Autumn half term staycation edit for kids
Half term is quickly approaching and we're excited for a week of outdoor autumnal adventures. Our activities check list for a rural escape includes ditching the school uniform for long walks in the crunchy leaves, and if the weather isn't cooperating, maybe some stomping through mud and puddles!
Whether you're escaping to the Cotswolds for an idyllic week of cottage cosiness and leafy outdoors adventures, or taking to the coast for windswept beach walks and sandcastles, we've pulled together our half term staycation essentials for your little ones to keep warm and dry.
For Fairies 🧚 Pretty dresses for play and dinners
Half term escapes mean plenty of outdoor activities but we often want to explore local eats too, from cosy family pubs to cute cafes. Packing a pretty dress that's practical for play but also works for a family meal out is definitely one of our essentials!
For Princes 🤴 Shirts to layer and dress up
Half term breaks are a wonderful mixture of outdoors adventures and nice dinners with the family at the end of the day, whether that's in the local pub or at home. A corduroy or checkered shirt is the perfect option for daytime layering but also smart enough for a dress-up evening!
Fun graphic sweaters
Trade in boring school uniforms for all the fun of a graphic sweater for the ultimate balance of cool and warmth!
Cosy cotton jumpers
Cotton jumpers are essentials for layering up under raincoats this autumn. They're light enough to wear indoors and when thrown on over a t-shirt, warm enough while they play outside.
Jackets for warmth and rain
It's not cold enough for thick winter coats just yet but warm layers all wrapped up under a waterproof jacket or parka is the perfect solution for those half term outings.
