What To Do With The Kids Around Cardiff This Weekend

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.

Here are some ideas for this weekend.  Just click on the image for further information.
