Top Tips For Summer Holiday Fun

Needs plans for the summer holidays? Whether your working on a budget or just need ideas for how to keep the little ones entertained, take note of our simply ideas and make summer 2018 the best one yet.


Camping in the garden!

It’s time to put down the games controller and get them out into the garden and some fresh air into their lungs.

Camping is a great way to have fun, but it doesn’t mean traveling long and far, do it in the comfort of your own garden and let them enjoy a night with friends under the stars. Or if you can’t always rely on Great British weather set the camping station up in your living room.


Avoid mucky feet indoors by setting up a drinks station for ice cold drinks during the night. Fill a drinks dispenser with ice and juice and let them help themselves.

Have fun with ice!

Toys in ice

Amaze them by creating home made ice blocks with toys frozen inside. It’s super easy to do and will keep them entertained for hours.

Grab an old sandwich box and fill with water, place a couple of small toys inside and place in the freezer to freeze. Once frozen run the outside of the tub under warm water and push out the block.

It’s now ready! Place on a table and give the kids some plastic tools to try and crack open the ice.

Ice lolly mad

What kid doesn’t love an ice lolly? Make homemade ice lollies with fresh fruit this summer and let them be in charge when it comes to choosing what fruit to make it with. To create, add a couple of handfuls of fruit, 100ml of natural yogurt and teaspoon of honey to a blender, blend until smooth and pour into an ice lolly mold, pop in a lolly pop stick and freeze.

Trips to the seaside

It’s the one day out the kids never get bored of. Let them feel the sand between their toes and enjoy a day out at the beach. Not one for making a pack up of snacks and drinks? Try this handy trick for ice cold drinks on the beach all day long. Buy a bag of Party Ice from the local shop, tear open and add you favourite drinks. That’s it, ice cold drinks with no mess whilst on the beach! When finished pour the ice on the sand and let dissolve.

Get crafty

Get creative with crafty art. It’s a special feeling when they see their work of art taking centre on the kitchen fridge. Making crafts doesn’t mean you have to break the bank. Make homemade paint at home with 4 simple ingredients. Combine 1/2 cup of flour with 1/2 cup of salt and 1/2 cup of water to a sandwich bag. Add a couple of drops of food colouring for colour and mix together. There you have it….


Try using ice cubes for more fun! Simply add a dob of each colour of paint to a big sheet of paper, place an ice cube on top and let it slide around until the sheet is full of paint and colour. I bet they’ll enjoy this one!
