School half term is nearly upon us – some ideas to keep the kids amused and not spend a fortune!

In these times of economic belt tightening we are all increasingly seeking value for money. Here are some suggestions of things to do in Jersey during the Half Term Holidays that are either free or excellent value:

• If the weather is nice why not take the family for a walk along the north coast cliff paths, this is free and provides everyone with some good exercise and the views are stunning. Why not pop down to Jersey Pearl after your walk for a snack at Olly’s, they offer excellent value meals with a good choice.
• Now that summer is just around the corner if there are some nice warm days why not a trip to the beach, to keep the kids amused why not organise a sand castle building competition with a small prize for the winner. The original Jersey summer activity!
• Jersey kids can get free entry to any Jersey Heritage museum or historic site, all you need do is pick up a Flash Card. The Maritime Museum has lots of interactive exhibits and there will be child focused events being held over the half term. Adult entry to the Maritime museum is £7.50. Make the most of the free entry for children as this concession is due to be withdrawn next year to help reduce their trading losses.
• Jersey Goldsmiths is also well worth considering, entry is free and I believe they will be organising child friendly events over Half Term.
• Worth checking out Cineworld to see what deals they are offering on the Tuesday after Easter Monday as they normally discount standard ticket prices on that day. Many should be available at under £5 (even for adults).
•  If the weather is not too good the Jersey Bowl offers a single game of bowling for £4.50 per adult and £3.50 per child. They also offer great value meals, a 10’’ pizza for under £5 and burgers for less.
• For a good value lunch out why not try the Victoria in the Valley, lovely position and nice deck for al fresco dining combined with good food at a good price.

If you can think of any other activities please post your comments on this blog
