Kids’ Treats (2)

How better to bond with your kids than to treat them to an away game with all the trimmings?
The question then becomes… what trimmings? Wagamama for lunch? Something from Wilko in case the action doesn’t hold their attention? You can do that, of course, but you can do better.
How much better? That will depend on their ages, interests and on where you’re going. Here are some possibilities for before and after the match. Try not to let that become ‘instead of the match’:
