Yesterday, I took my son swimming at our local leisure centre. He's been having swimming lessons with his school so he was keen to show me what he'd learned!
We went to a family fun session on Sunday afternoon. Children and parents filled both the small pool and big pool (although it wasn't too crowded!) and there were inflatables, floats and small slides for the children to enjoy.
We had a fun time. It cost £6.40 ($9.89) for one adult and one child, so it was very affordable for an afternoon activity at the weekend.
While I was there, I also picked up a leaflet about the activities for children at the leisure centre during the half-term school holiday. As well as swimming, there are several other inexpensive activities that cost between £2.50 and £10 per child, although the £10 activity is from 9am to 3pm, so it's still very good value. These activities include canoeing, soft play and multi-sports, so they would appeal to a wide range of children in different age groups.
If you're looking for something fun and affordable for your children to do during the school holiday/vacation, why not check out what's on offer at your local leisure centre?
