Juggling childcare and work is challenging at the best of times, let alone in lockdown! With schools closed until at least mid-February and the February half-term looming, to help your children look forward to the future as well as creating good memories of lockdown, here are 5 immersive ways to entertain children at home during lockdown.


Indoor gardening activities

Getting back to nature offers a range of benefits to kids. Educational, engaging, and enjoyable, gardening awakens the senses, teaches responsibility and patience, and encourages healthy eating too. Whether you have a garden or not, here are some fun indoor gardening activities that all households can enjoy:

  • Grow an indoor herb garden
  • Make a cactus or succulent garden
  • Regrow vegetables from scraps
  • Make a bird feeder
  • Decorate plant pots


Nature scavenger hunt

Make your little one’s daily exercise that bit more interesting by incorporating a nature scavenger hunt. Able to be done pretty much anywhere, outdoor scavenger hunts are a relaxing way to boost observation skills whilst simultaneously getting much needed fresh air and physical activity. Download a free printable scavenger hunt here or get creative and make your own!

Take a virtual trip

Did you know many public spaces, art galleries and museums are offering virtual tours through lockdown? Explore our region’s heritage with Virtual West Midlands or go further afield to the British Museum in London, The Louvre in Paris or Europe’s biggest aquarium in Valencia – the possibilities are endless and it’s completely free! A virtual tour of a museum, gallery or historic place can easily be included in your home-schooling schedule too. And if your budget allows, you could go one step further and invest in a VR headset to really feel like they’re there!

Art and craft projects

Encourage your child’s creative streak whilst developing their decision-making and fine-motor skills with an arts and crafts project. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Add to the giant ‘mosaic of hope’ with a Rainbow for the NHS picture
  • A family tree
  • Bubble painting
  • DIY dollhouse
  • Pebble art
  • Tie-dye t-shirts
  • Homemade candles

Build a den

tiled roofKids love building den’s, and if you’re honest, we’re sure you still do too! Den making burns off excess energy in a safe environment, whilst promoting teamwork, problem-solving, communication, confidence and independence. A simple yet satisfying activity, the best thing about dens is they can be made out of whatever is to hand at home. Fun den ideas for children.

Looking to the future, if you need more space, a modern glazed extension makes the ideal children’s playroom or extra living room just for adults.
