Schools Out

We know that having to keep the kids entertained for 6 whole weeks can be a very scary thought for parents but don’t worry anymore! Outdoors or indoors, making ice lollies or Playdough, we have ideas to keep even the fussiest child busy.


Picnic Lunches!

Just having your lunch time sandwich outside on a blanket can be a great big adventure! Try making our all in one Picnic Loaf or if you are feeling really adventurous you could theme the lunch to tie in with the day. Fill up on our yummy Very Hungry Caterpillar sandwich and then head off on a mini beast hunt!

Cooling down!

If the suns beaming and you want everyone to cool down with a healthy snack then we know just the thing. Strawberry Ice Lollies four ways! All you need is a few simple ingredients and a lolly mould, freeze overnight and tad dah! Refreshing tasty ice lollies.

Or if the weather is not so nice you could do some fun indoor activities…


Cookie decorating!

Cookie decorating is a great way to get kids creative juices flowing. You can choose to go a step further and make the cookies yourself or you can simply grab some plain shop bought ones and use these instead!

To make the cookie icing simply use powdered sugar and milk or water and add in a little vanilla extract for flavouring. First Place the sugar into a bowl (around two cups should do) and add two drops of vanilla extract if desired. Then, mix in one tablespoon of milk or sugar at a time until you have the desired consistency.

Once you have the desired consistency, separate the icing into smaller bowls and add food colouring as desired. Once mixed, place the icing into an icing gun  or piping bag and get decorating!

Make your own playdough!

This one is great! Fun to make and then the kids can play! Double win!

You will need a mixing bowl, a cup of water, 4 cups of flour, 2 to 4 tablespoons of cooking oil, 1½ cups of salt and food colouring. All you need to do is add all dry ingredients together and then add the water stir and add oil and food colouring and there you have it fun easy play dough!

And if none of that works, drop them off to the grandparents!
