Easter holidays activities -that won't break the bank!

Hey, So is it me or is Easter early again this year? Or are the half term holidays getting longer, as a working mum, its hard juggling work and the kids and keeping them entertained. It’s a hard because if you have to work and they are in childcare it can easily make you feel super Guilty. For me I combat these feelings by making sure when we all have time together we make the most of the time we have together and have lots of fun!

So I’ve put together some ideas of what you could get up to this half term and it won't break the bank:

Walking: Get out and about walking there’s so many lovely outdoor spaces in Leicester: Bradgate park, Watermead, Broxhill, Abby park, Swithland woods, Knighton park are to name a few. How about packing a picnic and heading out for a day. Take some paper and crayons and get the kids to find things at the park that they like and can take rubbing of. It will keep them entertained for hours.

Farm Parks: This would be great for younger kids, the city farm is run on donations and is full of fab animals, there’s a little park that the kids can play on also. Why not copy and past some farm animals on to an A4 sheet, print them out and get the kids to explore the farm and look for the farm animals. They can cross them off as they find them. The city farm has a carpark but also has great bus links. Find out more at http://www.gorsehillcityfarm.org.uk/
