50 fun things to do with the kids in lockdown


We’re all spending a lot more time at home at the moment which means we’re having to come up with new ways to keep the kids entertained.

While most schools are sending out work and we’re inundated with lists of home education apps, there have never been more resources on hand to keep our children learning.

Carol Vorderman is offering free maths lessons, David Walliams has released 30 free audio stories and Joe Wicks has become the nation’s PE teacher with his daily YouTube fitness class – for those that have stuck at it anyway.

Some of the ideas have been shared on the popular Family Lockdown Tips & Ideas Facebook page, which has proved massively popular since launching just a few weeks ago.

Set up by mum Claire Balkind, it has already amassed more than a million members and is growing by the day.
