We know you love them, but come on, six weeks (in some cases longer) with your kids at home can be... testing. A week in and you've already visited all the parks, all the leisure centres, you've been to zoo twice and the ideas and the patience are running out.  

So what next? Well, how about filling your garden with a ton of inflatables? Come on, we've got the weather for it! And nothing says summer fun quite like a paddling pool, a water slide and a pineapple shaped sprinkler (keep scrolling, you'll see it). And since you have already spent a load of money on the previously mentioned trips to the zoo, you're going to want to get a good deal. Luckily John Lewis have you covered... 

For all the deals going on this summer, make sure you keep an eye on our deals hub page
