Let’s Have Some Fun This February Half Term!

Posted on February 01, 2016 by Fancy Dress Ball


It’s almost half term! Are you looking forward to it?

If you don’t fancy an entire week of children being slumped on the sofa, don’t panic! We’ve scoured the internet to come up with this great list of fun activities you can do with them… and they’re mostly free! Winner!

  • Get them cooking! Here’s a list of 30 simple recipes kids can do by themselves – so you can supervise to ensure no kitchen redecoration, but they can have loads of fun… and hopefully you get something nice to eat at the end of it.
  • Indulge in some messy play. Don’t be fooled into thinking messy play is only for babies and toddlers; children of all ages love to play with gloopy, gungy stuff. This article has a list of sensory tubs which you could easily knock up of a morning. Or if you want to go all out, why not make some moon dough or some silly putty. Both are really simple to make, and children of all ages love to play with them.
  • Go to the cinema! Most cinemas will have special showings for half term, and tickets are usually cheaper than a normal showing.
  • If the weather is good, why not get outside for some fresh air? Check out this great list of outdoor activities or just go for a good old fashioned walk in a local park or forest. Here are some printable scavenger hunts you can do to make a normal walk more entertaining for youngsters.
  • If the weather is bad, take a look at this brilliant list of “Stuck Inside Games.” These are all brilliant things you can do at home without spending money or switching on the TV.
  • Build a snowman (are we the only people hoping for a white February?)
  • Make bird feeders: simple yet fun, and will hopefully encourage different birds into your garden!
  • Make this cool “rock candy experiment” where children can essentially grow their own lolly pop.
  • Listen to your local radio station to find out abou what might be going on locally. If you don’t know which is your local station, take a look at this website.
  • And finally, our favourite option: have a fancy dress party! It doesn’t need to be somebody’s birthday in order for you to have a cracking party; invite a couple of people over and play dress-ups!

Whatever you end up doing this February half term, make sure it’s loads of fun! We’d love to see photos of your fancy dress antics; why not share on our Facebook page!
