Half Term Boredom Busters: 7 things to do with the kids this weekend in Liverpool
Half term is almost done but with a whole weekend still to come, we’re lining up more fun ideas to see you through until Monday.
With Chinese New Year, Karting, Podcasting, fun on Formby Beach and rock star disco’s, half term in Liverpool is still bursting with great activities to suit kids of all ages. The weather is looking good so we’re dusting off our wellies, trainies and dancing shoes to burn off some energy and enjoy some fresh air fun! Older kids can get into podcasting, learn more about our local beaches and wildlife and if all else fails, there’s fortune cookies and dragon parades to enjoy all weekend long.
Here’s 7 things you can do with the kids this weekend in Liverpool….
1 – Little Rock Stars Disco, Camp & Furnace
Fancy dancing to all the best Beatles songs with your little ones this Sunday? Get down to Camp & Furnace from 11am craft and art tables, facepainting, multi-sensory dance-floor, inflatables, balloons, glow sticks, soft play, and a top disco. Tickets and info here.
2 – Learn how to Podcast at Toxteth Library
Trying to get the kids off their tech during half term can be a challenge, so why not make it more fun and pick up a new skill as Toxteth Library holds a ‘Podcasting’ session on Friday from 10am. Learn how to record, edit and make your voice heard. This is a free session. Info here.
