It can be a struggle to keep the little ones entertained during the half term break and even more so when you’re on a budget. Luckily, there are lots of things to do and places to go that cost next to nothing and will keep the kids occupied. Check out some of our suggestions, which are sure to keep the boredom at bay!
Why not pay a visit to The Gruffalo Trail in Cannock Chase. This can take as much or as little time as possible. There is an app to download for free or leaflets on site where you follow clues on a trail and collect evidence along the way. It’s a great way to get kids outdoors in beautiful scenery too!

Oak Tree Farm in Aldridge offers a fun and educational day out for kids. Set in 18 acres of unspoilt land, guests are able to visit the animals and enjoy the park all day with no entry fee. A feeding bucket costs an extra £2.50 but it’s worth it to keep the kids (and animals!) happy. Check out their website
