Fostering In North West? February Half Term Activities

Previously we spoke about the various half term activities suitable for anyone currently fostering in Manchester, but what about the rest of the North West? Well, with the February half term just a few days away, finding activities that interest, and more importantly keep children and young people interested, can often be hard to find.

Equally, activities that engage and educate can have a strong impact on the fostering relationship as a whole. Whether you’re fostering in Liverpool, Cheshire or Lancashire, we’ve selected 4 more activities that will make you and your family have a fantastic half term holiday.

Half Term Week At Liverpool’s Museums

Perfect for foster carers in Liverpool and the surrounding areas. There’s plenty to keep you going at the city’s various National Museums. From poetry classes, Chinese New Year activities to learning about the solar system, there’s certainly something for everybody to enjoy.

Whether or not they’re interested in art or science, being able to provide foster children with an environment where they can be creative is extremely important to their future development.

Make A Big Splash

Currently fostering in Lancashire? Why not head to the North West Puddle Jumping Championships at Marton Mere Wetland Centre in Burscough.

With entrants being judged on their enthusiasm, style and height of splash, we do recommend wellies and waterproofs if you fancy taking part. All entrants will receive a prize, with the overall winner being awarded with a weekend away at the National Puddle Jumping Championships in Kettering. Even if you don’t fancy the idea of making a splash, there’s still lots to see and do at the centre.

Step Back 1,000 Years

If you have a buddy history buff in the family, then make space in your diary for the half term activities going on at Lancaster Castle. Receive a guided tour of the famous castle by costumed guides, then have the chance to take part in a mock trial and even become a judge for the day.

Den Building & Winter Survival

Give children and young people a real sense of adventure this half term in a wonderful forest setting. Being able to stay warm and stay safe outdoors is a very important life skill, so that’s why Delamere Forest are holding a number of fun and exciting events across half term week that show children how they can build a shelter and make a hot drink, as well as teaching them how to navigate using a compass. You never know, you could be looking at the next Bear Grylls or Ray Mears.

Whatever you’re up to this half term, we hope you and your family have a fantastic week!
