Gaming in the School Holidays

The school holidays can be a challenging time for both kids and parents. Once the novelty wears off, you’ll soon start to hear the familiar “mum I’m bored!” and need to start thinking up some activities to keep your kids busy until they go back to school.
Family days out are a great activity during the holidays of course, but it’s equally important to plan for downtime and give the kids something to do on their own that will give you some much-needed space to re-energise.
Console games on systems like the Xbox and PS4 are one option that is universally loved by kids of all ages. What makes these gaming systems so great for families is that there’s a huge selection of games available to suit age ranges from preschool to teenager, and you can either choose games that are played alone or team games that the whole family can enjoy together.
Why Xbox Hire Makes Sense in the School Holidays
Many parents don’t like their children to spend a lot of their time gaming, especially during the school year when they’d prefer them to spend that time on homework or other activities like reading.
In the holidays when everything feels a little more relaxed, it’s nice to have another option for a rainy day or when you just need a bit of mindless entertainment. Xbox or PS4 hire is a way to let your kids enjoy gaming without the expense of buying a console and the temptation of having it in the house every day.
Gaming for Family Fun
Most parents will see the appeal of something that will get their kids out of their hair for a while, but not everyone realizes that console games on systems like the Xbox and PS4 can also be a great way for families to stay active and have fun together.
The Xbox One Kinect allows you to control games through your movement and voice, bringing a whole new dimension to gaming – it’s no longer a sedentary activity sitting on the couch.
Dance and sport games are great fun for kids and adults of all ages and make a great way to get some exercise in and enjoy playing together as a family at the same time.
The PS4 also has the option of a virtual reality headset, turning games into an interactive experience that will surprise and thrill everyone from kids to grandparents.
School Holiday Gaming for All
You can hire a PS4 or Xbox One for the whole school holidays (stock permitting) – the choice is yours. You also get controllers, games, and everything you need to get started right away, all for a low weekly rental price. When school is back in session, you can simply return the equipment and resume your normal school-time family routine – so what are you waiting for?
