Get Muddy at The Bear Trail.
With all the rain we’ve been having it’s got to be the perfect week to tackle The Bear Trail’s  Mighty Mudder 2020!

Blow off some steam at a soft play centre.
Weather stopping you from getting out and about? Let the kids run off some energy while you enjoy a cuppa and a chat at one of Mid Devon’s brilliant soft play centres! Head to Planet Play or Waie 2 Play in Crediton or Monsters Mansion in Tiverton for indoor fun and adventure.

Free fun – If you’re holidaying on a budget there’s still plenty to do to make the most out of their half term.

Explore Mid Devon’s History.
If you’ve got a budding history buff in the family head out on a self guided heritage trail around Crediton, Tiverton or Cullompton, download a free Bampton Family Town Trail or pop into the free to visit Bampton Heritage and Visitor Centre where you’ll find children’s activities including dressing up, quizzes and an interactive video game.

Go for a ramble through Buzzards Woodland.
Keep them learning with a homemade nature Eye Spy – choose 5-10 things, like a leaf from a particular tree or a funny shaped stick, for them to look out for on your walk. If the weather turns, head back home and create a piece of woodland art with your finds!

Have a go at geo-caching.
Who doesn’t love a treasure hunt? The perfect way to get them out in the fresh air! Download a free app on your smart phone and hunt for hidden ‘caches’.
