What to do this February Half Term

Keeping children occupied for an entire week can be a difficult task for parents. With February half term around the corner, we’ve gathered a few activities that could be useful or just inspirational at the least!

Museum of Science and Industry, Manchester

A great museum filled with everything to do with science and technology that will surely keep the children entertained for the day. Plus, this half term, step back in time and experience the sights, sounds and smells of Victorian Manchester with the museum’s family friendly holiday programme. See the power of steam with Engine Demonstrations, join the Cotton Mill Circus and light up your day with the Magic Lanterns.

Rock Over Climbing, Manchester

If your children are climbing the walls in the holidays, or even over the weekend, then take them to Rock Over Climbing. The Adventure Climbing Zone will have children clipped and ready to go with trained instructors on hand to guide them every step of the way. No experience necessary! If you want to work your way up to ropes and harnesses, try bouldering with no scary heights or equipment, just plenty of opportunity to let your little monkeys climb and swing free.
