Things to do at home

For those inevitable rainy days, keep the kids entertained at home with these fun activities.

Baking: Whether it’s homemade cakes, pizza or slime, your kids will love getting their hands messy and making something with you!

Arts and craft: There’s nothing like some creative handmade art to pass the time, and there’s so many things that can be used creatively such as vegetables to stamp with, watercolour paints, and string to make their own jewellery.

Home cinema: Why not have a movie afternoon in your living room? Bring the duvets downstairs and let the kids make their own den while they enjoy their favourite films, and don’t forget the popcorn!
