Is there anything better than a fun movie night?
Going to the cinema is always a popular choice, whether you are going with your friends, partner, or family. A good film with some popcorn and other snacks just elevates the entire experience, doesn’t it? At the moment, there are plenty of family-friendly films to look forward to, so take your pick.
Or, what about a game night?
Get the family together for a fun night of board games, card games, or video games. Make a makeshift fort or host an indoor treasure hunt for your little explorers. A family game night is a great way to spend quality time together and make some wonderful memories as a family.
Visit your local play centre!
If your children have a lot of energy to burn, an indoor play centre is the perfect solution. With ball pits, climbing frames, and slides, they’ll have a blast.
Spend some time in nature.
The UK is home to some beautiful countryside, and there are plenty of walking trails to explore. Wrap your kids warm with our comfortable children’s leggings, pack a picnic and spend the day enjoying the great outdoors. And while you are at it, do not forget to wear your warm character welly socks and clear wellies from Roy’s Boys!

Be a child again and visit the theme park with your kids.
For a day of thrills and excitement, head to one of the UK’s many theme parks. From rollercoasters to water rides, there’s something for everyone.
CBeebies Land at Alton Towers, Peppa Pig World at Paultons Park, Twinlakes Park, LEGOLAND, Thorpe Park Resort, Drayton Manor Resort, and Oakwood Theme Park are just a few of the many famous parks you could visit as a family.
How does going to the beach sound?
If the weather is on your side, a trip to the beach is a must. Although it may still be a little cold, a long walk by the beach sounds doable. While you are there, go ahead and build some sandcastles, paddle in the sea, and enjoy an ice cream or two.
Nothing beats a good picnic.
Whether it’s in a local park or in your own garden, a picnic is a lovely way to spend an afternoon. Pack some sandwiches, fruits, and drinks and enjoy some quality time together.
Explore the outdoors as a family with your bike!
Cycling is a great way to explore the countryside, and it’s a fun activity for everyone in the family. It is also a quick and effective way to explore the place while also enjoying the outdoors. Make sure everyone has a helmet, is protected and alert, and stays safe on the roads.
These are just a few ideas to get you started. With so much to do in the UK, there’s no excuse for boredom during the school break. Whether you prefer indoor or outdoor activities, there’s something for everyone to enjoy this Easter break!
