August Blog: Make the most of the holidays this summer!

We know the summer holidays can be an exciting, yet daunting time for parents. If you are finding yourself anticipating the dreaded words ‘I’m bored!’,don’t worry MK1 Shopping & Leisure Park has got you covered! We have lots of creative, educational ideas to keep them busy and most of all having lots of fun this summer…

Bake It Til’ You Make It:

Whether you are an experienced baker or not, there are lots of child (and adult) friendly recipes that you can have a go at. Baking is a great way to get everyone involved and is lots of fun, plus they get to lick the bowl afterwards! Grab yourselves some baking ingredients from Marks and Spencer Foodhall, they even have a new Percy Pig baking range which we know the kids will love!

Get Them Outdoors:

The summer holidays are the perfect time to get the kids out of the house in the fresh air and do a lot more playing outdoors. JD has a huge range of outdoor toys such as scooters, skateboards, football sets and more. These are bound to keep them entertained for hours!

It’s Popcorn Time!

Sometimes the British weather can be temperamental. If the sun isn’t shining like you had hoped, why not take a rain check and head to the cinema to escape with the magic of movies for a few hours. Odeon has lots of great movies screening that the kids will love!

Take The Pressure Off Meal Times:

We know the summer holidays can feel like a lot more cooking than usual! If you need a break from the kitchen, and from doing the washing up, why not treat them and yourself to a delicious meal out at one of our restaurants including Bella Italia, Prezzo, Pizza Express and many others. We know there will be smiles all round!

With lots of ways to keep the kids, and yourself, happy during the summer holidays, you’ll never hear those dreaded words again!
