back and not get bored.
How have you kept the kids active this half term?
