- Transform your back garden into the ultimate play zone – make an obstacle course and bring out all those fab outdoor toys.
- Even the smallest bucket of water will keep the kids happy, splashing, stirring and pouring for hours! And when the sun comes out… water fight!
- From handstands and hula hoops to crawling under tables and chairs, build an indoor obstacle course and enjoy some free fun.
- If they’ve got the moves, then let them go crazy to their favourite tunes or just pick one and make up a dance.
Take a kitchen roll tube and mark out the mouth and tail of the shark.
Get an adult to cut out the marked sections or use safety scissors supervised by an adult and cut 2 fins and a tail using cut-offs. Cut out 2 sets of teeth from white card.
Paint everything except the teeth and allow to dry. Glue pieces in place and add googly eyes!

- Sit-down family meals every night might be the new norm, so enjoy it. Try a few conversation starters, like ‘What’s your favourite song?’ or ‘If you had a superpower, what would it be and why?’
