When we thought that we were going to spend the rest of the Summer holiday staying home with chicken pox, we all felt demotivated. Can you imagine staying at home for 6 weeks in this heat with 2 bored kids, while chucking £200 worth (the amount we couldn't salvage) of holiday away? Luckily Abby healed up quickly, and we get to go away tonight! Yay!
Although holidays can be expensive, we should really try to go away for a break to refresh ourselves from all the hard work during the year. If you know where to look at, you can actually find some amazing deals to help your family, especially the children, get through this Summer holiday without emptying your purse.
For example, if you fancy taking your family to one/ few/ all of Merlin Entertainments' attractions (including Sea Life, Legoland, Warwick Castle, Alton Towers, etc), check out the CBeebies Magazines! From now until the 7th October 2014, you can find 2, that is TWO vouchers for kids to go free to a different Merlin Entertainments attraction (see below for further details). And instead of force feeding yourself boxes of cereals, the kids can actually have fun with the £2.99 each magazine, which comes with gifts, stickers, stories and lots of other activities to keep them occupied too!
