The long summer school holidays are coming up and this can be a difficult time for both parents and children, especially if you’re a single parent family.
Now I’m newly single again, negotiating six weeks of childcare time is going to be even harder than usual. I try to keep other school holidays as work free as possible but doing next to no work for six weeks just isn’t realistic with one income. Luckily Belle is now old enough to pretty much entertain herself, but it still means six weeks of trying to prise the iPad out of her hands while she’s sat in front of the TV with half a loaf of brioche balanced precariously on the arm of the sofa.
As a single parent who works from home, knowing how much time you really can spend working over the summer is tricky. If you work too much, you lose out on quality time with your children and they will inevitably get bored and restless as soon as you aren’t giving them your undivided attention. Sending them away to a camp or an activity day while you work costs so much these days that sometimes it hardly seems worth it and I feel as though I may as well have written off working altogether and watched TV with Belle under her blanket.
On days where I have time to take Belle out, it’s a whole other summer holiday hurdle trying to work out where to go and what to do. If you have children of different ages it can be a nightmare trying to find something that appeals to the whole family that isn’t Burger King. Belle enjoys most days out we have but trying to think of original activities is not my strong point. You all know how I feel about organised crafts. Most childhood memories are created in the summer holidays, so having at least a few memorable days out each summer is really important.
If you’re not planning any holidays abroad or you just fancy a nice treat, Thorpe Park is a great place to take kids of all ages for a fun day out and some memories. Thorpe Park boasts rides suitable for everyone from the Saw ride and other super-fast rollercoasters, to the little train ride which Bee and Belle had the most fun on together when we went last summer. Plus of course there is the new Angry Birds Land, which is proving popular with kids of all ages…
If you fancy going but you’re a bit strapped for cash this summer, never fear! I’m giving away 5 free entry passes worth £58 each, so £290 in total, for one lucky family to enjoy. All you have to do is enter using the Rafflecopter for your chance to win. Good luck!

a day out to the beach
I love to climb a mountain with a view – not too high so my children can do it too. Picnic with egg sandwiches and home baked cakes on top. Great sense of achievement and a nice fun work-out. A cute family pub close to the descent that serves seafood caught in the ocean that was visible from our climb. Bliss.
You can’t beat packing a picnik and just drive out and follow your nose. We have found some great places on our own doorstep.
a nice day out to the beach
May be a tad cheesy, but I love any summer day with my hubby and daughter :) I’d love to be able to take her to Thorpe Park though, she’s such a daredevil!
Every summer we have one big family day out (as a result of good school reports at the end of Summer term), last year we went to Legoland Windsor and had a fantastic day! xx
Going down to our local beach. Eating ice creams and paddling .
My little boy loves Thomas Land and I love watching him laughing his little off on the rides. But anywhere outside (if the weather isn’t too bad) makes me happy. He has autism and so is normally bouncing off the walls by day two of the summer holidays. Fingers crossed we get a sunny summer!!! :)

A day of fresh air and fun and it’s free! We do try to do Chessington once a year in August so I think my daughter would love Thorpe Park now she is a bit older. Plus it is only a 10 minute drive from my folks!
Mine is very simple – a picnic in the local park for free – a blanket, food and sunshine! Lovely!

We’re very lucky to have wickstead park near us so on a nice sunny day we can go there for free to play on the swings and slides – take a picnic and generally have a nice time feeding the swans – if i have a little extra we buy some tickets to go on some rides – makes a lovely day out.

I love a picnic. x
Round at my mums house, sat in her back garden (they have a lovely huge pretty garden), lite lunch and then something bubbly or sweet to drink. Just sitting there yapping and laughing, generally putting the world to rights :D xx
I like going to things like fairs where there are lots of things to see and do and eat :) or a family BBQ for a good old natter (and eat)
My favourite summery day is one that is spent on a sandy beach with the family. Whether it’s building castles in the sand, splashing in the waves or grabbing a sneaky break to sit and enjoy a book, I love nothing better, and what’s more, it doesn’t have to cost anything more than perhaps the cost of the car park and an ice cream or two!
Blenheim Palace, it’s has huge grounds
your rafflecopter states one person won this but it was for 5 different passes? Can you tell us who the other 4 winners are?
Thorpe park is a great place. my kids love it!
