Not exactly the cheapest outing with your kids, but creative and a break from the usual is a trip to Color Me Mine.
We recently whipped up these babies there one Sunday afternoon.
The pair cost us about 50 bones so fair warning before you set off in search of your own pottery-painting artistic exercise. But, if you have a budding Basquiat on your hands, it may well be worth the hit to the wallet.
If nothing else, it's a fun way to kill a couple hours on a hot or rainy weekend afternoon.
