Four ways to keep your children entertained on holiday



Taking your children on holiday can often be a daunting experience as you’ll be under pressure to keep them constantly entertained. Whereas you may consider a trip away a chance to relax and unwind, away from the stresses of work, your kids will see it as a chance to have some serious fun.

Here are some ways to save your little ones from boredom on your travels.


Go on a bike ride

Although your children may cycle at home, going on an actual ride on a pre-set route will really open their eyes to the beauty of their surroundings; whether at home or abroad.

Bicycles are cheap, easy to ride and environmentally friendly – the perfect antidote to hours spent in a car, coach or on a plane.


Surf the web with them

Children these days are incredibly tech savvy, and you should fully embrace that fact.  Just by connecting to Wireless Broadband whilst you’re away opens up a whole cyber world of entertainment where they can chill out and watch films, play games and chat to friends online, whilst you can research upcoming activities and events in your area.

If you’re a BT Broadband customer you can connect to one of five million BT hotspots in the UK or one of 3 million across the world on your laptop, mobile or tablet device.


To the beach!

You probably spend much of your year wistfully dreaming you were on a picturesque sandy beach, the cool breeze caressing your hair and the waves lapping peacefully at your feet.

Kids absolutely love it as well as it is still a new and exciting place for them. Take a bucket and spade so they can build a grand castle fit for a king and queen, swimsuits so they can frolic in the sea, and some sporting equipment like a Frisbee or tennis set to add even more outdoor fun to the occasion.


Take them to a museum

Whatever your kids are into there is bound to be a museum of interest to them somewhere. Admission is usually free so check out which ones your area has to offer and head on over.

Children may be reluctant to go to an area of learning at first (school’s out after all!) but if you find a suitable one for them, such as the Natural History Museum or the Science Museum, then you can watch their eyes fill with utter amazement.

A 70's child, I’ve been married for a Very Long Time, and appear to have made four children, and collected one large and useless dog along the way. I work, I have four children, I have a dog… ergo, I do not do dusting or ironing. I began LittleStuff back in (gulp) 2004. I like huge mugs of tea. And Coffee. And Cake. And a steaming cone of crispy fresh fluffy chips, smothered in salt and vinegar. #healthyeater When I grow up I am going to be quietly graceful, organised and wear lipstick every day. In the meantime I *may* have a slight butterfly-brain issue.
