August Blog: Make the most of the holidays this summer!

We know the summer holidays can be an exciting, yet daunting time for parents. If you are finding yourself anticipating the dreaded words ‘I’m bored!’, don’t worry Banbury Gateway Shopping Park has got you covered! We have lots of creative, educational ideas to keep them busy and most of all having lots of fun this summer…

Let Them Try a New Hair-do:
There is no better time than the summer holidays to give them the chance to be extravagant. Why not let them try the pink hair or the mohawk style they have been begging you for all year? Superdrug have a brilliant range of semi-permanent hair dye and hair gels / waxes to let them live out the hair do of their dreams!

Take The Pressure Off Meal Times:
We know the summer holidays can feel like a lot more cooking than usual! If you need a break from the kitchen, and from doing the washing up, why not treat them and yourself to a delicious meal out at McDonalds. We know there will be smiles all round!

It’s Time To Get Arty:
Arts and Crafts supplies don’t have to be expensive. Why not pop into Primark for some plain socks to make sock puppets with and they can put on a theatre show for the whole family. Or get some plain t-shirts and let them make their own masterpiece of an outfit!

Get Them Outdoors:
The summer holidays are the perfect time to get the kids out of the house in the fresh air and do a lot more playing outdoors. Mountain Warehouse have a huge range of outdoor toys such as cricket sets, tennis sets, scooters, skateboards and more. They even have picnic sets so you can have your lunch in the park or the garden!

With lots of ways to keep the kids, and yourself, happy during the summer holidays, you’ll never hear those dreaded words again!
