Our favourite games for mid-term break next week
It's hard to keep the kids entertained when they are on holidays from school and even more difficult when the weather is bad outside. Fear not, we have you covered with our favourite games that will keep the kids entertained this mid-term. These family-friendly TOMY Games are bound to make midterm more enjoyable.
Whether it’s sat round the dining table in the evening or a family weekend away, these classic games from TOMY and Drumond Park make for the perfect get together for families looking for some competitive fun in the school holidays.
The hilarious fast-talking description board game is perfect for a family night in. Players try to describe as many card entries as possible to their teammates in 30 seconds without saying “rhymes with” or “sounds like”. The first team round the board wins. It’s loud, intense and brilliantly funny – bringing people of all ages around a table together.
For 4 to 20+ players, for age 12+ years
The next game in the Articulate! family, designed for kids. It’s the fast-talking description board game where players try to describe as many card entries as possible to their teammates in 30 seconds without saying “rhymes with” or “sounds like”. Can be played alone or with the main Articulate! game to form a family version for all to play.
For 4-20 players, for age 6+ to 12 years
The action-packed puff-power game from Drumond Park. Build amazing tracks and race your friends by blowing your ball from one cup to another with a single puff. Available in four different levels of difficulty, Puff Ball makes for the perfect family game for all ages. All the Puff Ball cups and stunts are compatible with all the other Puff Ball packs.
For 1+ players, for age 6+ years
Guess too slow and you lose some dough! The team game of sculpting charades. Each turn the teams’ sculptors must create the entry on their card. The first team to guess what their sculptor is making wins the round. But there’s a twist – the winning team gets to take a ‘plug’ of dough from the losing teams. The result is teams ending up with a pea-sized piece of dough. A perfect and competitive way to keep children entertained during the holidays.
For 4+ players, for age 8+ years

LOGO What Am I is the “no-questions” board game version of LOGO. Describe, draw and guess the brands and products shown on the cards. The first to reach the centre of the board wins. The logos and products shown on the playing cards will be recognised by all ages, making LOGO What Am I the perfect game for families.
