Summer Holidays Ideas

Summer Holidays Ideas

Wow we’ve got one week left at school and then a wonderful summer of fun to create! I love this time of year when I get my children to myself and can enjoy lazy mornings and doing whatever we want to, but I do have to get my thinking cap on for things to do together that don’t all cost a bomb. 

We’re lucky to have quite a few trips planned after a year of hard work on the business; time at the beach in Dorset where Tom’s family have holidayed for years, a family sun holiday abroad, a visit to my aunty in Northumberland where we’ll explore the beautiful coastline and countryside, and a stay at the family farm of some dear friends in Scotland.

I thought I’d share with you my ideas for filling the rest of our time (though the number 1 activity is our amazing ExplorerBoxes of course!) I don’t think we’ll quite get through all of these so will save some for October half term too. 

Has anyone got any other great ideas to add to our list? We’re always keen to hear about and try new things. 


Activities at home (I've added links and Instagram accounts where useful): 


Outdoors activities:

  • Fishing in the pond/stream/lake
  • Nature walk. Do you have a local wildlife trust centre as they often host great activities?
  • Strawberry picking
  • Bike ride 
  • Go ape high ropes challenge
  • Country/farm park or National Trust
  • Crazy golf
  • Park tennis/football/cricket
  • Lots of parks around us are starting to have splash zones which are a huge hit in the summer
  • Rowing boat/kayak on the lake or river
  • Pony rides at the local stables 


Indoors activities - just in case it rains:

  • Bowling 
  • Cinema
  • Climbing
  • Swimming
  • Library
  • Museum
  • Soft play
  • Trampolining centre
  • Roller / ice skating
  • Pottery painting 

However you choose to spend your time we hope you have a really great summer filled with adventure and giggles. Fingers crossed the weather stays lovely!
