February half term events for all the family

Children building a den

What better way to get the kids into nature this February half term than with some family activities in your favourite place? There are loads of things to do with kids in places we care for – even when downpours send you inside.

Your adventure starts here.

Unearth new outdoor adventures

We’re surrounded by outdoor activities for kids at the places we look after and there’s a trail for every kind of explorer. Track a wild animal at Sheringham Park in Norfolk and find out about the habitats all sorts of curious creatures live in. Trees make a wonderful playground, and you can plant more of these natural climbing frames at South Down Farm at East Soar, Devon. You can also make your own bird boxes at Lydford Gorge and Carding Mill Valley.

The fun doesn’t stop when the rain starts

When the weather turns, check out our indoor activities for everyone to enjoy. Bake your cares away at some cosy workshops for bread and gingerbread making at East Riddlesten Hall in Keighley, West Yorkshire, or get stuck in with some arty activities. There are family crafts happening at Wightwick Manor, Wolverhampton, where you can make some traditional Victorian themed souvenirs. There are also workshops going on to celebrate the signs of spring at Ickworth, Suffolk or you could become a mini maker at Speke Hall, near Liverpool.

Fun with '50 things'

Get the kids back into nature with '50 things to do before you’re 11¾'. Make homes for bugs and discover how you can help creatures and critters at places like Horsey Windpump in the Norfolk Broads and Lydford Gorge in Devon. Go wild at places like Quarry Bank, Cheshire where you can join in with natural history adventures, and Coleton Fishacre, Devon, where you can join in with Wild Wednesday led by a team of rangers to complete a '50 things' activity together.
