It seems like only yesterday that your kids were little and getting underfoot, and their favourite toys and games were all over the house. Well, now they’re growing up – and those discarded and dusty old games have probably seen better days! The latest gadgets, must-see events and teenage fashions might be all the rage but the cost can soon mount up. Especially when they want the bank of mum and dad to help them out! So why not check out Music Magpie and sell those old games, CDS and tech items such as Nintendo Ds for cash, and put it towards something fun and exciting your kids will enjoy doing?
So what would you do with that extra cash? Check out some of the great ways you could spend it whilst creating quality time together
Movie days out
Give you and your family the real blockbuster experience by checking out some of the hi-tech movie experiences out there. Forget about the local multiplex and its stale popcorn-filled halls - think big instead. IMAX screens across the country give you an amazing high definition experience that will bring even the most fantastical movie to life - kids of all ages will be enthralled by the lifelike 3D views on show. You can even go beyond 3D – with a 4D experience instead! Select cinemas across the country now offer a truly vivid show that captures all your senses – with scents, shakes and sounds that transport you to another world.
Hit the high top
Circuses aren’t just for little kids anymore – they’ve gotten a lot more sophisticated than in the past. Check out some of the stunning theatre shows which combine magical drama, breath taking acrobatics, and stage sets to rival most pop stars’ gigs. And if you or your kids are feeling inspired by the great shenanigans on stage, you can even enrol in circus school (yes, really!) to try out the flying trapeze, high wire or unicycle.
Indulge your kids’ creative sides by letting them discover art for themselves. Invest in a membership to some of the national and local art galleries around the country – and explore old masters and contemporary classics, as well as inspiring up and coming artists.
At home younger kids will have all kinds of fun with a non-toxic paint kit that can happily show off their creative side, while older talents will treasure having a high quality set of traditional oils, charcoals or watercolours.
If they are not into drawing and painting what about investing in a good digital camera for budding photographers, or a handy digital camcorder for wannabe film stars.
So why don't you check out Music Magpie now, they take a range of items including clothes, CDS, DVDS, games and Tech items and you could be enjoying a family day out or indulging your kids creative sides at no extra expense to you!
