You give them a list of things that they must track down on the web. The more obscure the better. Thye must save the web addresses where they found them to a favourites folder.

Some of the silly MN threads on here searching for things may help you

My DS 8yrs is going to National Trusts kids club next week. Costs £5 for a year with only a few activities costing a little extra. 2hrs in morning and 1 in afternoon 2 full weeks throughout summer. DD and I wander aorund grounds or go to local village while hes there and then take picnic lunch in.
The Countryside Rangers do activities at mamy locations.

Drama club/ workshops.

Mosschops30- I am (was until she went to her dads for 3 weeks [sad) in the same boat as you, dd is 8 and ds 14months.... (not walking yet though).

I just ask her what she fancied doing and most of the time she wanted to play with her friends (in and out all the time too hot to stay out for long periods)... or go swimming,

The thing I find hard is even going to the pools with DD not alot of shade for DS to sit in so we can't stay long as he gets irratable in the heat... have just ordered a shade a babe cover so hopefully this meant will be able to stay out longer with her when she gets back.
