Spring holiday activities

This time last year we didn’t think we’d be spending a second spring holiday in lockdown. But while the situation isn’t ideal, there is now a light at the end of the tunnel. So while we can’t get away on holiday at the moment, chances are the kids won’t mind all that much if they get to spend some special time with you. Sometimes that means playing their favourite game (again!), reading their favourite book (for the 18th time today) or heading out to play on the swings yet again. And if they’ve had enough of that, here are some activities to keep kids of all ages busy.

Spring holiday ideas for all the family

Ideas for younger kids

Arts and crafts are a good way to fill a long afternoon and keep little fingers busy. Here are some ideas. Our pages on things to do with toddlers and children have more suggestions.

Activities for older children

Older kids may be feeling particularly fed up at the moment, so here are some ideas for something a bit different you can try this holiday. Our page on activities for teens has lots more ideas.
