Do you live in or around the Birmingham area?

We’ve made a list of some great ideas for activities and days out in Birmingham for you to mull over. There are lots of fun-filled activities to help burn off your children’s energy and some are educational too. We hope they help to make those back-to-school stories extra interesting and that you enjoy the Easter break as a family.

Birmingham Easter Sports Camp, Nechells Wellbeing Centre
If you have some budding Olympians or sports stars on your hands, this Easter sports camp is a great way for the kids to excel in what they do best.

We hope you have a cracking Easter break with the kids and find this list of activities useful. Remember, that spending time at home together as a family is also a nice thing to do. You can cook together, play games and tell stories. This quote from Niki Taylor @NikiTaylorInc describes it perfectly: “Stick to the basics, hold on to your family and friends – they will never go out of fashion.”
