Forking out for school uniform and new shoes over the summer can be a little expensive so you may want to think about having a #HolidayatHome with Carpetright! There is no need to pack your bag and catch a flight abroad or spend money on local attractions to have a good time with the family this August, you can have lots of fun without passing your front door for a fraction of the cost.
Whether you want to build a cardboard castle or a furniture fort, getting creative and making a hideout with the kids is really entertaining. Sneak in some snacks and pop on a movie too to enjoy.
Rummage through the kitchen and grab your baking essentials to whisk up some treats. We have been making Two Tone Biscuits, Madeira Cake and a few other delicious goodies this week, the ingredients for which were all found in the fridge and cupboards already.
Picnics and Pools
Dining al fresco and setting some toys up in the garden changes the atmosphere a little and keeps the kids busy. While they potter around wearing themselves out you may even be able to work on your tan and catch up on some reading.
Arts and Crafts
Using up old cardboard tubes, milk cartons and egg boxes is a great way to teach the kids about the importance of recycling while letting their imaginations run wild. Why not try making bird feeders or other animal inspired crafts like our owls, ladybirds and stone pets.
Carpetright want to make this your best summer yet and one lucky winner will receive a Champneys Spa Day worth over £400 and a luxury hamper from British Fine Foods containing a selection of gourmet treats. Two runners up will also have the chance of winning a hamper too. To enter you just need to share your #HolidayatHome photo on social media, with the hashtag, and enter the link of the image on the website here.
