When you were little the half term holidays were filled with beach trips and bike rides. Now you’re an adult and the half-term holidays seem like an endless juggling act; a challenge where you need to find endlessly fun and cheap activities to keep your kids entertained.
We’re here to help you make your half-term holiday challenge easier though. Here are some fantastic deals, days out and holiday inspiration that will help you to make your child’s half term memories as good as yours:
Half term days out in Wales
Robotics Workshop, Brecon Beacons
As a special treat for your kids you could book them onto the Robotics Workshop in the Brecon Beacons. Your child will get to plan, construct and programme a robot for a special Lunar Challenge. The Lunar Challenge is not a cheap day out at £25 per child, but they’ll have an out-of-this-world experience and learn a little STEM skills along the way. Who knows, it might inspire a lifelong passion for engineering and outer space.
Wales is a cyclist’s paradise. For families the largely flat and traffic-free Welsh Coast Path offers a fantastic cycling route for you to enjoy. If your children are older, they might like to try mountain biking. There’s plenty of mountain biking opportunities in Wales, but particularly child-friendly spots include MinorTaur in Coed-y-Brenin Forest Park or the new rookie trail at Afan Forest Park.
Another great day out this summer is Bounce Below – an underground network of bouncy nets that have been installed in a disused slate mine. Bounce Below isn’t cheap, it’s £20 per person, but it is a good day out, and out of the 70 reviews the attraction has had on Trip Advisor, over 50 people rated it as Excellent and 16 as Very Good.
Here’s a video of Bounce Below:

As far as bargain days out go, you don’t get much cheaper than free. There’s plenty of free activities in Wales, including packing up a picnic and exploring Llanddwyn Island.
