The final idea in this half term series is to find out what special events are on over the school holidays and go to a few of them. Usually they cost a few pounds to participate but as a final activity to add to all the free ones over the week that might be alright !
Round here we are very lucky that the town council puts on free concerts in the parks so as long as the weather is fine you can hear some very fine music and when the children are bored they can run off to play on the play equipment ! It is always fin to get something for nothing but we also all pay the community charge in one form or another so make the most of your contribution and find out what is going on in your area. The town or local council are usually the best places to try first and some of them even issue free magazines telling you what is going on for families over the summer.
What's your favourite free or low-cost event in your area ?
