Winter is a time of year that brings families closer together. Children get time off school during the Christmas season and adults often get some much deserved time off too! This means it’s the perfect time to spend some quality family time together, but with December being one of the most expensive months of the year for everyone, it can often be difficult to think of things to do that won’t break the bank. We’ve put together some suggestions on low-cost winter days out with the children for you to try!
You can’t go wrong with a family winter walk. Wrap up warm, put your walking shoes on, pack a picnic and head off on a winter stroll. The views that winter brings us are spectacular and if you’re lucky enough to find some snow, it’s the perfect opportunity to build snowmen and engage in a classic snowball fight! End your day with hot chocolates and roast marshmallows around an open fire. This option will also help you get some exercise during the month where we all tend to overindulge!
Take a trip to the cinema
Often the winter season means more rain, so sometimes it’s good to spend some time indoors. Why not take a trip to the local cinema to watch a family-friendly movie? You often find that during the month of December, cinemas showcase extra viewing of Christmas classics on the big screen, such as Elf or Home Alone. A cinema trip doesn’t need to break the bank; search for vouchers online, or take advantage of family tickets or discounted days of the week.
Most museums around the UK are free to enter, including the fantastic Natural History Museum and Science Museum in London. These make for wonderful days out if the weather isn’t great and you’d rather stay indoors. Museums are filled with fun and interactive attractions for children, and the adults will find it interesting too! You can often spend a full day exploring just one or two.
