Four Fun Holiday Activities For The Kids (And You!)

The Easter and summer holidays are not too far away so I’ve been doing some research on fun things that my family and I can do during the time off. Looking at the list I’ve come up with so far, I must admit, I’m more excited about our planned activities than the kids are!

If you are searching for holiday activity inspiration, have a look at what we’ve got in store for the break and hopefully there are a few ideas that take your fancy too.


1. Sports day

Yup, we are going to host a mini sports day in our back garden! Complete with those old, but always enjoyable, games: the egg and spoon race, the sack race, the three-legged race, etc. Not only do I think the kids will love this one, but I’m sure it is going to make me fondly reminisce about my childhood. It’s also going to be really easy to organise. You just need a few props and plenty of enthusiasm! We might save this activity for when the kids have their school friends over, or we may combine it with an extended family barbeque to make it a proper occasion.

2. Movie day

Because of the unpredictable climate we live in, it’s always a good idea to plan activities for those inevitable rainy days. One of said activities is a movie marathon. We will pick a film franchise and watch them all from start to finish. We haven’t chosen which films to watch yet, but it’s looking like it will be Madagascar series. The movie day will not be complete without some popcorn and pizza.


3. Adventure day out

I love organising days out for kids. They get so excited; the feeling is infectious! We haven’t quite decided where to go yet, however, a theme park, a beach, a museum or a city bus tour are at the top of our list. These kind of activities are great to do when you can. They can be enjoyable, educational and memorable all at once. Travelling on your day out doesn’t have to stressful. I have found that if you pack the car with plenty of water and snacks and prepare some car games, the journey can be one of the best parts of these days out.

4. Arts and crafts day

No school holiday would be complete without an arts and crafts day. Because my kids love a bit of outdoor messy play, I tend to set up all our art and craft materials on a table outside and let them go wild. This way you don’t have to worry about spills, stains or dirty hand prints on your walls. A little trick I’ve learnt to stop them getting bored of this activity quickly; give them a project to work on. This could be anything from making a birthday card for a relative or painting eggs for Easter.

I hope you have found one or more ideas in this list helpful for your holiday plans. If you have any ideas to add, please let me know in the comments.
