Keep the kids entertained
Our best boredom busters
There are lots of ways your kids can learn whilst still having fun at home. STEM toys are a good place to start. They present key science, technology, engineering and maths problems in a fun and accessible way. Roleplay games are great for smaller tots too – dress up or make DIY costumes and go wherever their imagination takes them.
For older kids who may be learning from home, try creating a study zone that's separate from their toys and games. A dining room table or coffee table would do, or consider a kids desk if you've got the space.
If you’re running out of indoor games to play, consider topping up the toy box with something new – or plan for dry weather with some outdoor toys, to burn off some of that energy.
