3 Ways to Keep the Kids Entertained in the School Holidays

Posted on 28 Mar 2016 by Anna Scott
You may very quickly work this out yourself, but our Hive Books promo codes, The Entertainer discount codes and The Works discount vouchers don’t relate to outdoor holiday activities, but rather those reserved for rainy days indoors. If you don’t want to rely completely on films or online games for family entertainment when stuck inside, why not use some of our savings to expand your holiday contingency plans? Here are 3 ways you can ensure less arguments and more entertainment…



One way you can use the power of the written word at no extra expense to yourself is paying taking a trip to your local library, but as this involves going outside (even for just a small amount of time), you could also consider stocking up your own bookshelves too. One of our Hive Books promotional codes is offering you a very helpful reading lifeline right now, especially for teenagers, with 2 for £12 on a wide range of Young Adult reads including award winners such as The Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge and classics like The Dragonfly Pool by Eva Ibbotson. And when you order using a Hive Books voucher code, a percentage of your sale goes to your local bookshop (which is also worth a visit during the school holidays).




Craft Activities

If you want the family to get creative, you can choose from specially designed craft packs, or go back to basics and stock up on all your craft essentials, then plan your own activity. Today we’ve gone for the latter, and if you’re short on said craft utensils, you can use this The Entertainer promo code to get up to 50% off selected arts and craft products including a Jacks Super Craft Chest (was £20, now £10), a Grafix Mega Craft Jar (was £10, now £5) and a Bendaroos 3D Multi Maker Set (was £20, now £15), and with that The Entertainer discount voucher, you can save on more structured craft sets too. But don’t forget, in springtime, the outdoors is full of resources too – you could try flower-pressing for example.



Brain Bogglers Collection - 8 PuzzlesThe ultimate rainy day activity, there’s nothing that bonds family members (sometimes in the form of a ‘heated discussion’) than a good, old-fashioned puzzle. Whether you want to pop into your local charity shop and stock up on half a dozen jigsaws to keep everyone amused (just make sure they have all the pieces), or use this The Works coupon code to save on some new brain teasers, there’s plenty of fun to be had. That The Works promo code saves you 15% on your order, so why not treat the family to The World’s Most Difficult Jigsaw Puzzle (£5 before discount), the Rubik’s Cube Collection (£15 before discount) or the Brain Boggler’s Collection (£10 before discount)?


So don’t despair if there’s rain (and let’s face it, there probably will be) – with our Hive Books discount codes, The Entertainer promotional codes and The Works coupon codes you can pass the time with minimum stress and maximum entertainment.
