Things To Do
Keeping the little blighters busy can be difficult, can't it?
Times such as half-term and school holidays can be the worst for parents, grand parents as well as uncles and aunts across Swindon if they can't think of anything to stop the kids wrecking the house with boredom.
So if you're in that category, we sympathise - and here's a few ideas.
Kids' Holiday Courses
Details of special summer, easter and half-term activities and courses held at Swindon leisure centres.
And for budding Steven Speilberg's, what about a week filmmaking at Cre8?
Down on the farm!
Always plenty going on during school holidays, whether it's pumpkin lantern making during Halloween, Santas grotto at Christmas or an egg hunt at Easter.
At the Zoo!
Farm animals - big and small - around every corner + the world's biggest willow maze!
Take your cheeky monkeys somewhere they can really run wild! Open all year round with fun activities to do and lots of animals see.
Bowl 'em over!
COTSWOLD WILDLIFE PARK
Catch the animals at feeding time, jump around in the play area or take a train ride!
Let them rip at the bowling alley for a couple of hours. That'll tire them out.
At the movies!
Popcorn, Pepsi and Pick 'n Mix. Surely a kid's dream. All you need now is the right movie!
Children's Play Areas
Time to let young Billy and little Lizzie climb all over each other for an hour while you enjoy a well earned break.
Pop in and Paint
Quite a recent invention that has become very popular. Look out for the adults enjoying themselves more than the kids.
Chuck them in the pool
MASTER PLASTER CASTERS
A chance to have fun while creating your very own work of art
You haven't lived as a kid if you haven't done the Domebusters at the Oasis.
And...for those still desperate!
