We understand the importance of a little bit of down time to get away from it all. However, a lot of us are finding ourselves with a little more free time than usual during the Coronavirus pandemic.
So we've collated some suggestions on how to keep busy at home...
Keep the children creative at home with our print out activities and games:
- Cyril colouring
- Colour the Squirrel Squad by numbers
- Wordsearch for both children and adults
- Adults/older kids colouring
- Rainbow trail colouring
- Spot the difference
- Leads (snakes) & ladders
At Home Entertainment
We know some of you have had to rearrange holidays during this time, that’s why our entertainment team are working hard to bring our holiday entertainment to your living room! So far on our facebook page we’ve shared:
Plus, we’re going to be bringing plenty more entertainment to your homes so keep an eye out for more.
Keep in Touch
We love a good social get together (usually in a lodge or caravan!) but there are plenty of ways you can be keeping in touch with friends and family during these times.
Create a group chat. A simple task, but regular communication with your family and friends is important and what easier way to do it than bring them all together in to one chat!
Talk about your day and what you’ve been up to. Make future plans, discuss that holiday you’re going to book when this is all over.
Or have a virtual hangout with friends with apps like House Party which provide group video calls plus the ability to play games whilst you all talk.
We’re big on days out. You can’t beat a family trip to the local amusement park, picnic in hand, whilst you’re on holiday!
So why not pack your picnic and head on one of these virtual field trips:
There are many zoos and aquariums with live webcams in their animal enclosures. These can keep you entertained for hours!
Since schools are closed, there are more resources now than ever for learning at home! Some are live events which happen daily or every couple of days whereas some are resources you can access whenever you need them.
We’ve put together an example schedule with resources for a day of interesting learning at home:
9:00am PE with Joe wicks LIVE
10:00am Maths with Carol Volderman
11:00am English with David Walliams
1:00pm Music with Myleene Klasse
1:30pm DDMIX Dance LIVE
4:00pm Home Economics LIVE
We can't wait to get back to doing what we do best... holidays! But for now we hope this inspiration will be helpful in keeping you busy at these uncertain times!
