Half Term Autumn Activities

It's always nice to have some activities planned when it's half term as there's nothing worse than bored children so I thought it would be good to find some fun things to do with your little ones this Autumn.

We love going for long walks especially during Autumn as the scenery is so beautiful so we quite fancy visiting the Isle of Wight Walking Festival this year. With 500 miles of footpaths through fields, forests and coastline it has some dramatic scenery on offer. 

There's something for everyone including a Tiny Tot's and Toddlers Tea Party, a Fossil Hunting Guided Tour and Walking With Alpacas. The weekend runs from the 24th October to the 26th October and looks like lots of fun for all the family.

As Halloween falls during half term for most of us there are lots of fun events happening, we're thinking about going to Starlight Halloween at Crich Tramway Village where there will be ghosts, witches and skeletons hiding in trees, a special tram decked out in Halloween decorations, scary lighting effects and a spooky woodland walk. 

The event runs from the 25th October until the 2nd November.

There is also bonfire night coming up and although the kids will be back at school then I thought I'd include it as it's always a fun event to attend in Autumn. We normally go to one just down the road run by the local scouts group but I think this year we might try the Superheroes vs Monsters Bonfire and Fireworks Festival at Twin Lakes. It's hosted by Gem106 breakfast presenters Sam and Amy and is a uniquely themed bonfire and fireworks display, there's live entertainment, an 80 ft bonfire and lots of fireworks.

It's on the 8th November and you need to pre-book as there are limited spaces available.

Hope this helps to make Autumn half term lots of fun for you and your children.
