Looking for May half term holiday ideas? It’s been a really busy month for most, with GCSE’s and SATs starting, so this May half term is the perfect opportunity to relax and unwind (sorry if you’ve still got revision to do!) Hopefully the weather will hold up and we’ll all get to spend it outside in the sunshine!
There’s lots to do in West Sussex, and we’ve picked out some exciting May half term holiday ideas for the kids and the whole family to enjoy.
It’s Princess and Pirates week at Fishers Farm starting on the 26th. See if you can find the hidden treasure on the Pirate Trail, and then enjoy a sing-a-long with the Princess on stage in the theatre.
If you do go, don’t forget to dress up in your best pirate and princess outfits for the adventure. If you need an outfit, we have colour your own pirate or princess outfit, and we have some gorgeous tutu’s definitely fit for a princess!
One of my favourite things to do as a kid was strawberry picking.
Roundstone Farm’s pick your own is opening 25th May until late September. They’ve got loads of different fruit and veg that you can pick (depending on the season) and you only pay for what you take home with you! On a sunny day it really is a wonderful family activity.
There are a couple of shows on this May half term that the kids will definitely enjoy. One of them is ‘Milkshake Live: The Magic Story Book’ which is on at the Pavilion Theatre in Worthing. It’s got characters from Milkshake such as Bob the Builder and Fireman Sam, as well as lots of others, re-imagining classic fairy tales with a mixture of singing, dancing and storytelling. The other show is Doctor Doolittle at the Alexandra Theatre in Bognor Regis. It’s suitable for children from the age of 7 and is a brand-new show with original music, wonderful puppets and lots of audience participation, so something that the whole family can enjoy.
I think one of the best things for a day out is going to the beach – fingers crossed on the weather! Swimming and rock pooling are great ways for the kids to have fun for free. Dry off with these beach cover-ups, and then you can enjoy fish and chips and ice-cream for lunch!
If you don’t fancy facing the crowds, there are lots of things you can do at home and in the garden.
This colour your own playhouse is great because it can be played with indoors or outside and it’s easy to pack away. We’ve also got some giant chalks which are perfect for drawing out on the pavement and they wash away easily so little ones can create endless masterpieces.
