During the school holidays we can find ourselves scratching our heads when it comes to keeping the children active. As technology takes over sometimes it is perfectly fine to allow time on technology for our children. Spending too long on technology and sat down can cause us to have back pain earlier on in our lives. However, there are ways we can help our children to stay active and put those computers down for part of the day. In this blog post we give you 5 activities you and your children can enjoy in and around Bolton.
Smithills Open Farm
Open from 10am – 5pm this fabulous family day out gives you the opportunity to see over 1000 animals. You can also enjoy a Ice Cream in the sunshine while at the farm. Tickets can be booked via their website here.
2. Bolton Steam Museum
Open from 10am – 4pm The Bolton Steam Museum is a world-class visitor attraction displaying the largest collection of working mill engines in Europe. The Museum is great for our children to learn about the history of manufacturers that powered the North for many years. You can visit the museum for free although a donation is recommended. Visit their website here.
3. Moss Bank Park
The park is filled with climbing frames and sandpits. This park is a great place to visit with the children. Our children need physical activity. They can enjoy the fresh air and burn off some of the energy they have and it allows them to explore new movements and it helps them to develop their bodies grow.
4. Moss Gate Country Park
Moss Gate Country Park is a large country park and nature reserve with miles of scenic woodland and waterside walks, plus nature trails, and horse and cycle routes. It is open all year and free to visit. You can feed the ducks which children always love to do and again it allows us to stay active this summer. One good tip is that you must take and drink water to stay hydrated.
5. University of Bolton Stadium
Bolton Wanderers have started their new campaign. They have started with a few wins and a couple of draws. We have supported Jon Bodvarsson for 2 seasons now and we hope to see him score in the next few games. There are tickets available too many games if you can go you can buy tickets here. Bolton Wanderers play Aston Villa in the League Cup on 23rd August 2022. Football is a great way to engage and connect with the community and create new friendships. We look forward to seeing you at Bolton Wanderers soon.
There are your 5 activities that you can visit this summer to stay active this summer. We can help with back to school health checks and care for all the family with chiropractic care.
