Summer holidays survival guide

Summer ideasWe all know how tough (and not to mention expensive) it can be to keep the kids entertained over the long summer holidays.

Trips to theme parks, activity centres and even the cinema can cost an arm and a leg, and with the good old British weather, you can't rely on a trip to the local park to make the grade.

But keeping your children amused needn't cost the world, so to make sure parents don't have to rely on shelling out for the latest blockbuster, B&Q has come up with some handy tips to keep them busy, and teach them something, in a summer holidays survival guide. You can get your kids learning real DIY skills at home, with various DIY-based activities and puzzles to keep them occupied.
