Itís half term again! Kids want to go outside and roam free! It may not be the summer holidays just yet, but there are still plenty of outdoor activities the whole family can enjoy on the half term break!
The National Trust often put on some great half term activity days with lots of projects, walks and museums to go and explore! There are National Trust parks, houses, museums and castles everywhere so there will never be an interesting place to explore too far away!
Go Ape! Is another great way to spend a day out doors with the kids. Go Ape! Is the UKís number one forest adventure. Experience massive zip wires, Tarzan swings or even a forest Segway tour! There are plenty of options for half term, and they can cater for all children taller than 1m. It is a great way to get some exercise, fresh air and to spend quality time as a family.
There are loads of free local events on during half term that are specifically focused on keeping kids active and happy. A great example is right here in York Ė The Viking Festival. It is on all week with a wide range of activities for all ages and even has a finale event on Saturday!
If you want to keep it simple, one of the best ways to spend time outdoors during February half term is to go for a long cycle with children. It is a great way to see some wildlife, keep the kids active and to keep yourself active too! There are plenty of cycle routes across the UK so you will never be too far from one! Usually large forests or cycle routes have cafes or small restaurants to grab a bit to eatÖso why not make a day of it!
Finally donít forget your local museums. Although you may have visited the local museums a lot of times with your kids already, during February half term most local attractions put on extra events, some even allow the parents to go and have a coffee or go shopping whilst the children enjoy a few hours of arts and crafts, science or history!
