October half term parents survival guide


October half term parents survival guide

It’s that time again, half term is looming and the kids have already whipped themselves into an over excited frenzy at the thought of all the fun filled plans they think you have up your sleeve.  Well panic not, we will alleviate the stress of half term with our 5 day guide to beating the boredom.


Play dough making is a great activity that the kids will need little supervision with and they can become as creative as they wish. All you need is, 2 cups flour, 1 cup salt, 2 tbsp cream of tartar, 2 tbsp oil, colorings, 2 cups boiling water. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. Make a well in the center and add coloring. Pour in boiling water and mix. It will look like a goopy mess, let it sit for a few minutes to firm up. Take the dough out of the bowl and knead to form a ball.



Do you really need to go grocery shopping but dread taking the kids? Get them involved by asking them to pick their favorite ingredients for making fruity non-alcoholic cocktails that afternoon. To top the day off nicely, put the cocktails into these fun coloured glass drinks jars complete with a straw. Problem solved! Home Made Coloured Glass Drinks Jar with Straw 



Create the fun of the cinema at home. A family favorite film, a big bowl of cheesy nachos, hot dogs with all the toppings and a big bag of pick and mix. Add that extra touch by making tickets out of card board that the kids have to present to you before they enter the ‘cinema’.



Why not plan a Friday afternoon party? Today could be spent helping the kids to bake their favorite treats and of course a party wouldn’t be complete without a party cake, our giant cupcake recipe is easy-peasy and looks fantastic once decorated. Giant Cupcake



Party time!! Decorate the house, put on your favorite party tunes and you and the kids can tuck into all the delicious treats you made yesterday.


We hope you have a fun and stress-free half term!!
