Summer Holiday Activities For Kids

Today is Henry’s last day of pre-school and in 6 short weeks we are entering a new era…SCHOOL!! You may know from my Instagram or previous blog posts, that I pledged this time last year to make the most of every day with my best friend before he leaves me to start a new chapter at school and making sure we had a whole lot of fun with a set of pre-school adventures. With the new term lingering in the air I am determined to make the summer holiday as much fun for him as possible, and I wanted to share some summer holiday activities for kids if you are also entering this 6 weeks and in need of some inspiration for fun activities for your children!
