This half term, thousands of families will be looking for ways to entertain the kids - and the rising cost of living means most want to do this as cheaply as possible.
To help you fill a fun-packed calendar without breaking the bank, we've rounded up special half-term deals, money-saving hacks, and free activity ideas for this February half term.
If you have any old National Lottery tickets hanging around, you can use them to get £25 off admission to attractions across the country this half term if you book through Visit Britain.
Destinations and brands taking part include:
National Rail's 2 for 1 promotion runs all year round. Buy a train ticket and you'll get two entry tickets for the price of one at a huge number of attractions nationwide.
A number of restaurants are offering free kids' meals this half term. Here's a taster of what's out there:
Some cinema chains offer cut-price screenings of family films at certain times, usually in the morning.
You'll need to check your local listings to see if they're available in your area, but here's the kind of thing you can expect:
Tired of paying money to see animals? Many cities have urban farms which are completely free to enter (though you may have to pay £1 or so if you want to buy animal feed).
Your local council might be running free half-term activities for kids.
Take Camden council, for example. It's running football, trampolining and badminton sessions, as well as social events for kids to just make friends with other children.
Manchester City Council has arts and crafts sessions, cat-themed fun trails, and a half-term 'playscheme' which has different activities daily.
Even if it's raining, a trip to your nearest seaside town could still yield other kid-friendly staples like arcades and piers.
Combine this trip with a free meal at one of the restaurants listed above, and see if you can get National Rail 2 for 1 entry to a seaside attraction if you've had enough of the claw machines.
It might still be winter, but there's still plenty of nature for your kids to explore in the woods, from creepy crawlies on the ground to birds in the sky. The lack of leaves could even make them easier to spot.
Give your kids a checklist to turn the trip into a scavenger hunt.
