Teacher Tips: At Home with The Kids


We spoke to some teachers to find out what they recommend kids do with this time at home. Perfect for keeping them busy but also helping them to continue learning, we got a list of fun activities and educational resources for you to choose from.


Fun Activities


Make a rainbow or sign to spread cheer

Make a bug hotel in the garden

Make a fairy garden

Make a wand and invent your own spells

Carry out a bird watch

Invent and create a new board game

Design your own fashion line

Dragons den style challenge with a new invention

Create a 3D sculpture out of your recycling

Plant some seeds

Create some name art

Create some pop art on the computer

Fill a jar with post-it notes of things the kids would like to do once we are over the virus – gives them something to look forward to, they could also paint/decorate the jar

Picnic in the garden – make the most of the lovely weather whilst we can

Build a den (I used to love doing this as a kid!) and have ‘sleepovers’ in it
