School kids will soon be off for 2 weeks …. aughhhh!
Any plans? HELP!March 9, 2008 at 11:35 pm #57254
A trip to the movies to see Horton Hears a who!
My dh will have a week or more off work so I plan to be out of the house as he will be doing loads of DIY, so all "out of the house" idea please girlsMarch 10, 2008 at 1:44 pm #57291scole1Member
or even a trip to newbridge, indoor minigolf in tougher business park….that would be a day out go to the newbridge silverware showroomsfor mammy and they have a new shopping centre like dundrum obviously smaller but great shops…..
a trip to the firestation, we’re going with playgroup and then the follwoing week the farm…..
take a trip to the beach clean up and also get a little print out of birds and get the kids to see what they can spot on the waters, bring a bucket and see can you get crabs and collect some sea shells and a little sand and when they come back get them to write about their trip to the seaside paint their sea shells that’s 2 days of occupying time…..
a trip to the library, do arts and crafts or a baking day…..or even if the kids are old enough get them to organise a yard sale of little things or even get them to get some friends together with your help write a little play and get them to do a little show at the end of the week….even something funny like the mad leprecaun who mixes up the pot of gold with easter eggs and the easter bunny who is so confused….something silly combine the two celabrations in one silly play…
Easter – have an easter egg hunt, make egg cup men, this will take 6 days boil an egg, get them to eat the inside then paint the shells, get cotton wool, water it get some cress seeds and grow hair….. egg and spoon race….lots of ideas….March 10, 2008 at 3:45 pm #57312
Scole when your doing your egg head men, paint them before you empty the inside out, it will make it easier for you. You can do a great head with pop socks and googely eyes…..March 10, 2008 at 5:28 pm #57321
I bought a bottle of odlums muffin mix (just add water) a pack of scone mix (add milk) & some poster paints for painting boiled eggs…should keep them happy for 1 afternoon (now what am I gonna do the rest of the holidays ???)March 11, 2008 at 12:00 am #57362
some balloons, old newpaper and some pva glue…. make paper mache bunnies or Paddys day heads, you’d get a few days out of that as the glue has to dry etc..
Oh a plastic bag on a bit of wool on days like today and bobs your aunties husbandMarch 11, 2008 at 9:24 pm #57431
That magazine is great, it is free in the library, ther is loads of ideas for the break..

There is a place in Belfast W5, supposed to be brilliant, work collegue raves about it, its an interactive centre. It is near the Odessys arena. May be a nice day out, havent been that end of BElfast before, he he did say it is attached to a shopping centre, so feed them in there first.
Might try and get up myself over the Easter BreakMarch 12, 2008 at 11:33 am #57456
I have been there it is great, 7yrs up it is better for that. Loads to do & see.March 12, 2008 at 11:36 am #57457
I have just signed my 2 up for some activities over the break 2 afternoons in my local community centre & a family day trip to powerscourt with the local community development project & I think all 3 days will cost me 9 euro 😀 I have also arranged to meet a MM in imaginosity 1 of the afternoons but that will cost me a lot more 🙁
Between these outings & my stock of easy baking stuff I think I am sortedMarch 12, 2008 at 11:31 pm #57481
