Summer Holiday Kids Activity Days

Tuesday 30th July to 20th August.

9.30am to 3pm. Ages 5 to 11 years. £25 (including lunch).

The holidays are a brilliant time for kids, endless days playing and having fun.  But for parents it's a bit trickier, keeping children happy and stimulated during their extended break from school can be tough. We're here to help!

Every Tuesday from the 30th July to the 20th August will be a fantastic day of fun and rewarding activities to keep your child entertained. From space and science, to circus arts, marvellous magic and an end of summer party, as well as games, discos and a waterfight there's something for everyone at Zinc this summer.

Booking is essential. The children will be fully supervised by our experienced team of DBS checked adults.

What happens on the day?

Each day follows a similar pattern to give a sense of continuity and familiarity, with a different focus each day to keep your children stimulated and entertained no matter whether they do one session or all four!

We start with ice-breaker and warm up games to build confidence and get to know everyone, before splitting into smaller groups to get involved in the day's activity.   Groups are fluid and if your child has friends they wish to be with we will ensure they are together.

There are a number of breaks during the day for supervised free play and games.  A buffet lunch is served to the group as a whole so that we can all share our stories of the day so far.

The day ends with a short reflection session on the day's activities and final wind down games before children are handed back to their named adult.
