May half term is when you know summer is on its way, but with school out for a week, it’s difficult not to spend lots of money on keeping children entertained.

Here’s a few inspirational tips for fun and cheap things you can do to keep them occupied.

Science can be fun

A mini Monet
Painting – a nice, quiet activity that is guaranteed to keep them entertained for hours. If it’s nice weather, you could stick together lots of pieces of paper to make a giant canvas, and let them run about and get messy (but maybe not so quiet!) in the garden.

Fun in the sun
Garden games are always a winner if the weather stays fine. With a few pieces of cardboard, there’s lots of games you could create, such as ‘noughts & crosses’, or if you’re feeling really creative, a game of garden bowling. The kids will have great fun helping to make it as well as playing it.
