Trans Pennine Trail (TPT) – Kids Spring Bank Activity Pack

Half term is just a week away, so TPT have uploaded their latest Kids Half term activity pack on to their website that is available free for parents and carers to download.

Once again, the pack contains lots of fun activities for the holidays that include making a raft out of twigs, making butterfly cakes, learning about Spring flowers and honey bees, and helping those at TPT HQ to celebrate the Trail’s 35th Birthday with some fun activities.

The pack is aimed at primary school children with help as necessary from their parents or carers, and older children may enjoy some of the activities too.

The activity pack can be used ‘on the go’ by downloading it to a mobile or can be printed at home. They're also happy to send out printed copies to people who don’t have a printer or are unable to access the PDF.  All you need to do is email them your address and they post it out to you (Info@TransPennineTrail.org.uk).

Download the pack from their Children’s page at: https://www.transpenninetrail.org.uk/welcome-to-our-childrens-page/
