Half term is fast approaching, so we’ve pulled together some of the best activities on offer around the UK to help you plan your family’s fun!
Shake off the winter chill and jump straight into some half term fun! Even better, we’ve included any donations you could raise with our suggestions, to help make your family-time even more rewarding!
Bristol: We The Curious
Situated in the Bristol harbourside, We The Curious is an interactive centre that aims to answer all those curiosities and questions. It’s definitely not your average science museum, and there’s a schedule jam-packed with family activities over two floors AND the UK’s only 3D planetarium!
Even better, the centre is run by an educational charity meaning that when you book your ticket you’ll be helping disadvantaged children!
UK Wide: National Trust Days Out
From tracking wild animals to getting the kids into nature with ’50 things to do before you’re 11¾’, there’s lots to do at National Trust places this half term. Whether you’re after things to do with the kids or somewhere to shelter from those rainy days, there’s plenty to get stuck into over the holidays.
Even better, National Trust membership is only £10 per year for kids, or £10.50 per month for a family of 2 adults and up to 10 children and grandchildren! Plus, you’ll raise 1.5% for the charity of your choice when you buy via Give as you Live!
New for February half-term, the Changing Seas exhibit educates kids about the affects of climate change on our seas, with the chance to see new toxic species including Red lionfish and Dog faced pufferfish
London: Vets in Action at London Zoo
Vets in Action is back at ZSL London Zoo! Budding young vets can put their animal care skills to the test and experience first-hand what it takes to be a vet at the Zoo.
This February half-term, from Saturday 15 February to Sunday 23 February, kids will be placed in the heart of the action in our fun role-playing vet experience. After reporting for duty at the specially created Animal hospital reception, junior vets will pop on their white coats and join the team in the Zoo’s hands-on vet clinics.
Children will help examine, x-ray and carry out treatments on toys, from microchipping meerkats to removing plastic from the tummy of a sea turtle – experiencing first-hand the huge variety of work carried out by the Zoo’s vets, vet nurses and zookeepers.
After the stethoscopes come off, a packed schedule of demonstrations and activities throughout the week will take families further inside the exciting world of the Zoo: explaining everything the ZSL team does to keep its 18,000 residents in tip-top condition.
The Vets in Action experience is included in the ticket price, but advance booking is recommended. Even better, when you book online via Give as you Live you’ll raise 2.5% in FREE funds for your charity!
