Seven Keys takes a look at the best days out for the kids during August.
If you’re struggling to find something to do with the kids during the summer holidays then you’ve come to the right place. Seven Keys have been taking a look at the places to visit during August that will keep your little ones entertained.
Let’s be honest, if you’re one of those parents who can sit at home during the dreaded six week holiday and listen to your little ones ask for cake after cake after cake, then you’ve got a much higher tolerance for your children than what I have.
Any excuse to get out of the house and go somewhere that can offer entertainment for the kids is a big thumbs up in my book.
Our top three picks are as follows:
Based in Darlington, the enchanted forest at the Hullabaloo Theatre has been inspired by the ideas of local children. The forest provides children with a magical space with luminous ponds, musical lily pads and storytelling trees. Not to mention everything is fully interactive.
Not just for toddlers, the enchanted forest has spaces for baby crawlers, right up to children around 10 years old who can play with their grown ups. Feel free to come and go as you please, there’s no need to book and the Hullabaloo Theatre offers a friendly cafe for the whole family.
If you’re happy to make the small car journey to North Yorskshire, then we cannot recommend The Forbidden Corner enough.
It is here than your little sprogs can let their imagination run wild. A weird and wonderful labyrinth of walkways, mazes, chambers and tunnels. It’s not unheard of to get lost on your journey. Keep your eyes peeled for the secret brass circles which direct you on your mission.
Originally a private garden for landowner, C.R.Armstrong, it truly is a wonderful day out with the kids and highly recommended by the team at Seven Keys.
You don’t have to look too far in the North, just to discover an outside landscape that’s masked in beautiful greenery, cascading hillsides and tree top scenery.
At the Palace Green Library you can take your little ones to see all our animals in their natural habitats, and even design your own drawings. It’s up to the adults to help the children learn, as it’s about time the whole family started to learn why these animals live in the wonderful places they do?
Suitable for children aged between 5 to 11, all activities are easily accessible and accessed on a drop in basis.
