How to Make the Most of your Bank Holiday
Nothing beats a bank holiday! If you’re stuck for ideas about what to do with your long weekend, EuHu is here to help. Whether you want to spend it by yourself, with friends or with your own children, we know how important it is to make the most of this precious time away from the classroom. This bank holiday Monday also falls on May Day, an ancient celebration which once marked the beginning of summer, giving you even more reason to get out of the house!
To have your best bank holiday yet, why not…
1. Go for a refreshing hike in the countryside. If you’re feeling really adventurous, why not scale Scafell Pike in the Lake District, head to the South Downs Way or try the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge?
2. Take a look around some charity shops or a bank holiday car boot sale and bag a beautiful bargain. As well as finding unique pieces, you’ll be supporting the planet by shopping sustainably.
3. Try a relaxing or exhilarating new hobby. At EuHu, we love yoga, rock climbing, pottery painting, kayaking and even beekeeping!
4. Take a trip to a museum or art gallery. The Tate Liverpool, the Manchester Museum or the National Gallery in London are all amazing choices. What’s more, they’re free to enter!
5. Visit an artisan market and support creators in your local area. The Media City Makers Market in Manchester is one of the many lovely events which are taking place this bank holiday weekend.
For even more family-friendly activities, you can…
1. Go for a stunning, woodland nature walk. This is a great opportunity to enhance children’s learning about plants and animals! Take a peek at our Plant and Bug Hunting Kit for even more in-depth ideas.
2. Visit a child-friendly exhibition. The Natural History Museum in London, the National Space Centre in Leicester or Eureka! The National Children’s Museum in Halifax are perfect for keeping kids entertained.
3. Try a creative outdoor craft. For something super simple, why not paint some pebbles or create a chalk art masterpiece on the pavement? Classmates Ready Mixed Paint and Classmates Jumbo Chalk are perfect for these activities.
4. Go on a camping trip. Whether you pitch a tent in your back garden or head further afield, camping is sure to provide memories that last a lifetime. Don’t forget to toast some marshmallows around the campfire!
5. Plant seeds to grow your own fruit or vegetables. As well as being a lovely way to spend an afternoon, this gives you and your children something to look forward to! Our GroBox Window Gardens are ideal for easy planting.
