What Do I Do During School Holidays?

There are likely to be holiday playschemes in your area run by the council, community groups or private organisations. There are usually a range of supervised activities including art, drama, games, sport and perhaps outings to local parks, museums, cinemas and, sometimes, to the seaside or a fun park. There is normally a daily fee and an extra charge for outings. Children usually need to take a packed lunch. Some churches, mosques, temples and community centres also organise activities during holidays.

The Break Out website gives ideas and information on activities for children aged 5 to 14 after school and during the holidays. Many of them are government funded and are, therefore, subsidised or free.
