Time to keep the kids busy

Rutherglen Reformer - - Intimations -

There is so much for young peo­ple un­der the age of 16 to do this Oc­to­ber week.

And most chil­dren have a busy so­cial life with the clubs and groups they are in­volved in.

Dur­ing the Oc­to­ber week there is so much to get up to.

Why not let your young­ster turn their hand to a week of drama at a school where they can ex­press them­selves through mu­sic, act­ing and per­form­ing.

There are drama clubs for tiny tots and teenagers that will give them a week to re­mem­ber.

And for the lit­tle ones why not head in­doors if the au­tumn weather is be­ing un­kind and take in some leisure ac­tiv­i­ties.

Soft­play is a great way of giv­ing the kids some­thing to keep them busy and at the same time you can sit back and re­lax with a good book and a cuppa while they run around and have a ball in the swamp pit or mak­ing new friends as they play.

And leisure cen­tres of­fer kids clubs dur­ing the break where they can swim, play sport and meet their friends to keep ac­tive and healthy.

Arts and crafts are al­ways a big hit with the young­sters so why not sign them up to get cre­ative dur­ing the Oc­to­ber week.

Some venues let the chil­dren cre­ate their own ar­tas­tic paint­ings and mod­els as part of the fun.

They can then keep their cre­ation as a sou­venir to take pride of place in the home.

And re­mem­ber there’s no need to spend a for­tune as there is plenty to see and ac­tiv­i­ties to take part in dur­ing the hol­i­days.

Why not go out on a na­ture trail and head out for an ad­ven­ture to one of the free parks in Ayr­shire.

There are a wealth of ac­tiv­i­ties be­ing of­fered at the parks this Oc­to­ber break when Rangers are of­fer­ing young­sters the chance to feed some of the wildlife in the parks.

So get out there and get the young­sters busy this hol­i­day.
