School holidays can be the stuff of nightmares for parents who have to find something new and exciting to do with the kids.
It's even harder when you haven't got a huge budget too but a fun day out with the kids shouldn't leave you with empty pockets.
So we've had a look around for free family-friendly places, activities, events and workshops you and the children can enjoy over the May half term in Liverpool and beyond.
When is May half term?
For the majority of schools in Liverpool, Wirral, Sefton, Knowsley and Halton, break up on Friday, May 25, 2018 and return on Monday, June 4, 2018.
For the majority of schools in Warrington and West Lancashire also break up on Friday, May 25, 2018 and return on Monday, June 4, 2018 - but some return on Monday, June 11, 2018.
We've rounded up a list of events to take the kids to over the holidays.
