A trip to the seaside is always popular with the kids – take a picnic to save money. It’s not quite warm enough to swim in the sea yet – but you can still have a paddle and splash about.

Find out if your local pool is doing special events for kids – some have huge inflatable floats that children love to play on, others might get out all their water toys.
