|8 Out Of 10 Mums Say|
July always comes around so quickly doesn't it? It's a great feeling to be able to take time out to spend with the kids and get quality family time together.
But it can also be a squeeze financially and perhaps leave you worrying how you are going to keep the children entertained for so many weeks. And of course a lot of the activities you might plan will be dependent on the weather holding up.
A good way to relieve summer holiday anxiety can be to make a plan before hand to outline some of the children's favourite activities and ideas for days out; including back up plans if it rains! This can be a nice activity to carry out with the children as it can involve lots of colouring in or stickers because you can be creative as you like with the layout and style of your plan.
Plan AheadSetting up a timetable is a good learning activity, although be careful not to make it sound too rigid, and always ensure you plan in free time or lazy time for everyone to relax and do their own thing. By planning in the bigger or more costly activities ahead of time, it can help you to manage the budget more effectively or have a little time to save up. Keeping days out a secret from the children can add to the excitement, and also help you to find the best money saving deals. Plan a 'mystery tour' day a few weeks ahead of schedule, then visit a daily deals website to take a look at what's on offer. The chances are you'll be able to get a good family day out at less than half the usual price, and will find new inspiration from some of the offers and surprise the children with a new and different experience. Some of the top London Attractions offers can be found exclusively online, as well as discounted family train tickets if bought in advance. Being organised really can help you save money!
Indoor activitiesIt's great if you're lucky enough to have a garden as this can provide hours of free fun for the children and can give them freedom for messier activities such as water fights and painting. To keep the children occupied when they can't be in the garden, take a look at some quality websites such as CBeebies for things to make and do. No matter what you plan for the holidays, the most important thing is to enjoy yourselves and have fun as a family, as they won't be children forever.
