Summer holiday ideas for kids

A couple of years ago We bought plastic goldfish bowls from Poundland for our grandchildren. We added a string handle to carry them. We spent the day at the beach collecting seaweed, shells and crabs etc to make “day aquariums”. The children loved scavenging around the beach looking at what they had gathered and then everything was returned to the sea at the end of the day!

    How about a paddling pool, or a slip slide for the garden, maybe anything you could take down to the beach? maybe you could get some sort of wii or ps4 to keep them occupied when its raining?

    If it's not cold, then you can go to an amusement park or camping.

    Try finding an outdoor water park for the summer that is always a great idea. Or places which have things like mini golf!
