Holiday activity ideas

The holidays are here, with the inevitable question, "What can we do with the kids today?" Here are some awesome ideas that will take you and your offspring on an inspirational quest to discover the amazing Christian heritage of Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Northamptonshire. There are five outings to enjoy. Each would make an enjoyable day out for a family with children over 8 years old.

Alternatively, more mature participants could use them as the basis for a series of days out or enjoyable short breaks.

1. "To be a Pilgrim" - John Bunyan and Bedford.

2. Hymns of praise. Benjamin Keach and Winslow

3. "Expect great things" - Moulton and William Carey

4. "Amazing Grace" - John Newton, William Cowper and Olney.

5.  The lady with the lamp - Claydon House and Florence Nightingale

6. A heart-warming walk around Stony Stratford
