Experiences to Beat School-Holiday Blues

If you’re sick of hearing that your children are bored during the school holidays, or even at the weekend, why not plan an exciting day out? There are lots of junior experience days available that are perfect for marking a special occasion or simply to give them some memories that they will never forget. Here are some ideas for boys and girls that will make them smile – and prevent the moaning from driving you mad.


A Cowboy Adventure for Kids is the ideal choice for boys and girls alike. They’ll learn how to tack and untack a pony, enjoy an hour’s riding lesson and learn how to throw horseshoes and lassos. They’ll also get to sit down to a traditional cowboy meal of beans and burgers. Yee hah! A Treetop Junior Adventure on a Go Ape course is another ideal choice for active little monkeys. There are locations across the country where the kids can go canopy exploring and zoom down zip wires. They’ll have fun and, you never know, they might be so exhausted they’ll even go to bed on time. This one’s best for youngsters between the ages of six and twelve.

If you’ve got agents aged between ten and sixteen at home, how about sending them off to a Kids’ Spy Academy? They’ll learn some cunning skills from former surveillance officers, as well as take part in an exciting laser tag shoot-out. There’s also plenty of code-cracking on offer and the chance to put their new skills to the test on a thrilling mission. Just be prepared for plenty of sneaking about at home once you get your kids back. Thrill-seekers will also enjoy a Driver Experience at Brands Hatch or an action-packed Tank Driving adventure.
