Things to do in the summer holidays

Our summer holidays are running along fine at the moment, a two week break in Devon (which still needs writing up – ahem) and a week back to work already under my belt with the help of some lovely friends who have looked after the twins for me.

This week my mum is doing her bit and taking the girls down to our static caravan at Birchington Vale for the week where they can swim, go to the beach and discover hundreds of things to do on the Isle of Thanet. I’m going to try and record what we do on my new blog and hopefully it will come in handy for others too when visiting the area.

It’s quite a chore keeping the kids entertained all the time isn’t it? If you feel you’re running out of ideas take a look at the great list below. I had a chat with some of my favourite blogging friends to see what great ideas they are coming up with and I’m amazed at the response. This is your summer holiday inspiration in one click, bookmark for future reference and keep the kids happy with all these great activities.

Things to do in the summer holidays

Days Out

Kirsty over at the Mummysphere has a great activity for Peter Rabbit fans, at Willows Activity Farm

Rebecca from Here Comes The Girls has taken her children to the Warner Bros Studios and tells us all about it

Michelle from Mummy from the Heart suggests cliff walking as a great outdoors activity


Hopefully there won’t be too many rainy days with the remainder of the holidays but just in case here are some brilliant ideas to consider

Try your hand at gorgeous mosaics like Liz over at Me and My Shadow

Carolin from Mummy Alarm has top tips for camping

And Emma and 3 talks about the ABTA swim safety campaign


Another fabulous way to keep kids entertained is getting them into the kitchen and making some delicious ice cream like my Snozzcumber recipe

Becky at Simple Parenting has a scrumptious recipe for Banana Muffins

Jenny at Mummy Mishaps has ice cream cones with sprinkles

Bucket List

Cass at Frugal Family has 100 Frugal Fun summer activities to keep you entertained all summer and light on the pocket too!
