Buying reusable items can add up, writes Nicola Warren

Parents who are hoping to get 30 hours of free childcare for their three year old from September should apply before setting off on their summer holidays.

We asked EADT readers to share their favourite free family activity to do over the summer holidays. Here are just some of them. While the activities are free, many places do charge for car parking so check before you visit. And don't forget your picnic…

Pack a blanket and a picnic and set off to enjoy productions based on classic plays and novels on an outdoor stage near you this summer.

Nicola Warren says fat people work out too.
