Things to do in February Half Term 2015

Half term break and school holidays always feel like a mixed blessing… as parents it’s wonderful to have a bit of time with the kids and to watch them tear around the park or build dens in the living room. When you’ve got more than one child, the bliss soon descends into utter chaos, and about three days you’re seriously considering phoning the school and demanding that they re-open their doors.

This is where our February Half Term 2015 Guide comes in very handy indeed. Bookmark this page and keep popping back whenever you need some ideas – we’ve got a great mix of half term workshops, art activities, shows, child friendly museums, historic homes, National Trust sites for kids, incredible visitor attractions, rainy day activities and more.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”1_3″][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text” background_layout=”light” text_orientation=”left”][/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row][et_pb_column type=”1_3″][et_pb_blurb admin_label=”Imagine Children’s Festival” title=”Imagine Children’s Festival – Southbank Centre” url=”http://www.southbankcentre.co.uk/whatson/festivals-series/imagine-childrens-festival” url_new_window=”on” use_icon=”off” icon_color=”#7EBEC5″ use_circle=”off” circle_color=”#7EBEC5″ use_circle_border=”off” circle_border_color=”#7EBEC5″ image=”http://reallykidfriendly.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/February-Half-Term-2015-Imagine-Childrens-Festival-Southbank1.jpg” alt=”February Half Term 2015 – Imagine Childrens Festival Southbank” icon_placement=”top” animation=”top” background_layout=”light” text_orientation=”left”]
