Sometimes the first week of the summer holidays can feel like the scariest in any parent’s diary. This year I am finding this out as I juggle work, the six weeks holiday and attempting to find reasonably priced childcare and days out that won’t leave me bankrupt! We’ve so far been really lucky with the weather and managed some time out with friends at the park, donkey rides and have used our shopping points in exchange for a day out at one of the big theme parks (which made it a lot cheaper!).
To help parents keep the kids entertained this summer and save them money in the process, Nectar has launched the Nectar Summer Picks website, a brand new resource designed to help families make the very most of the holidays. Aiming to get families away from screens and gadgets and into the great British summer, it’s packed with creative activity ideas and days out that won’t cost the earth. Nectar Summer Picks has the summer sorted – whatever the weather – at nectar.com/summer.
Let’s face it some days our creativity levels are languishing at the bottom of the wardrobe and so parents need a helping hand in thinking up new ways to amuse, excite and wear out our little adventurers and this video is packed full of affordable ideas to keep kids amused all day long.
Whether it’s creating your own waterslide, screening a movie in your garden, or going wild at Longleat Safari Park, Nectar Summer Picks is full of affordable ways families can enjoy the summer and use their Nectar points to help make their money go further and bust that boredom right out the window!
To ensure families really have a summer to remember, Nectar Summer Picks will be running prize draws until the 30th September, offering families the chance to win amazing prizes including Nectar points, PizzaExpress vouchers or a Merlin Family Pass. There are several ways to take part, from sharing your favourite Nectar ‘Summer Pick’ online or even by submitting your own ideas at nectar.com/summer
Don’t forget that, between the 23rd July and the 12th of August 2014, your Nectar points could be worth double, triple or more when exchanged for Double Up & More vouchers to spend on fun-filled days out this summer. So get online and find out what your Nectar points are worth and see where you can the kids and their imagination for the day. Best of all it won’t cost you a penny to exchange your vouchers and the more you spend on your weekly shop the bigger days out you can get.
