My Children break up from school tomorrow for nearly 6 weeks, I was thinking today about the things that i can do to try and keep them entertained as we know that this is along time off from school and the children get bored. Have you got any great idea's to keep the children entertained in their summer holidays from school?

I know how difficult it is to keep children entertain during the summer holidays i have five to keep amused its not so bad with my elder ones who are 15 and 16. But its different with the younger ones who are 11,7 and 2. Have you got any museums near you i know that alot of them are free entry now. I took my children to the National History museum and the Science museum in London and they loved it. How about a picnic thats if the weather nice lets face it living in Britian you can't guarantee that. Or maybe a day out at the seaside my children just love the beach.

My sisters are out right now for the summer. They have been out since around June 15. They go back in the beginning of September. My one sister is 15 and she doesn't get bored too quick. My other sister is 7 and she gets kind of bored quick. Especially if it is too hot to go outside and play with her friends. Mostly this summer she has went outside and played with her friends, she really enjoys doing that. We were gonna try and get her a small pool to play in but I don't know now. If you have a dollar store where you live you could go there and buy a bunch of activities for them to do. We have two dollar stores here. One store has everything for a dollar and the other one is a little higher but they have cheap things also. We got her a slip n slide from on the stores. So lately we have been letting her play on that from time to time. We just watch how long they do it because of the water, it will run up the bill. We also got her a cheap bike and a scooter. So I guess you could try picking up cheap activities for them to do here and there. Even if it is something small. My sister likes to draw so we will pick her up notebooks and art crafts occasionally.
