We are on countdown to the school holidays this week and I can’t wait for two whole weeks without the school run! I know the holidays are a little different for everyone in the North West this year but I’ve put together a few ideas of what you can do with the kids while they’re off school. Hopefully we’ll get the good weather to go with it!
