May Half Term May 21, 2015

Filed under: Uncategorized — wheredidthatdaygo @ 8:50 am

Another school holiday is nearly upon us so ‘what’s going on for the kids this half term?’ I hear you cry! Well cry no more for here’s the lowdown:

Saturday 23rd – Sunday 31st May

Watercolour Challenge at Dot to Dot, The Wynd, Letchworth. A fantastic activity for kids (and adults) of all ages this half term. Pop in to Dot to Dot any time during the week and collect your competition pack for just £3 which includes cartridge paper, tips on painting with watercolours and all the competition information. Watercolour paints can be bought there or they can be borrowed for a fully refundable deposit. There will be some great prizes to be won and all entries will be separated in to age categories starting. At 0-4s so get the kids painting and give it a go!

Saturday 23rd May

Letchworth outdoor swimming pool opens today and will be open every day through the summer. Fingers crossed for some nice warm weather this half term so we can get the kids down to the pool! If you’ve got more than one child then I’d really recommend checking with the pool what adult to child ratio they will allow in because last year it was quite small and they were pretty strict about it!

10.30am: Postman Pat the Movie is the kids club film this weekend at Broadway Cinema, Letchworth. Tickets are only £1, booking recommended.
