The February half term, while being a welcome break for the kids, can be tough for the grown-ups! With wintry weather and Christmas bills still lurking, parents have to find ways to keep the kids occupied that won’t break the bank.
Activities such as baking and craft are all cheap to do (though messy) and kids really enjoy them. Start collecting boxes for junk modelling, and cut simple recipes out of magazines and let them pick what they would like to make.
A good way to help them burn off some energy is to get them outside, the internet has plenty of resources for winter nature trails and things to spot on a winter walk, so wrap them up warm and invest in some wellies or snow boots to keep their feet dry. Our range of wellies includes character designs for just £12.99 or let them take their pick from our range of hearts, flowers, spots, skulls or robot designs! Prices start at just £6.99.
If you have not had their feet measured since they returned to school in September, the half-term break is the perfect time to get them measured. Children’s feet grow fast and shoes that fit properly will not only be more comfortable, but will also help their feet grow properly. Every Shoe Zone store has a foot measurement gauge and members of the in-store team are trained to help measure and guide you on the right shoes for your child.
Our school shoe range has loads of designs to please even the fussiest future fashion star. For girls the range includes Walkright Girls Bow Black Leather School Shoe, and with 20% of the marked price, it will please your pocket too! For older girls, check out Lilley Girls Black Lace-up Brogue, £12.99, she will be hitting all the right fashion trends with these. For the boys the range includes slip-ons, lace-ups and Velcro fastening school shoes. We like the Beckett Boys Black Leather Sporty School Shoe, £14.99 and the Beckett Boys Black Whipstitch Slip-on, £12.99.
Of course, if they have gone up a shoe size, it does not just end with new school shoes! Don’t worry though; our range of children’s footwear includes everything you need for school, parties, outdoor play and even bedtime!
If you are planning to give the kids a treat over the half term, maybe a day out or some time away, get them looking the part with new footwear. Little girls will love the sparkle of Walkright Girls Black Sparkly or Pink Glitter Ballerinas, £7.99 and the boy in your life will be keen to show off in Moshi Monster Green & White Velcro Trainers, now just £7.99!
Have a great half-term break!
