As February half term is fast approaching and the kids are soon to be off school again, here are some of our recommendations for some fun activities to do with the family in Kent…

  • Take the family for a trip to Leeds Castle this half term for their activity trail to explore the castle grounds and all the wildlife there. The children can learn all about the owls, birds and even go on a mini beast hunt as well as exploring the maze and taking in the scenic countryside.

  • For a more creative activity, why not take the kids to Macknade for their Valentines biscuit decorating workshop? Visit on the 13th or 14th February for a free biscuit and decorating lesson for the kids, and a look around Macknade’s cafe and shop too.

  • Visit Hever Castle for their Emerging nature half term week and explore the stunning castle and its grounds. The little ones can take part in their pebble painting workshop, and learn all about the animals and wildlife as you explore the grounds.

  • Head over to Port Lympne, Kent’s largest wildlife park, to see some of the 900 animals that live there. Spot the giraffes, tigers, lions and many more animals that the children will love.

  • Go down to Chatham Dockyard for their fun filled games this half term. There will be giant versions of games such as hopscotch, naughts and crosses and skittles for the children to enjoy, as well as of course exploring the dockyard and learning all about the rich history that it holds.

  • The Hop Farm have lots of activities on for the half term week, including jumping pillows, the magic castle, the animal farm and the play park. For an day out in the fresh air this half term, the hop farm is ideal!

  • Take a trip to Kent Life to take a look at all the exciting activities that they have planned for families this half term. You can meet the animals 0n the farm, including pigs, ponies and alpacas and join in with some of their feeding sessions, get creative in the art studio, and even go on fun farm rides too. The perfect fun filled half term day out!
