Our favourite half-term activities from Cordially Invited!

If you’re running low on inspiration (or energy…) but searching for some creative ways to keep the kids entertained this half-term, Team Bookends have got you covered!

We’re sharing our favourite ideas from Zoe Sugg’s fantastic book Cordially Invited, which shows you how to make an event and a memory out of every day.

If you’re running low on ideas or energy this half-term holiday, why not try a Cereal Party? This is the perfect way to inject some fun into an otherwise dreary breakfast, and makes for an extra-special start to the day!

If all else fails, a blanket fort is the perfect way to save an unexpectedly rainy day. Throw on a film and your pyjamas, grab some snacks, and build yourself a Rainy Day Den.
Even better, the den doubles up as a great place to escape to if the half-term madness gets to be too much!

For some old-fashioned, screen-free fun, why not dig out a pile of board games and spend an afternoon teaching the kids some nostalgic favourites? Great for engaging the mind, encouraging family time, and bringing out those competitive streaks…

To top off half-term week, we recommend a Pizza Party as a relaxed, easy-going option for entertaining guests or family.
A fun activity to keep even the littlest of hands occupied, and a super-tasty dinner all in one… what could be better?!
