Top toys to keep the kids busy this half term

Half term in February is always a tricky one – the weather just can’t make up its mind whether it wasn’t to rain, drizzle, be blustery or, if we’re lucky, sunny! That means some days in the house might be required – so what can you do to entertain the kids?

Here are our top picks for toys to keep the kids busy this half term
