Officially the last summer bank holiday, the extra day off is a chance to make the most of the last bit of sunshine before the colder months set in. However, after 6 weeks of entertaining the kids over the summer holidays, it's not surprising that many people end up struggling for ideas when it comes to bank holiday events. Leading discount retailer SportsDirect.com have made the task easier with their suggestions on some cheap and cheerful bank holiday activities.
The Great Outdoors
Teaching kids about the 'great outdoors' can be difficult when computer games are only increasing on the popularity scale. This year, Sportsdirect.com have made sure that there are plenty of online options to encourage kids to get out and enjoy their surroundings. Junior walking boots like the Campri Snowdon Infant Walking Boots are ideal for those wanting to make the most of woodland wanders and days spent exploring. For making a full day of it, pack kids their own picnic in a rucksack like the Reebok Logo Junior Backpack and head off for a day in the fresh air.
Another great way to get the family out in the sunshine is through sport. SportsDirect.com knows just how important it is to encourage kids with sport, constantly coming out with ranges to get them equipped for everything from football to table tennis. Whether it's a quick game of badminton at the beach or a kick about in the park, there's something that all the family can get involved with.
Rainy Day Camping
With weather in August often being unpredictable, getting outdoors isn't always an option. For a rainy bank holiday well spent, get the kids to make their own den and camp out in the living room. The Edco Play Tent makes an excellent starting point for a spot of 'indoor camping' - just add board games and hot chocolate for the true rainy day experience.
