As Christmas approaches, parents and gift-givers are on the lookout for meaningful and memorable presents for the children in their lives. Move over traditional toys and gadgets (that many of us have too many of); the trend of gifting experiences has taken centre stage. Here are a few ideas that you can choose from for Kid’s activity gift experiences in the West Midlands, focused on the Kidderminster, Stourbridge and Dudley areas of course.
Adventure awaits in the West Midlands, you don’t need to go far! Gift vouchers for activities can give children a taste of excitement and adrenaline. These experiences not only promote physical activity but also help build confidence and teamwork skills.
Gift the thrill of adventure. Buy either a gift voucher for a certain amount or for a specific experience. If you don’t mind travelling, different Go Ape venues offer different experiences.
High ropes, low ropes and a nets adventure for the little ones are all available as gift experiences at Challenge Academy (in Baggeridge Country Park)
There’s nothing better than a day filled with rides for some kids. If so, Drayton Manor is our closest theme park, with the added bonus of Thomas Land being there for the little ones!
So many outdoor activity options here, that can all be purchased as a gift voucher: skiing, tubing, tobogganing, archery, climbing, paddling and bushcraft.
Indoor skydiving, diving with sharks, snorkelling, archery, high ropes, climbing, an assault course and more are all available here.
For a fun activity purchase a session at one of these venues: Wolverley Mini Pro Golf (spring/summer/autumn only), Wolverhampton Adventure Golf, Jurassic Creek Adventure Golf, Putt Above Mini Golf, Aztec Adventure Glow Golf, My Mulligans Birmingham, Treetop Golf Birmingham.
At Full Throttle in Stourbridge, Teamworks Karting in Halesowen, or, Teamsport in Oldbury.

Please, if you purchase from any of the above after reading this article, please let them know that Raring2go! Kidderminster and Stourbridge sent you 😊
Look out for another article tomorrow to cover ‘Creative’ gift experiences for children.
Before making a purchase, be sure to read the terms and conditions of the vouchers, including any age restrictions or expiration dates.
Consider the child’s interests and preferences to choose an experience that will truly be enjoyable for them.
Use the likes of Tesco Club vouchers and Blue Peter badges where possible! These often help with big days out if you have limited money.
If you want to gift an experience where purchasing the voucher in advance is not an option for one reason or another, simply make your own voucher, gift that, and then actually book and pay for the experience once you are ready!
