Half Term: Monsoon Children’s Journal


This half term we’ve put together a Monsoon Journal dedicated to kids, with activities to inspire their break from home to outdoors. Get them making their own tie-dye with natural products you can find at home with a link to our how-to or take them on an outdoor adventure with a list of the best places to walk in nature near you.


Create your own tie-dye



Creating your own tie-dye at home isn’t as hard as you might think, and you can do it with natural products. We have a guide to take you through just what you need and how to do it, keeping the children happy for hours on end with something fun for them to keep at the end of it too. See our dedicated blog post below and if you keep scrolling, you’ll find some fun woodblock and painting projects you can both enjoy doing together!

Take a trip into London, a day out in itself, and bring the kids to a museum with fun art challenges planned in as part of your day. Visit the V&A for activities from baby mindfulness to imagination stations running throughout the half-term week.
