Kids always look forward to the school holidays, whatever the time of year! However, as parents, you’ll know how difficult it can be to come up with adventures for the holidays that will keep your children entertained and away from mischief. October half term can be tricky; not quite warm enough to be outside all day, but not quite cold enough to stick close to the fire! But don’t worry, because we’ve got some great suggestions for fun autumn half term activities with the kids!
1. Release their inner photographer
Autumn can be a beautiful time of year. The change in season can lead to some amazing colours as leaves turn from green to yellow, orange, red and brown. So why not take your little ones out with a camera to try and capture some of the fantastic colours and textures out there? We’re not suggesting they’ll be the next David Bailey, but it should get their creative juices flowing!
2. Halloween antics
If your child’s half term falls in the final week of October, an obvious thing to do is to get carving those pumpkins! Even if the holiday takes place the week before, you could perhaps get creative and make some spooky Halloween costumes. If they’ve got a party to attend or are going trick or treating, you can make sure they’re the best and scariest dressed kid in town!
3. Two wheels are better than one
When the weather’s dry, autumn can be a great time of year to get out on your bike. If your children are already competent cyclists, half term could be a good excuse to get out together as a family on some new cycle routes. With younger kids, this could be an opportunity to put the time into learning the art of cycling. Just always remember that they need to wear a helmet!
4. Putting this one in!
People of all ages can enjoy a round of golf! If your family are already into the game, taking the kids to a driving range or putting green could help you all get out and make the most of the holiday. Alternatively, crazy golf is always fun! There are more and more urban crazy golf courses opening at indoor venues, so you can enjoy the sport whatever the weather!
5. Don’t forget the dog!
We know you won’t actually forget the dog, but when working out your half term activities you could try and factor some dog walks into your plans. Try finding new routes where you can give your pup and kids space to run around and play. Woodland walks could help you get into an autumnal mood. You could also try meeting up with other dog walkers with children, turning your walks into sociable occasions!
