Taking kids on holiday – fun-filled activities for the whole family

With the autumn half term holidays just around the corner, many parents are starting to scan the internet for the best cheap holiday deals around. If you’re worried about keeping the kids occupied on your well-deserved break, here’s a run-down of the entertaining activities and exciting holiday destinations which are guaranteed to provide childhood memories they’ll treasure forever.

White-knuckle water sports

If your kids are into thrills and spills on the water, you’ll be pleased to hear that most major holiday destinations now provide a whole host of exciting water sports to get stuck into. From sailing on the Mediterranean Sea and scuba diving in Egypt to kite surfing in the Canary Islands or water skiing in Skiathos, there’s enough to convince the most stubborn little landlubber that there’s more fun to be had on beach holidays than building sandcastles.

Take it to the trails

Kids hate having nothing to do. Battle the boredom by hiring some bikes and exploring your chosen holiday destination on two wheels. Not only is it a great way to keep kids active, but it’s a leisure pursuit that the whole family can enjoy together. You could try more challenging trails in the mountainous regions of Turkey or volcanic landscape of Tenerife or just take it easy round the stunning coastline of mainland Spain or Portugal.

Dive in with dolphins

Topping many ‘best experience of my life’ lists, swimming with dolphins seems to be an activity that people never forget. It’s a great way of showing kids the wonders of the animal kingdom in a fun and enjoyable environment and cheap package deals mean that it’s a far more affordable experience these days. You can swim with dolphins in the wild on Mexico holidays or, if that will be too scary for the little ones, try it in more sheltered environments in the Algarve.

The one-stop shop

Many holiday giants such as Thomas Cook provide breaks that are specially orientated towards keeping kids happy. Aquamania is a water park paradise with a selection of cheap holiday deals to resorts in all of the top family-friendly destinations including Turkey, Spain, Greece, Cyprus and Egypt.

Dreams of Disneyland

No one can dispute the magic that Disneyland creates for children. The Walt Disney World Resort in Florida brings all of the legendary Disney characters to life alongside some amazing themed experiences like the Haunted Mansion and thrilling rides such as Space Mountain. You can get some great cheap package holidays to Florida and there’s plenty to keep the whole family occupied for at least a week, if not more.
