Easter weekend is always a highlight in the diary. A long four-day weekend, (usually) lovely spring weather and a chance to have some quality family time. While this year may be looking a little bit different to the norm and your plans may be cancelled, good times (and chocolate) still lay ahead! With this extra time at home, you may be running out of things to keep your little ones entertained, but that’s where Katie Impey, AKA @themumlife_styled, comes in. A pro at coming up with fun activities for her girls, Katie has given us some inspiration. Here’s what to do with the kids this bank holiday weekend..
“We love making things and decided to make personalised bracelets to send to friends and family in exchange for a donation to NHS charities.”
This is one idea we love! Not only a fun way to pass the time, it’s also a great opportunity to raise a bit of money for the people keeping us safe. You can buy bead sets online in different sizes for different ages. Order lots of colours and shapes and sizes and play around!
“With so much change to their routine, it’s no wonder kids are feeling out of sorts and acting up! In hope of regaining some sort of discipline, we instated a reward chart that the girls decorated!”
Get them excited about the idea of reward chart by letting them make it look good! Give out gold stars for good behaviour, eating well and helping out with chores and every ten stars, give them a little treat. It’s also a great way to keep them busy and help around the house. Win-win!
