Any parent knows that it can be rather challenging to entertain the kids during the school holidays, but when you throw isolation into the mix, it can really prove quite the task for parents.
If you’re already starting to run out of all the activities you’d planned, we might be able to help.
“I always find that if the kids start whinging, it’s hard to come up with ideas on the spot. So the night before I try to think of at least a few things we can do that will take up a good chunk of time. It’s the worst when you plan something and they only participate for five minutes!”
While The Festive Co provide creative workshops and DIY’s for little people to take advantage of in shopping centres during the school holidays, since isolation, Alexis says more parents than ever are heading to them online for ideas to entertain their children.
“I’m so glad we can be really useful for parents. Parents have a lot on their plates right now, from working full time from home, juggling remote home schooling, looking after babies and possibly elderly family too. The great thing about our activities, such as the hunts, is that bigger kids can do them solo giving the grown-ups a chance to catch up on one of a million other life tasks.”
Alexis has shared with us five of her favourite activities. We hope these activities are as much of a hit in your household as they have been in ours!
