We are now on the final count down for the Summer holidays to start.  The kids are definitely in need of the break and I can say that I won’t miss the school run.  It is always a challenge to think of ideas to entertain the children for 6 weeks.  My two always go to bed asking “what are we doing tomorrow?” so its nice to have some ideas ready to fill the days.  I thought it would be good to put together a list of summer holiday activities.  We all sat down together and added our ideas to our summer holidays wish list and our challenge is to tick them all off by the time they return to school in September.

Summer holidays wish list, ideas for things to do during half term with the kids

This list was made up of things that my two kids would like to do during the summer holidays so they should have lots of fun doing them.  The list has lots of activities for outside summer fun but there are also some indoor activities for those rainy days (lets face it we are bound to have a few!).  A lot of them also cost nothing to do which is a definite bonus for the 6 weeks summer holidays.

I hope this has given you a few ideas for things to do during the summer holidays.  Visit my other post for ideas on places to visit in Essex during half term.

Have lots of fun!

Don’t forget to Pin for later …..
