Ideas for Isolation . . .

It’s a changing space for us all at the moment, and with the prospect of you and your children to be isolated at home in the coming weeks, we thought it was a good time to get some ideas out there for the inevitable question you will be faced with….”but, I’m bored!”.

Here are some ideas for different activities that you can incorporate into you a routine for your kids.
You might even like to have a look at our draft of a schedule, to help promote some structure.

Print this list, give the kids some ideas, let them pick from the list or even better – cut the activities out, fold them up and pop them in a jar for your child pick out an activity at random!

Happy Holidays / Home- Schooling  🙂
