The Ultimate Bank Holiday Checklist

With two May bank holidays on the horizon, you’re probably wondering what fun-filled activities to get up to with the family. But, if you’re a little stuck for ideas and need a helping hand planning the perfect day for you and your kids, then don’t panic. From wet play options to bike rides and garden games, our bank holiday checklist will have you covered!

Test Your
Wheels

For many, adventures are what bank holidays are all about. And, what better way to explore than taking your little ones on a bike ride? A fantastic way to bring the whole family together, you can even finish up the trip by enjoying a delicious picnic.

Get exploring with our Peppa Pig bike!

There's so much fun to be had with our Thomas the Tank Engine scooter!

Even so, riding bikes can be intimidating for children who are only just starting to learn. To help them feel comfortable while they take their first wheels for a spin, try a trike. Stable and secure, a trike will let them get to grips with riding before they feel brave enough to move onto bigger bikes.

Splash about in the pool with a pink flamingo inflatable

From football goals and swing ball sets to water toys and slides, there are lots of engaging options to keep your children busy, all in the safety and comfort of your own home.

Kids that are full of beans can even jump to the moon and back on one of our trampolines. The ideal way to combine exercise and fun, this toy is one way to tire them out for bedtime!

Fun In The Sun

When the sun starts to shine, little ones can’t wait to get outside. This bank holiday, why not turn your garden into a special play area with some stimulating outdoor toys?

A Bank Holiday Breather

While planning multiple bank holiday activities is always exciting, sometimes less is more. After all, there’s nothing better than relaxing in the sunshine. And, if there’s one thing that’s going to make your afternoon chill out a comfortable and calm experience, then it’s garden furniture.

Whether that’s a pretty patio set, a stylish sofa set or a beautiful bistro arrangement, spend some time finding a garden furniture fit that will let you read and relax with ease.

Luckily, little ones can still be kept entertained with a playhouse. Coming in plenty of colourful and cute designs, like the adorable Little Tikes town playhouse, your children can create endless stories with siblings and friends while you soak up the sun.
