We all know how expensive October Half Term can be especially as it's colder, wetter, darker and you need far more indoors things to do! Plus with 3 small ones we now go over the family tickets. So here are 5 handpicked activities to do in Dorset this Half Term for FREE!
Walk from Potterne Park to Moors Valley and back – explore the nature trail or the activity trail all of which are free! Take a picnic and make a day of it. There's also a play park at Potterne and Moors should they have a little energy left!
Circus Extravaganza Lighthouse, Poole’s Centre (Sunday 26thOctober 2014)anAnglo-French circus extravaganza the whole family can get involved with – for FREE! The Family Circus Fun Day is a chance to learn the tricks of the circus trade: how to juggle like an expert, fly high on a trapeze, cartwheel with an acrobat and hula hoop like a pro. For those wishing to get more hands on, there will be workshops in static trapeze, aerial hoop, silks and hula hooping from Polz Apart, circus skills for all the family with Jamie Jigsaw, a dancing bags craft workshop inspired by the performance of L’apres Midi d’un Foehn, Fish and Bubbles Juggling, Diving Acrobatics and much more.
- Poole Museum is FREE to enter anyway but in Tuesday 28th October from 11-3 your children can get creative and make nocturnal masks. Something I know that Olive will enjoy as she has been talking about nocturnal animals at pre-school.
Library – Check out your local library for FREE fun craft events during the Half Term week. Our local (West Moors) is holding theirs on Tuesday 28th October making Halloween crafts.
FREE entry to Monkey World Friday 31st October 2014 – for everyone dressed in Halloween costumes! Take your little monkey to see the monkey's!
What #freefun plans do you have this half term?
*BONUS tip - most garden centres have aquariams or aquatic centres - little ones love fish, turtles and star fish and best of all you can walk around for free! *
