How is it the first half term of the year next week? Didn’t we only just send the kids back to school after two weeks off for Christmas? If you’re drawing a blank when it comes to plans for February half term, don’t worry; we’ve all been in the same boat. You’re invited to have the best half term ever with our guide to what’s on and what you can get up to at home.
Take a trip to LEGOLAND
LEGOLAND Windsor will be opening its doors for the first time for Brick Week this February half term. From the 15th – 23rd February, families can enjoy 20 awesome rides and attractions as well as exclusive brick building activities. LEGO builders big and small can experience the February fun for £20 per person when booking tickets online in advance at LEGOLAND.
See a show
Room on The Broom will be playing in South West London at the Rose Theatre Kingston for the latter half of February half term (18th Feb – 23rd Feb). The witch and her cat are travelling on their broomstick when they pick up some hitch-hikers – a friendly dog, a beautiful green bird and a frantic frog. But this broomstick’s not meant for five and – CRACK – it snaps in two… just as the hungry dragon appears! Will there ever be room on the broom for everyone? Click here to book your tickets.
Watch a film
For something a little closer to home why not take the kids to your local cinema? Big releases such as Dolittle, Sonic the Hedgehog and The Call of the Wild all coincide with the kids’ holidays.
February also heralds the start of the spring lambing season, and a great place to enjoy this cuddly side of the great outdoors is at the award-winning Cotswold Farm Park and Cannon Hall Farm.
Join Activity Village – £19.95 per user for a full year of access
Staying at home? Activity Village is home to a whole host of activities for you to enjoy with your kids this February half term, including colouring pages, jokes, crafts and puzzles.
Enjoy a day out at your local SEA LIFE
This spring (15th Feb – 31st May), SEA LIFE is launching the Jawsome Sharks and Friends quest to help Professor Finn find the missing Top Trumps cards, so he can teach everybody about the incredible sharks and sea creatures that live at the aquarium. The mad professor is hoping to recruit a new team of Jawsome Rangers for 2020 to help him in his mission to locate all of the missing cards and place them in the correct order. Once the rangers have qualified, the new recruits will receive a very special reward to take home and continue to learn and develop their passion for exploring. Guests will learn fun facts along the way about the species of sharks and other amazing creatures that call the aquarium home. Tickets start from £9.95 and you can book them here.
Visit the Postal Museum, London
For centuries the post has come under attack. From pirates on the seas and highway men on the roads to robbers, spies, crooks and thieves – all trying to swindle the service and intercept top-secret messages. Throughout February half term, The Postal Museum is offering a programme of fun and interactive activities set to inspire curious minded kids. From making a wax sealed letter for extra security, to sensory storytelling and a unique detective training trail around the museum, there are activities for all ages inspired by The Postal Museum’s temporary exhibition The Great Train Robbery: Crime and The Post. Family activities will take place from 17th February – 22nd May. Click here for more information and to book.
