Things To Do with Children During the February Half Term

February half term can be a testing time for parents, as they try to keep their kids entertained whilst also dealing with the cold, dreary weather. Fortunately, there are plenty of fun and engaging activities that you can do with your children while school’s out. Here are some ideas for things to do with children that the whole family can get involved with.

Have a movie marathon

There’s nothing like a cosy day inside to escape the winter weather. Pick a theme or genre, stock up on snacks, and spend the day snuggled up on the sofa watching your kids’ favourite movies. It’s guaranteed to keep them entertained if they get to pick which films they are watching too! What more could you ask for?

Get outside and go for a nature walk 

Even if the weather is cold and wet, getting outside and exploring nature is a great way to burn off energy. Trust us when we say that kids will need a great run around throughout the day. Wrap up warm and embrace the chill in the airhead to a local park or nature reserve for a brisk walk.

Pancake Day

Pancake Day falls on 21st February this year, and we can’t wait to tuck into some delicious fluffy pancakes. It’s always a huge debate here at Diggerland. Duggy prefers crepes, however Dotty prefers American pancakes with plenty of sweet toppings. What’s your favourite?

Host a board game tournament

Still need some more ideas for things to do with children? Dust off the board games and host a family tournament. From classic games such as Monopoly and Scrabble, there’s a board game for every age and interest. If you’re planning at home, and with young kids, then be sure there’s no cheating going on… It will only lead to arguments!

Visit Diggerland for the February half term

Another great idea for a day out during February half term is a visit to Diggerland. Diggerland is a unique theme park where children and adults can ride and operate real construction machinery. It’s a fun and educational experience that is sure to be a hit with kids of all ages.

At Diggerland, kids can ride on diggers, dumpers, and other construction machinery. They can also operate mini diggers and learn how to drive their very own JCB 3CX. It’s a great way to introduce your children to the world of construction and engineering. Especially as it’s in such a fun and exciting environment!

In addition to the rides and activities, Diggerland also has a variety of other attractions. There are indoor and outdoor play areas, plus a restaurant where you can refuel after a day of fun. If you’re looking for things to do with children then a day out to Diggerland is a great way to get your kids active and engaged during the half term break. It’s a unique and exciting experience that they’re sure to remember for years to come.

Diggerland has locations throughout the UK, so there’s likely to be one within driving distance of your home. You can check our website for opening times and ticket prices.
