I am clearly on another planet atm as I've only realised today (and then only because ex dh pointed it out and asked what plans we had) that it's half term from next Thursday and it's 2 whole weeks. I'm sure we'll have a lovely time but I haven't planned anything and think I ought to think about it. So what are you doing? Any suggestions? I have a 7yo and a 15mo so suggestions that would suit them both would be great! Thanks.

Am praying for ok weather so that the kids can go in the garden.

We should be going swimming at least once, a trip to the zoo and also London Aquarium. Plus some visits to the local park should entertain my 2!

Hey, MI - and a very exciting visit to Wilbur Towers! We're also girding loins for a trip to Legoland - supposed to have good stuff for littlies as well as the bigger kids.

We will do the zoo although I am bored stiff with it. We have a season ticket so go A Lot. But hey, it's not for me, I do realise that! I suppose we'll do walks too and borrow other children for days in the park and maybe go to Devon for a couple of days and London for a couple more. <exhausted sigh at the thought of it all>

Our Spring break isn't for another 2 weeks and I will spending my time packing my house to move. What fun I will have.

Tesco's have got a really good Easter Egg Hunt kit, if you fancy that. Where are you and maybe we can give you ideas close to home.

mckenzie Sun 20-Mar-05 20:02:07

think yourself lucky WWW. The playschool that DS goes to has closed now for the Easter break for 1 month!!!!
and I have a newborn to contend with as well. Oh what fun!

Cam Sun 20-Mar-05 20:09:50

www surely its the Easter hols? It probably seems like half term as Easter is so early this year that the Spring Term was v. short. It does mean that Summer Term will be nice and long though

WideWebWitch Sun 20-Mar-05 20:39:08

Cam, you're right, the terminology has got me! I never pay attention to what they're called, I'm just aware there's no school for ages!

Find a new job very quickly and get dp to resign and become SAHD again?

hatsoff Sun 20-Mar-05 23:12:36

visit gps and let them worry about it all? My mum does a great line in cake-baking, easter egg painting, duck-feeding. Hell she can even make a trip to the newsagent to buy her paper exciting. And she keeps dd-sized portions of home-made shepherd's pie and chicken casserole in the freezer. I love my mum me

The Independent on Saturday has an 'Information' magazine, with films, gigs, art, TV etc. There is a v good section for Whats on for children, lists of things to do all over the UK.

Took DD to Tattersall Castle, Lincolnshire last year - there was a Medieval day complete with knights jousting, archery, jugglers, puppet show, face painting, brass rubbing, have-a-go-crafts. We had a great day.

ooh I forgot to mention the cbeebies web site and an Art Attack cd!

So far I've arranged 1 day with a friend and her children and have borrowed a friend of ds's for 2 other days. I've also been to tourist info and picked up about a hundred leaflets.
