Got a ‘barrow full of cheeky monkeys to entertain this half-term? We’ll help you keep them active and having fun. We know boredom is the enemy! Here’s our top picks for where you can take the wee ones for half-term.
Sticking with the ape theme, why not let the kids harness their inner ape and get them swinging and climbing in a place that won’t leave furniture broken and you with a headache! That’s right it’s time to Go Ape @ Leeds Castle / Bedgebury Pinetum
Fantastic fun no matter what age you are, with areas for those as young as 6 all the way up to big kids (adults). Guaranteed to beat boredom, provide a bit of exercise and see the world from a whole new perspective.
For those ‘deer’ to you, we’ve got a wonderful day out for you up our collective sleeves. Get a guided tour at Knole Park @ Sevenoaks 15/02 Various Times
Knole Park is an iconic location in the Garden of England, and what’s better than being taken on a guided tour to discover more about this wonderful location and the secrets within. Learn about the history and catch sight of the park’s resident deer, all in one day!
Want something a bit more high-speed? Something a bit different? The ability to dig a whopping great hole? Well, you’re in luck with Kent, as we have Diggerland @ Strood for your enjoyment.
Let the kids drive themselves crazy on some massive industrial vehicles and diggers. There isn’t another place like it and it’s certainly a unique experience. With activities running throughout the week including a kids club and a hunt for buried treasure, you won’t be digging yourself out of a hole with the kids for this idea.
Last but certainly not least is an old favourite that we thought we’d lost but luckily is back and is better than ever. Whether you’ve been before or not, the reopening is a great excuse to pop down to Kent Life @ Maidstone.
The place where heritage meets family fun, this place is jammed packed with fun for everyone. Get some hands on time with the cuddly animals, take a trip on a tractor, get a bit creative with some arts and crafts time or just enjoy the scenery. Kent Life has a little of everything to keep the kids happy and the parents sane.
Hopefully we’ve given you some great ideas for half-term and help you defeat the kids boredom.We’ll keep you topped up on great ideas every Friday, so stay tuned. Think of us as your We Love Wingmen and remember we’re here to take the stress out of having an adventure in Kent.
