Cost Effective Ways to Keep the Kids Entertained over the Summer
12 June 2019
Any parent will know that it’s very easy to swiftly run out of ways to keep the little ones occupied and stimulated, especially during the spring and summer time. Eventually, many of us feel we have no choice but to revert to hour upon hour of kids’ TV.
However, this really doesn’t have to be the case! B&M have reduced the prices of a wide range of items specially designed to keep the younger members of your family engaged during the summer break. Read on for our top picks, including cheap LEGO sets, games, activities and plenty more.
Kids who love play-acting will also thoroughly enjoy this cool Cash Register Play Set. Watch them set up their own little make-believe shop, and challenge their adding-up skills while you’re at it!
We love the awesome Sunset Track Racer that can be built in three different ways (it even becomes a speed boat)! Set up a race track in your living room, adding obstacles and cool features with the help of this big box of cheap LEGO Classic Creative Blocks. The time will whizz by.
If your little one has a playdate with another racing fan, this awesome Rapid Racers Truck Transporter is superb. It’s a cool truck-shaped carry case that holds six cars and all the accessories they’ll need to turn any room into a race track. It makes tidy-up quick and easy too. Pop all their favourite cheap kids toys inside and they’re off!
Cool, Crafty and Creative
Do you have a budding scientist in your midst? They can create their own Slime with the help of this super cool Mega Slime Kit from Weird Science. There are many different types to achieve, including neon, foam, scented, glitter, confetti, glow and monster.
If arts and crafts are more their cup of tea, watch them dig into the Hobby World Mega Craft Box, which includes all the tools and materials they need to channel their inner artist or maker. Cheap kids toys have never been so creative!
For the quiet colourer, we also have a gorgeous selection of Lizze Mary Cullen Colouring Books. Choose between The Magical City and The Magical Journey for some truly beautiful designs.
You need never run out of stories to tell your little ones as you tuck them in. Take a look at the sweet Peppa Pig Bedtime Library, containing four Peppa Pig stories that will help get excitable kids to sleep after another super fun day.
