Keep your kids entertained on a budget.

The summer holidays have started (ok im abit behind, it was the first day last week) We usually plan these 6 weeks military style, i have a notebook full of activities, both at home and outdoors. If its free... fantastic! If i need to pay, thats ok, we all like treats. If its more than £40.... we are saving up hard for it!

Over the course of the summer holidays i am going to post various things that we have been up to. Some are reviews, some crafty stuff, some "lets laze about all day in the house posts" all low cost or very good value for money. 

As some may be aware by now, i am a mahoosive fan of thing to do in my local area. When we lived in London, we took full advantage of the abundance of free museums, the underground taking us to anywhere we wanted to go and of course a spot of sightseeing. I was worried when i moved to Nottingham that the kids would miss out on the fun things. A quick google opened up a whole world of fantastic things to do right on our doorstep, many of which are very budget friendly. 

Here's a taster of posts i have planned: 
  • A-Z of summer fun - Each working day ill follow something to do with that days letter of the alphabet. Its a fun way of planning things with the kids, they have got fully involved and they have an idea of what's in store in the future. 
  • Some reviews of local attractions in Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield. 
  • If budget allows, some reviews on attractions further afield. Up until recently, i was unaware how close some places were. If it is further than a 2 hour train ride, it will fall under this category. 
  • Crafty activities. I have been saving up my toilet roll tubes, brought some paints and stocked the cupboard with baking stuff, ready for the days when we want to stay in and do something light. 
Keep an eye out for future posts. Whilst i aim to post daily, me being the busy bee that i am often does not allow this. I do hope to post at least 3 times a week but be warned for the catch up posts i may end up doing :D

What do you all have planned for your families?
