If you are on a budget it can be difficult to think of activities to do. Not just this bank holiday period but in general. Below I’ve come up with a few ideas for you. I hope you enjoy them.
Go Walking & Collect Leaves
Walking is good for you and the fresh air is also great. The leaves are starting to fall from the trees so it’s the beset time to get your children to collect leaves when you are out. When you get home you can the get them to lay the leaves underneath paper and get them to rub a crayon over the top. I love putting leave drawers up in the kitchen especially as we head in to autumn.
The stars are amazing. Use your phone and download a star chart map. Then choose your spot in your garden and show your children the stars. The app will help you identify the constellations. Do this before you put your children to bed and they will indeed have sweet dreams!
Cooking & Baking
Get the children cooking and baking. Choose easy recipes such as Rice Krispie buns, butterfly buns or indeed pizza. Kids love cooking. You just have to be prepared for them to mess the place up but everyone will have great fun so it is worth it.
Share your favourite Old Movies
This is something we do all the time. A lot of classic movies are ideal for watching with your children such as Laurel and Hardy or the musicals. Sit down with some popcorn and have a laugh together and sing together with these fabulous movies.
Riding a Bike
Riding a bike is something that all children should know how to do. It is like a rite of passage as riding a bike develops strength, balance and increases fitness too. Most of all it’s a great way to have fun with the whole family. If you are looking for a bike for the first time or your child has outgrown their current one you should make sure you are getting the best bike bargains to keep your costs low.
