The sun may currently be shining, but with the British weather being as unpredictable as it is, parents have to make contingency plans if the heavens suddenly decide to open during the school holidays.

Indeed, many children are on their Easter breaks now and are preparing to embark on one or several egg hunts over the next few days. However, if the forecast suddenly changes and we’re left with heavy rains, parents will have to change their plans at the last-minute.

Here are some ideas they might like to keep in mind for a rainy day this Easter.


– Trampolining

Chances are most mums and dads have visited their fair share of soft play centres over the years, so if you’re looking for somewhere that offers kids plenty of activities and a chance to use up some energy all under the comfort of a roof, why not go to a trampoline park in Telford?

These are suitable for all ages, no matter how young or old your kids are, and are sure to entertain them for hours on end.

They can take part in classes, attend disco sessions, or just have a good bounce around the trampolines with their friends.


– Museums

Making sure the kids are kept amused day in, day out during school holidays can end up being expensive, which is why taking advantage of the many free museums in the UK is a good idea. Visiting them is also a great opportunity to teach your kids exciting new things.

The Royal Armouries in Leeds is a good choice for those keen on learning more about war-time weapons over the centuries; the National Football Museum in Manchester is ideal for footy fans; and the Natural History Museum in London is renowned for its fantastic exhibitions, ranging from its displays about space to dinosaurs.
