What's On for Kids across North East England | February Half Term 2021

This post is currently being updated for February Half Term 2021. If you would like to submit an idea, please email Sam@NorthEastFamilyFun.co.uk  Nobody has paid to be included in this post however I have worked with some of the businesses mentioned in the past. 

This post will be updated with new events in the coming weeks so please save the post and pop back soon. 

This half term we are being asked to stay at home. I will say, try not to put too much pressure on yourself to keep busy or organise things. We plan on lots of lies in, XBox gaming and TV. There's nothing wrong with that. We will be adding a few activities into the mix though and I know for some families, lots of activities are preferred. There's no right or wrong way to do half term, especially this year. 

Stay home and stay safe everyone.
