Now it’s colder, wetter and darker outside, it can be harder to get the kids out and about and keep the whole family moving. However, getting a bit of exercise can be much more exciting than a trip to the park! We’ve got 5 wonderful and slightly unusual ways you can stay active this winter.
Splatmaster is a brilliant new kids activity. It’s essentially low impact paintballing where slower speeds and more fragile paintballs make the whole thing safer and more enjoyable!

It’s outside but we’re sure you’ll warm up quickly once you start battling it out.
