@Home activities for children during Covid-19 Coronovirus lockdown

As a parent I understand how important it is to keep children entertained. This is now even harder with the country in lockdown over a sunny Easter holiday. Here are some links to useful activities.

Scouts – The Great Indoors

Scouts is normally considered an outdoor organisation. In fact during leader training Scout leaders are encouraged to aim for about 50% of all activities to be outdoor. That hasn’t stopped them raising up to the challenge of providing fun indoor activities. The Great Indoors is a list of activities and ideas that can be used for all age groups (targetted at age 6 upwards) and are just as useful for parents and children as they are for scouts.
