Family at a fair


Just when you’d got over the Easter bank holiday, there’s another one right around the corner. Yes, on 1st May, it’s May Day which means another three day weekend! We’re so excited to get some more down-time and chill out with our nearest and dearest!

If you’re not quite sure how to fill that extra day next week, you’ve come to the right place. Luckily for you, we’ve got some fantastic ideas that will help you along the way. After all, a bank holiday is the perfect time to get together with family and just enjoy the day. Not sure where to start? Well, check out some of these ideas!



1. Visit a theme park

All kids love a trip to a theme park and there are so many different ones around that you’ll be spoilt for choice. Whether you prefer the thrill of exciting fair rides or the more relaxing merry-go-rounds there is sure to be something that everyone will enjoy. Once you find the perfect theme park for all the family why not book ahead and make sure that you grab a family spot?

2. Arrange a family tea party

Since the weather is finally picking up, you may well want to arrange a fun tea party. It’s a great excuse to get the entire family together so that you can really spend some quality time with one another. If you want to make things extra special, you could even get some candles to decorate the table – Caramel Cupcake would fit the mood nicely alongside all the yummy cakes! Why not add a colourful table covering and fancy crockery – a bit like an Alice in Wonderland tea party. It’s these little touches that really do make all the difference.


3. Take a trip to the farm

Spring time is the perfect season to go see some animals. Right about now, you should find that many local farms have newborns that you can visit. From lambs to chicks, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. Have a look for a farm nearby that offers the chance for your kids to see the animals in their natural surroundings and perhaps even pet them. Your children will love this engaging experience!

4. Dance around the maypole

Of course, it’s traditional to dance around the maypole during this holiday. You may well find that there is a community maypole event near you that you can attend. Your kids will love learning about the history of this while dancing around a little too. If there are no events in your area, you could always improvise and make your own maypole in the garden. (Hint: All you will need is a parasol and some ribbon!)


5. Check out some vintage cars

If you’re a classic car geek, there are lots of car shows around on May Day so you’ll get a chance to see some rare and wonderful motors. This is the perfect family day out since it really does have everything — great food and excellent entertainment. What’s more, if you’re looking for a new investment vehicle, you might just find it here. Again, it’s well worth booking tickets in advance.


6. Try something totally thrilling!

Finally, if you’re a daring family, we have a fantastic idea for you. Why not try something truly thrilling for a change? You could book a zorbing session or maybe just a tree-top adventure course. Doing something active as a family means that you will get a chance to bond and really have an awesome time too. The May Bank Holiday is the perfect excuse to try something that you never would have before now. Go on!
