Stuck in a rut when it comes to family holidays? Bored of always suggesting the same activities or days out? Seek a little inspiration from some of the UK’s best providers of fun for the whole family and you’re sure to soon be bursting with inspiration.

It doesn’t matter where your interests lie or what kind of attractions your grandchildren enjoy, there’s sure to be the perfect solution for your next rainy day or annual holiday. All you need to do is be prepared to open yourself up to new experiences.

Looking after little ones

If you’re in charge of keeping some little ones entertained and engaged, you will find Days Out with the Kids helpful. This site is jam packed with all kinds of different events, attractions and venues, all offering entertainment that is child-friendly and a lot of fun. You can search for attractions by region and narrow down your choices in a few easy steps. The National Trust is another handy place to search for ideas as it lists a huge number of quality days out and attractions for kids of all ages. Whether you’re looking for lovely places to picnic and play or you’re on the hunt for thrills and spills, you’ll be spoilt for choice on their informative website.

Entertaining a whole family can sometimes be a rather expensive business, so you might like to have a look at the great list of 101 free things to do with a family collated by Valerie Amundsen for Yahoo. You’ll find even more great suggestions and child-savvy tips from Parents, which has a list of the top 20 things you can do with your grandchildren this weekend.

Ways to enjoy yourself at home

Having fun isn’t always about getting out of the house. Having a picnic or barbeque in your own back garden or setting up a games evening or sports afternoon is a great way to get the whole family involved. Cater to family members of all ages by choosing multi-layered activities and making sure there’s a task for everyone. If you’re struggling to think of appropriate games or entertainments, Family Education has a fantastic list of both outdoor and indoor games. There’s also plenty of inspiration to be found from Mrs Fields’ Secrets, which lists 10 fun games for the whole family.

Family movie nights are a good way to get everyone together, especially if you spend some time making snacks from scratch. Pop some popcorn and bake biscuits before settling down to a selection of cartoons or children’s films. You can find a really nice blog about making sure family movie nights are more fun for everyone from My Frugal Adventures. Or you could tap into your artistic side and set up an afternoon of arts and crafts. This is particularly good for engaging people of wide age range, especially if you provide quality materials. Check out Daily Woman Talks for some great craft ideas to get your started.
