Start a garden
Not only will growing your own vegetables keep the kids busy but it might save you some trips to the shops too.
Camping at home
Let your child's imagination run wild as they pretend to go camping in the backyard. Build a fire, toast some marshmallows, tell ghost stories and don't forget to make some animal shadows with your torch!
Let the children get creative with a Bird Feeder and see who can identify the most birds.
Learn a new language
With a wide variety of free tutorial channels online, now is your chance. Expand on "international dish day" and explore the culture and traditions of your chosen country.
