Top Rainy Day Half Term Activities

October half term is nearly here…how will you be entertaining the children while they are off school? Of course at this time of year it’s always best to be prepared with indoor activities which will keep the kids occupied whatever the weather. From fun days out to crafty days at home, read on for some half term inspiration which will keep the boredom at bay.

Days out

One of the best things about school holidays is family days out. There are lots of different places to visit, whether it’s fun or educational (or both) and many attractions organise special events during half term.

It can be difficult keeping kids active during the holidays, especially when it’s cold and rainy outside and they just want to play on their video games. Make sure the whole family gets in their weekly amount of exercise by jumping at Rush. It’s the perfect family activity because it’s suitable for all ages, and it’s so fun you don’t even realise it’s burning calories.

At Rush UK there is so much more than trampolines – host your own dodgeball competition, try the challenging assault course or dive into the foam pit. You can literally spend all day here if you have enough energy!

Half term is also the ideal time to celebrate Halloween, and at Rush there’s loads of extra activities happening from 20th October to make you jump session spooktastic. From pumpkin carving to face painting, we have lots of spooky activities to excite your little monsters! Book your half term session today.

Staying in

Cosy days in with friends can be just as fun as days out at a play centre or shopping mall. Here are some great ideas for parents who want to keep the children occupied while they get on with work around the house.

Craft stations – set up a number of craft stations around the house to allow the kids to do a craft circuit. What can you help them make?

Dance party – invite a few friends over and put on their favourite movie soundtrack or teen star. Dance parties can last for hours!

Movie night – set up your own cinema by building a fort with bedsheets and making your own snacks and sweet treats. Then it’s time to dim the lights and present the latest kids movies.

All parents need some rainy day activities up their sleeve – what’s your favourite?
