Helping support youFamily Fun
Relax and play
Thank you for the commitment you have shown your child’s education since school closed due to Covid-19. We know it has been a tough adjustment being at home so we wanted to provide you with some activities you could do as a family. Time together will relieve the stress and worry of the current situation and will hopefully offer an opportunity for laughter and fun!

time for play
Activities to do with your family during lockdown.
Building dens is a fun and easy activity that doesn’t need many materials – a blanket and some pegs can be a good starting point!
Body Language Charades
Not only do you need to be able to communicate using body language, but you need to be able to interpret it and make sense of what others are communicating as well.
Calm Down Box
This activity is designed to help you to create a toolkit of things that you can use when you are feeling angry, upset, stressed or worried to help you calm down and take control.
What do you get when you combine a rock found on a nature walk with a heartfelt message for your bestie? Friendship ROX, of course!
Why not get the family together in the kitchen? Making a noisy lunch together is an excellent opportunity for talking and having fun. Talking and copying the sounds you hear.
Message in a Bottle
Say to your child, “Do you have some good friends? Tell me about them!” Give them a chance to reflect on the special friendships in their lives.
Roll and Write
Can you write a story using dice? Yes you can, see where your story leads in this communication game.
Switch off Challenge
Everyone should think about the different screen devices they use. They could think about phones, tablets, laptops and computers, gaming, and television.
Give your children a list of things to find around the house or in the garden and then see how they get on!
Setting up a tuck shop at home not only teaches the kids some valuable money lessons, it also curbs the nagging, and can be really fun too. Win, win win!
Give the creepy crawlies in your garden somewhere to live. How many different insects can you find?
Can't talk? Write
If you’re having trouble talking about your feelings at the moment, try writing them down instead.
The Easter bucket list from Youngminds is a great way to spend time doing positive activities with your
child, can provide a space to talk through any concerns and bring you closer together.
