We've been asked by Mu (the funky new Cheddar brand) to find out your top ideas/tips for keeping the summer holidays fun filled without breaking the bank. This could include arts and crafts, games, things to do at home, places to visit etc - we would love to know your favourite family activity.

Mu say "Mu believes in fuelling more family fun everyday; be this through our range of delicious, natural cheddars or through giving families the tools to make every day as enjoyable as it can be. The summer holidays are a perfect excuse to have fun with the family but sometimes it?s difficult to think of ideas to fill the whole holidays. Mu would like to create a free downloadable booklet which includes a list of activities that Mums can use for a bit of inspiration when needed"

This is where you come in! Please share your top tips on this thread.

The best ideas will feature in the Mu "Make everyday a Mu Fun day" free booklet which will be free to download from the Mu website and Facebook site from the 23rd of July

All entries will be put into a prize draw to win a family Merlin annual pass (worth over £400) which offers a family of four free entry into 28 top attractions including Alton Towers, Chessington and Sea Life Centre plus many more.

PLUS all entries chosen to feature in the booklet will win a months supply of Mu Cheddar. If your tip is used MN will be in touch for your address details.

Thanks and good luck
MNHQ

Hi there, 1st time on Mumsnet and logged on to see if others have experienced events of today. Only son playing out with a friend only to be told off by neighbour who said that he wasn't to set one foot on the pavement outside her house or touch the lamp post - bizarre! Very quiet area, no noise so not a problem I thought for him to walk and play quietly but apparently so. Spent all afternoon with child, normally very resilient, who is worried about playing out?

MrsB1234 - you may be best off starting a thread in chat here - thanks!

Did everyone else actually receive their cheese? I'm still waiting for mine.

EllenParsons Wed 24-Oct-12 00:15:53

Helenagrace I did not receive my cheese either!

ICutMyFootOnOccamsRazor Wed 24-Oct-12 19:17:16

Yes, I got mine. It came in late July or early August, I think?

In a little cool box with a coldpack inside.

It was a LOT of cheese, but all gone now smile.
