In Family

1) Play in the snow

Mini Moose land at Chill Factore is the perfect place for busy hands that love the snow. Designed for under 4’s, little ones can navigate the snowy ice maze, slide down the mini sledge ramp, explore the enchanting snow garden or role play in the crooked cottages. Once you've finished you can warm yourself up in one of the many bars and restaurants on Apline Street where it’s nice and toasty inside. 

2) Find Nemo at the Sea Life Centre

With more than 5,000 sea creatures in 30 displays, there’s plenty to keep little ones captivated at Manchester's Sea Life Centre. Hold a crab or touch a star fish at their interactive Rock Pool experience and observe creatures including sharks, seahorses, octopus, jellyfish and rays. End your visit by letting them run off the excitement with a session in their popular soft play area, and if that's not enough, Legoland is just next door! At the moment, you can visit both SEA LIFE Manchester and LEGOLAND Discovery Centre from just £20 per person when you pre-book online.

3) Experience the ultimate soft play centre!

If your toddler loves soft play, they're definitely missing out if they haven’t yet been introduced to Play Factore. With the biggest toddler area in the UK and hugely popular dance sessions, Play Factore houses one of the best soft play experiences for mini people. If you're planning to go though, make sure you stay for lunch and order one of their fresh stone-baked pizzas - you won't be disappointed!

4) Enjoy the great outdoors at Tatton Park

If you fancy getting wrapped up and enjoy the great outdoors, Tatton Park should be on your radar. There are over 1,000 acres of parkland to explore complete with farmyard animals, indoor/outdoor play area, a mansion, and a maze. Book a place on their popular welly walk taking place on February 23rd (recommended for children aged 3-5 years) - a fascinating journey through the woodland where you'll learn all about Tatton Park’s magnificent nature and wildlife.

5) See ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ at The Lowry Theatre

Head to The Lowry to catch one of the most popular children’s bedtime stories ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ as it takes to the stage between the 22nd and  24th of February. The show features a menagerie of 75 lovable puppets, faithfully adapting four of Eric Carle’s stories. It's selling out quickly though, so hurry before he wriggles away!
