What's On February Half Term In Liverpool

It feels like just yesterday that the kids were finishing for Christmas but here we are and they will soon be on their February half term. Half term begins Saturday 10th  - Sunday 18th February for the majority of schools in Liverpool. Out of all the school holidays this one is my least favourite as the weather is always rubbish however I have found lots of ideas to keep the kids busy this half term in Liverpool.
