I find that unless I plan something to do in advance, we end up getting up far too late and then wasting the morning – and potentially the rest of the day. It’s good to kick back at the weekend and spend some quality time together, isn’t it? But without spending a fortune. If you’re looking for some things to do with kids in Cardiff this weekend, read on. A couple of my suggestions are outside the city but well worth the visit.
