Keeping the whole family entertained this autumn

After months of disruption, and children stuck at home for weeks on end, many parents may have been relieved to see their children head back to school this September.

 

As the days shorten and the weather gets a bit greyer, however, it can sometimes be hard to keep the family entertained at weekends and during the school holidays.

 

So, taking inspiration from some of the exciting retailers that use our interest-free credit facility to allow customers to pay in convenient instalments, we’ve put together some ideas to keep the whole family entertained this autumn.

 

Take a family bike ride

Quiet roads and fresh autumnal weather are great for family-bonding bike rides. Spoke Bike Shop is perfect for rapid downhill mountain bikes, while Jorvik’s range of tricycles shows that three wheels can be better than two.

 

Go-karting

If your kids have got a need for speed but you don’t trust them in anything that’s motor-powered, then a back garden go-kart could be just the thing to keep them entertained. Ride On Toys 4 U has an impressive range of go-karts, ride-on toys and much more.

 

Bring the barista experience home

As the weather gets colder, we’ll all be looking for more ways to warm up at home. If you are a family of coffee lovers, buying a coffee-shop style barista could make you the most popular member of the family. Interested? The Barista Club offers interest-free finance on all of their machines with DivideBuy.

 

Bulk up at home

Got a teenager that wants to bulk up now they’re back at school? With many gyms placing restrictions on numbers and workouts getting some basic equipment at home could be the perfect solution for your family. MAS Fitness has everything you need for a fit and healthy future.

 

Make some noise!

Spending wet weekends at home could be the perfect opportunity for the kids to try out a new hobby or teach themselves a new skill. If they fancy themselves as the next Ed Sheeran, how about an electric guitar from The MusicStore? Or if behind-the-scenes is more their thing, check out the state-of-the-art make-up courses offered by the Central School of Make-up.

 

Relax in the hot tub

A dip in your very own back garden hot tub is perfect whatever the weather. It could be just the ticket after a stressful day spent at work or running around after the kids who, let’s face it, won’t be complaining. AllSeasonsGazebos.com has a wide range of tubs to suit every budget and garden.
