We’re off to Butlins at the start of the school holiday. After our Easter family adventure to Morocco, J has been lobbying for a repeat visit to his fave holiday destination. As a holiday at Butlins definitely means I get a rest, I’m not objecting!
Butlins is a rest for mums as the kids are so easily entertained. J and K in particular love the combination of free rides, playgrounds, the beach and shows featuring larger than life TV characters. It takes little more to entertain D, who is 10, so this time I’ve signed her up for an activity pass. This includes the bungee trampoline, go karts and climbing wall. Add in the chance to see show like Glee Force, right, and my pre-teen should be well entertained.
There’s a bit of a sporting theme this summer at Butlins to tie in with the Olympics. J will be taking part in the daily football training sessions as usual, and we’ll all have a swim in Splash Water World. D likes to try something different like fencing or archery: there are free sessions included as we’re staying at the Ocean Hotel.
