Why not get there brains active with a little bit of groovy moving?  Dance classes are great ways to get your little ones active and tired out ready for bed!  Dancing is a fun filled way to move around and to have fun with lots of other people! Remembering all the steps will keep you busy and give you an ongoing task to practice them.  Sign up to local dance lessons. Project Dance North Devon have a plethora of dance lessons covering many genre's, so get the kids active and physically beat boredom.  Call Karen on 01271 308107 to find your local dance classes or visit here:

Want to make something for the whole family to enjoy?  How about making your own homemade pasta!  All you'll need is flour, water (eggs are optional) a rolling pin or a pasta machine. You could even compete with the kids as to who could make the longest spaghetti.  Cooking is a great way to engage kid's brains and the benefit is that you get to enjoy the tasty reward.  If you need some kitchen gadgets or a pasta making machine head to Cookmate in Barnstaple or call for advice on: 01271 308095.  

If frustration is building up and spilling over, take everyone up to the golf course and let them take out there angst over a bucket of balls and a club.  There's nothing better than hitting a perfectly aimed golf ball miles into the distance.  Let the stresses of the day glide away whilst perfecting your swing.  For a few quid you can fill a bucket, beat the boredom and even pop into the restaurant for a lovely family meal.  Portmore Golf Park in Landkey is a wonderful golf centre and perfect for all the family.  For more info call the team on 01271 309297 or visit: for more information.

If the weather is a tad inclement, take a detour from your usual shopping and take advantage of the undercover retail on offer in Barnstaple Pannier Market.  Open 6 days a week, Easter to September, there is a wide range of clothing, jewellery, pet accessories, fruit and veg, books and antiques on offer.  When you're done, drop into Cafecinos or The Courtyard for a cuppa and cake.....gluten free options available in both!  For more information you can visit: or:
