Dare you…to make the most of half term!
Hurrah! Half term is nearly upon us!
Although the weekends give us a small dose of fun time with the kids, it’s always a bonus when we have a nice long stretch to look forward to. While we’re not saying you should regimentally schedule each and every day (we’re firm believers in throwing caution to the wind here at Go Ape!), it’s always good to have a few things in the calendar for you and your tribe to get excited about. This half term, why not get out and about and do something totally adventurous, super exhilarating and – dare we say it – utterly daring!?
Make the coolest den ever
Growing up, we’ve all made a den: magical little havens where we would spend all day and night if we were given half the chance. Ours were usually made up of sheets or blankets thrown over the backs of chairs and held down with a stack of heavy books. This half term, though, why not try to create the den of all dens for your little ones? We’re talking indoor teepees, made with scrap fabric and long branches for the structure, or chill-out zones in the loft, complete with beanbags and twinkly fairy lights. Or, better still, why not finally make that treehouse you’ve been meaning to construct?
Go on an adventurous bike ride
When it comes to bike rides, we tend to have a few familiar routes we stick to: along the canal, to the nearest village and back… you get the idea. But how about venturing off the beaten track this half term? Get that roof rack on and get down to the coast, or head to your nearest forest for an amazing, nature-packed, off-road adventure!
Try eating something new
Here at Go Ape, we live life adventurously – and this includes eating adventurously! Give those taste buds a bit of diversity and encourage your little ones to try some new food types this half term. Whether it’s a vegetable they’ve never heard of or a new cuisine – Spanish tapas, Caribbean, Indian – dare them to experiment. Who knows? They could discover their new favourite meal!
Finally, what could be more daring and adventurous than zipping through the trees at Go Ape? Allow your kids to release their inner (mini) Tarzan… they will feel proud of themselves for stepping out of their comfort zone and daring to try a new activity – and so will you!
