WHATEVER THE WEATHER If the weather’s being a bit temperamental, don’t you worry - we’ve got a few ideas to keep you and the kids busy all spring long, regardless of whether you’ve got sunshine, or rain clouds on your hands!


SUNNY ACTIVITIES Become a bug explorer: go on a bug hunt, or build a bug hotel & wait for insects to come visit you. Time for all bikes, scooters and roller skates to come out! Spring is the perfect time to explore in the sun before the summer heat strikes. Go bird spotting in your local park or woodland. Take a camera with you and try to snap a shot of every bird you see.

Celebrate the coming of spring with a visit to your local food festival & enjoy tasty fresh produce, straight from the farm.

16

Get inspired by nature - collect leaves, sticks, stones & anything else that tickles your fancy to create art at home later on.


SHOWERS ACTIVITIES Who says you can’t have outdoor fun in the rain? Put on your wellies & waterproofs and go puddle jumping ...yes, the adults too! Remember all those crafts materials you picked up on your sunny day out in the woods? Now it’s time to put them to good use! Make a bird house or a bird feeder to hang in your garden when the sun comes back out. Spring is the best time to plant strawberries in a pot and have them ready to pick in the summer. Put on a family fashion show - you’ll have a giggle, but also you’ll get rid of clothes that don’t fit & rediscover clothes you had forgotten.

AVENGERS: ENDGAME

THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS 2

Release Date: 26th April 2019 Chosen by Dela (Aunt of 4)

Release Date: 31st May 2019 Chosen by Cheryl (Mum of 3)

I’m seeing this movie with my teenage nephew the moment it hits the cinemas, that’s for certain! I could say it’s just to make him happy, but let’s be honest, Avengers: Endgame is THE movie of 2019 for any Marvel fan, myself included.

Having kids ranging from nursery age through to teenager, there are very few films that appeal to all three at the same time! The Secret Life of Pets was a family crowd pleaser for all of us, so we’re already looking forward to a family trip to see the sequel.

We know many of our favourites who fell victim to “the snap” in Infinity War will come back, but we also know that it will come at a cost. Appropriately named, Endgame will be the last stand of the original Avengers and may very well be the last time we see Cap, Tony or Thor. I predict tears falling in the cinema… It’s going to be absolutely EPIC!

son - which is no mean feat!

CAPTAIN MARVEL

DUMBO

Release Date: 8th March 2019 Chosen by Rob (Dad of 3)

Release Date: 29th March 2019 Chosen by Sarah (Mum of 1)

Hitting cinemas shortly after half-term, and before the Easter break, Captain Marvel isn’t a school holiday filler movie! An epic, with sci-fi action, violence, and some strong language, Captain Marvel is going to appeal to the slightly older kids (it’s a 12A), mine included, as well as us adult Marvel fans.

My daughter is a BIG fan of Dumbo, so there was never any questions about going to see the new remake. We’ve watched the original version of this movie so many times and when you love a story is always great fun to see the different ways they are brought to life at the cinema.

As the first female-led superhero movie in the Marvel universe, following DC’s Wonder Woman last year, this is a great one to inspire our daughters to build on those leadership, action, and battle skills. 20

My daughter, 9, loves anything featuring animals and my 4-year-old son finds the fact that they talk hilarious, so that’s already two very big ticks for us. Plus, if the first film is anything to go by, it’s sure to be full of witty humour for adults and it may even get a little laugh out of my teenage

The previous Disney live action remakes have all lived up to expectations, so we’re hoping this one does too. We can’t wait!
