29 Things to do in February with Devon’s Crealy

Need some half term inspiration? Take a look at the list of 29 things to do in February, curated by Devon’s Crealy park. OK, we may be half way through the month, but I reckon we can still get at least some of these nailed!




Josh Haywood, General Manager said: “Crealy has always been about helping families to have fun together and this year is no different. There’s an extra day to enjoy and we want kids to do something with it – whether that be active, creative – or both!” As Josh continues: “We know how difficult it can be trying to keep the little ones entertained during half term and on those rainy days so we thought we’d come up with some ideas! The list doesn’t have to be followed in order – mix it up to suit your own activities!”

So what is on the list?



  • Decorate your wellies with doodles of your choice.
  • Collect sticks for the ultimate pooh-sticks competition.
  • Challenge your mum or dad to a pebble skimming competition.
  • Dance to a song in your living room.
  • Play a game of snap
  • Take to the skies on the flying machine at Crealy. What can you spot while you are flying through the air?
  • Dress up as a pirate and imagine that you are sailing the seven seas.
  • Put some food out for the birds in your garden and see which birds you can identify.
  • Play hide and seek
  • Make your own board game
  • Make a Valentine’s card for your Mum
  • Make a kite for a windy day
  • Challenge your friends to a hopping competition who can hop for the longest.
  • Superhero Sunday! Dress up as your favourite Superhero.
  • Visit the animals at Crealy – will your family win a prize in the Fab February giveaway at half term. Keep your fingers crossed!
  • Find a puddle and search for living creatures with a magnifying glass.
  • Paint some pebbles with pictures of bugs or pretty patterns found in nature.
  • Enjoy the thrill of the Twister at Crealy and then design your own rollercoaster ride when you get home.
  • Write a letter to a loved one and deliver it by hand.
  • Get cosy with floor cushions and a blanket and read your favourite book.
  • Make some fairy cakes and decorate with icing and sparkles.
  • Make sock puppets and put on a show for your family.
  • Make a little theatre from an empty cereal box.
  • Make a den in your bedroom or in your back garden.
  • Collect 5 different leaves from your garden, dry them and stick them to your wall.
  • Paint a picture of your family.
  • See what the Meerkats are up to at Meerkat Manor at Crealy.
  • Make a friendship bracelet for your best friend.
  • Leap for leap day!
Some good ideas for those ‘I’m bored’ moments!

With over 60 rides and attractions set in 100 acres of glorious Devon countryside, Devon’s Crealy is one of the best family days out in the South West. We have had some fab visits there over the years – one of my favourite memories from there is the day my middle son, then aged about 2, discovered he loved ice cream – he stole mine and had a chocolate smile for the rest of the day!

We are looking forward to heading back there when the weather warms up a bit (the park is open now – I am just a wuss about getting cold!) – there is lots to do for all ages – rides to ride, animals to visit and adventures to be had.

    Aaah I love all these lovely ideas — make a kite for a windy day is so sweet — I think I might make a note of that and do it with the twins on a rainy afternoon!! Such lovely ideas — and Crealy looks amazing. Shame it’s so blooming far from us!!!! 😉

    Every holiday we’ve had down there we’ve seen adverts for this but never been. Maybe if we venture down again this year we will.
