The Summer holidays are here! The kids have broken up from school, (if they even went back at all) and we have six weeks ahead in which we have to amuse them, or at least help them amuse themselves. We have scoured centre:mk for some ideas to help out and keep those little ones smiling. There are also lots of reasons to come to the centre for the day, to take advantage of the great offers we have in our shops at the moment, get some retail therapy for yourself and entertain your tribe.



Get outside and active with these fun ideas for the park or garden. Who doesn’t love making a den? Kids will simply love these easy to assemble play tents, perfect for the little adventurer. Anyone for a game of rounders? A very British, very summery game that brings back some great nostalgic memories. Still as fun now as when you were a kid, this smart set is great quality too.
