Nobody requires their imagination quite like a parent stuck indoors with their kids. You’ll be glad to hear then that come rain or shine, we’re full of bright ideas to keep kids of all ages entertained both in the house and garden. From tiny adventurers to literary lovers, wannabe movie moguls and artists in the making, we’ve got plenty of inspiration during these difficult times to ensure you’ll never have to hear the words “I’m bored” ever again. (Well, hopefully…)
Tea, cake, Maxx
Did somebody say banana loaf? Nope, sorry, not us. We’re more interested in what’s the weirdest thing you can make from cake sponge? A millennium falcon for example. We’ve seen the weird, the wonderful, and frankly brilliant bakes on Instagram and now we’d love to see your family’s creations. Don’t be a stranger and share your bonkers bakes with us on social media. Hint hint: red velvet is our fave for obvious reasons (psst, have you seen our logo?).
Make like you’re a street entertainer. Learn to juggle with balls of socks, oranges, apples, Mum’s favourite candle? Ok, ok, the last one was a joke. The crazier, the more fun. Start off small with two, before introducing a third (or fourth if you’re feeling brave). Once you’ve mastered the fine art of juggling, it’s time to show off those skills on a Zoom call with the whole fam. Lucky them.
A ‘treasure’ hunt
If you have a garden of your own, why not create a check list for your little ones to find a number of nature’s finest? We’re talking pine cones, a six legged creepy crawly, a four-leaf clover and hopefully a butterfly or two. Alternatively you can bring the treasure hunt indoors by hiding cryptic clues in the furniture, nooks and crannies encouraged. It’s no secret that we all love a good ol’ treasure hunt at TK Maxx now, is it?
