11 Fun Ideas for this Half Term

14th Feb - 20th Feb

Check out these great activities to do this half term!   

1) Pizza making this is a great activity – from making the dough to picking the toppings and the best bit you get to eat it afterwards. Click here for a great recipe and if you need ingredients Iceland deliver 


2) Poohsticks – sometimes it good to get back to basic.  This simple game may be played on any bridge over running water and Maidstone has some great spots. Each player drops a stick on the upstream side of a bridge and the one whose stick first appears on the downstream side is the winner.

6) Get out and about - When you go for your daily exercise why not add a fun element like seeing how many birds’ nests or squirrels you can see.  Or take it in turns to come up with silly walks or even mark the gardens you pass out of 10…just don’t tell the owners.

7) Dancing - Check out some tutorial for some dancing fun.  From the songs like Havana or the Disney Descendants tunes…an awesome way to get you moving too. 




8) Get Coloring - The Malls Monster Friends club has lots of colouring and activities find it here
