So the school holidays have started and I guess you could say this is when parents get into mother/father mode.

Oh how much I hate the dreaded school run in the morning or should I say the fact that I have to even drag my girls out of bed is a total nightmare.  You would think they would be used to it by now wake up and get ready for school. But oh no there has to be tears and tantrums every morning.

So one would think the start of the Christmas holidays could only mean no school run which means lie ins … WRONG..

For some unknown reason my girls will be wide awake at 8am in the holidays with a list of things to do as long as my arm.

Question is how do you keep 3 young girls entertained in the holidays? I can’t send them to play on the trampoline because of the on of rain and windy weather. As much as they would love to visit Trafford center once a week or the odd trip to Preston shopping to be honest the weather is a little of putting.

I’m thinking for these holidays what indoor activities could I do with them to keep them stimulated and busy enough so there not tearing each others hairs out. They would love to be sat  in front of the television for hours on end watching back to back movies but I’m thinking they need to be doing something different.

The question what is that something different?

What are you doing to keep your children entertained and happy over the holidays?

Would love to hear your comments and advice …
