Fun things to do with your family

We're all spending more time at home together and sometimes we can fall out or even get bored. sadcrying

 

Here are hopefully some nice ideas of things you can do with your family to cheer you up or stop you getting bored. heartsmiley

 

If you have another nice idea you have done with your family, remember you can let us know and we can add it here for other people to do. yes

 

 kacb ward (back draw)

 

Recommended by Sam in 4S, he says: "It's exactly what it sounds like! One person is drawing a not too complicated picture on someone’s back (with paper) and the person who is being drawn on has to try draw the same thing! This game helps communication skills and is very fun!"

 

Thanks, Sam! 

 

Visit the 'Art for Kids Hub'

A family YouTube channel, Art For Kids Hub!

There are lots of things you could draw together.

MAKE A FAMILY KEEPSAKE

CREATE A RAINBOW.

You can't walk anywhere at the moment without seeing a rainbow in someone's window.

That's because families have been busy painting and drawing them as a display of togetherness and to give children something to spot while out on their walks.

But you don't have to stop at paint or crayons.

 

 

 

PEBBLE ART

Pebble art has been quite a thing over recent years, with people decorating rocks and leaving them in parks and other places for people to find.

Given the current climate, people aren't sharing them at the moment, but that isn't stopping families having lots of fun decorating them.

 

Something as simple as felt tips does the trick on lighter rocks, with children decorating them however they want - some making funny faces out of them.

 

 

 

NATURE TREASURE HUNT

There's all sorts of fun to be had indoors or outdoors with a treasure hunt.

Give each child a bag with a list on showing what they have to find - a leaf, a flower, a stick, a stone.

You could use the collected items to make a nature picture afterwards, or a leaf print.

There are loads of ideas for nature scavenger hunts from the Woodland Trust here.

 

 

THE ALPHABET GAME.

Now this one couldn't be simpler.

Basically pick any subject like girls' names, boys' names or even chocolate bars and you have to write one down for each letter of the alphabet. 

 

Ideas you could do:

-Foods

- Names

- Animals

- Places

SHADOW DRAWING.

All you need is the sun for this one, although you could always use a lamp if needs be.

 

Draw around the shadows of toys or objects.
