It’s February half-term already! Just where did the last term go? It’s been a chilly start to the year and as always this can be quite a tricky school break to plan for. Shorter days and freezing temperatures don’t have to but a dampener on your much needed family time. Here at Minicabit we’re looking forward to taking the stress out of the upcoming holiday by taking you door-to-door to some fantastic attractions that will keep you entertained for the whole week.
Get moving in Manchester!
There’s no better way to shake off the seasonal shivers this half term than choosing an active afternoon. Jump Nation, an arena chock-a-block with trampolines has sprung up in Manchester. From the walls to the floors the whole place is literally jumping! Mum and Dad have no excuses here as all ages can get involved.
Meet Mr Bloom and more
If you haven’t visited CBeebies Land at Alton Towers since it opened last year, book yourself a trip to Staffordshire this half term using our Minicabit App and see a live show by Mr Bloom! Everyone’s favourite characters are there for your little ones to meet and play with. There are also some cute, fun rides featuring the shows they know and love.
A Minecraft Morning with friends
Getting your Minecrafting experts away from their computers can be an adventure in itself, but this interactive session in Harrogate hosted ScratchMyPi.com will bring them together at half term with other fans of the programming epic. They will have the chance to try out the game on a pint-sized RaspberryPi computer. It’s a great chance for you to get an insight into what’s so addictive about this inspirational game.
A Big Bang of a day out!
Showing off the explosions, reactions and action-packed world of science, Thorpe Park’s ‘Brainiac Live!’ will knock your youngster’s socks off! Watch the live show and get hands-on with a range of training stations around the park. From rocket propelled chairs and exploding bins, they’ll be talking about this day out for a long time! It’s just 20 minutes outside London and we can get you there in a flash this February half term!
The National Trust’s very own bucket list
So have you ever set up a snail race or explored a cave? These are just two of the must-do things tick off before you’re 11¾. Feeling a bit behind on this challenge?
