Let's face it, the UK isn't known for it's sunny weather even during the summer months. With the 6 week school holidays (sometimes closer to 7) now starting, our minds are bound to turn to ways to keep the children busy that are cost effective and not too stressful.
Blackburn's Children's Centres may be the answer. With a whole range of activities for toddlers, pre-schoolers and under 8's - from Mud Kitchen, Around the World and Messy Play - there is generally something for even the most selective children when it comes to entertainment.
Below you'll find a list of activities for all Children's Centres in Blackburn and Darwen, complete with the addresses and phone numbers for each Centre.
There's a whole host of other activities across BwD too - the Library and Museum, amongst others, have arranged special children's activities to help see us through the holidays without hearing the words "I'm bored" too often. Please click on the What's On link below and search between your selected dates.
If you have a smart phone, there's also an app called Hoop which allows you to pick a date, a distance to travel and an age group. You can select free activities and also choose by category eg. Arts & Crafts, Animals & Nature, Learning, Getting Active etc. This app is easy to use and is free.
This is their website where you can search for activities or download the app from Apple or Google Play.
Happy holidays to you all!
