Bank Holiday Bonanza: Our tips for a special day with the kids

This bank holiday might be a bit unusual, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still have loads of fun with your little ones! Whether you fancy getting out and about for a little adventure or enjoying something a little closer to home, we’ve got a few ideas that are perfect for the long weekend.

Have a picnic party

Who doesn’t love a good picnic? Eating outdoors with your family is an opportunity to relax and bond with each other in a beautiful surrounding. Get your little chefs in the kitchen the night before to prepare the feast, pick yourself the perfect picnic destination and then cross your fingers for the weather to hold out! (And don’t forget your Trunki lunchbag backpack!)


Your little ones are sure to love monkeying around at these well-established outdoor activity centres. GoApe has 34 locations across the UK and offers hands-on activities ranging from treetop obstacle walks to ziplining. Plus, they always have special events for little ones that fancy something a little less daring too!


Pre-Monday movie marathon 

Normally, you want to tuck your kids into bed early on Sundays evenings to get them ready for the school week ahead, but not when it’s a bank holiday Monday. Why not make the extra day count by holding a movie marathon - get yourself cosied up with some blankets with a big bowl of popcorn and enjoy the movie magic with your little ones!


Get green fingers 

Gardening is a fun and rewarding experience for your kids that helps them to learn about the great outdoors too. It doesn’t matter whether you have a back garden, a balcony or a windowsill - all you need is a pot, some soil and something to plant! We recommend creating some tubs with herbs in, they are really easy to grow and your kids will love seeing their hard work go into a yummy meal in a matter of weeks. 


Visit a National Trust

The National Trust has some of the best gardens, parks and houses in the UK, making them the ideal place to visit with your children on the bank holiday. There are plenty of destinations to choose from and most of them offer secret walking trails and fun activities to keep the little ones entertained for the day.  


Bank holidays are a wonderful opportunity to enjoy quality time with your kids. We hope you have a brilliant time taking on one of our top tips for the special day!
