What’s on in FebruaryOur tips to keep your kids entertained this mid term

We’ve made our What’s On Guide for this month a mid term special.

With local schools off next week, we thought we would give you a few ideas of where you and your family can jump on the bus and explore over the coming days.

1. See a film
The Lego Move 2: The second part is out, just in time for the holidays.  It’s sure to make the whole family laugh so why not hop on the bus to a cinema in a different part of town and make a day of the outing.

2. Learn about our beautiful city
You don’t need to be a visitor to take your family for a trip on an Edinburgh Bus Tour.  It’s a great way to learn about the place you live and experience the views from the top deck.  Your kids will love the Horrible Histories commentary on the City Sightseeing tour. It includes of the gory stories of Edinburgh’s history that they will love.

3. Visit Dolly and her friends
The National Museum of Scotland has opened the final three galleries of an £80m redevelopment of the 152-year-old institution so it’s the perfect time to pay a visit if your haven’t been for a while. See Dolly the sheep and the Robot exhibition, take part in their mid term activities or simpy relive happy memories of your childhood visits.

4. Get outdoors
Tire your kids out by letting them run wild for a few hours. Run up hills, have a game of football or catch the views from the top of Arthur Seat.

Arthur Seat buses: 2, 6, 14, 30, 33, 35
Blackford Hill buses: 24, 38, 41
