School holidays can be really tough especially in winter. We have put a list of ideas to keep the kids and moms entertained this holiday!



State 5

If you have to get out of bed in this chilly weather- it may as well be to go somewhere extra cozy (where they also happen to serve amazing coffee and pizza)… Come and snuggle up in front of our roaring fire and enjoy a bowl of hot homemade chicken soup while the kids brave the cold in our play area or do some crafts at The Glitter Factory.
