Moviethon - …And Action!

After Monday’s action packed day your little ones are bound to be tired so opt for a more laid back day today. All kids love films but with some cinemas charging up to £9 per ticket it can be very expensive. So, instead of forking out loads of money for a two hour experience, organise for their friends to come over and hold a movie day! Nip to the shops and get them some movie treats to munch on and line up two or three of their favorite films to enjoy whilst you sit down with a cuppa. To stop them from getting restless later on, have a little quiz about the films and some games and offer small prizes for the winner…everyone loves a prize!


Sports day!

Get your gym kit on because today’s the day for a family sports day! Imagine egg & spoon races in the garden… first to 5 goals in a mini football tournament, and a tennis battle! There’s loads of fun to be had and with this amazing voucher you get to spend £30 on any sporting equipment for just £10!
