5 Activities To Keep Kids Busy These School Holidays

When you’ve already sat through their favourite movie for the millionth time, here’s what else you can do to keep them entertained.

Looking for fun things to do with the family when leaving the house isn’t quite an option? We’ve got some ideas that might help…

Shakeup their style with DIY tie-dye. Not only is it a great way for kids to add a personal touch to their wardrobe, you can also use it to save their stained tees from never being worn again. Plus, it’s easy to do using natural ingredients – some you might already have at home!

Send them on a scavenger hunt around the home. Encourage them to think creatively by giving them a list of adjectives they have to find matching objects for e.g. something rough; something natural; something smooth etc. 

Whip up something tasty in the kitchen together. Georgia Bateman’s recipe for a raspberry coconut slice was a hit during the last lockdown if you’re stuck for kid-friendly snacks, while the TikTok-famous baked feta pasta makes for an easy mealtime win. 

Get them involved outdoors with a little gardening. See our tips for regrowing veggies from food scraps, or give them their own mini garden to tender to using their old, worn-out gumboots.

Help them find their zen. We could all use a little more calm in our lives no matter how tall we are — so we’ve rounded up a few of our favourite mood-boosting things that help make mindfulness more fun for kids

And if all else fails, and they insist on watching their favourite movie on repeat, we’ve got loads of toys and games you can get delivered straight to your door to help keep them distracted – plus noise-cancelling headphones for yourself, because we know this job ain't easy.
