Wonderful Weekends

Wednesday, 27th January 2021

Always struggling for things to do with the kids on a weekend? 

We have a few ideas that may keep you and them entertained as well as encouraging some family time whilst you are not at work.

Games!

Games are a brilliant way to teach your child skills as well as having fun whilst doing it!

Take a look at some of our suggestions below for your children:

  • Jenga - Building Skills

  • Snakes & Ladders - Counting Skills

  • Ludo - Counting Skills

  • Guess Who - Description Skills

  • Connect Four - Counting & Strategy Skills

  • Crocodile Dentist - Reaction Skills

  • Buckaroo - Reaction Skills

  • Operation - Patients & Reaction Skills

  • Eye Found It - Observation Skills

  • Shopping List - Reading & Finding Skills

  • Memory - Observation & Memory Skills 

All these simple games are a great start for your children! The fun can last as long as you want it too

Movies!

Recapture the cinema experience! Give the kids some pretend money, let them buy a ticket aswell as popcorn and snakcs!

If you don't have much energy and would like a chill night why not grab some food, snacks, popcorn and give the children a choice of 3-5 films to choose one from that you all can watch as a family. Get some blankets and pillows and all sit and watch the chosen film on the sofa. Why not get some fairy lights for the room as well to make it magical! 

Scavenger Hunt!

What better way to start the day than a local scavenger hunt. Give your child a list of things to find either inside or outside the house! This should keep them entertained for a while and you shouldn't need to help too much! 

Example List (Outdoors - parental supervision advised): dog, lamp post, red car, flowers, fence, door bell, insects, garden hose, park, shop

Example List (Indoors): blue pencil, some money, book, movie, matching socks, envelope, something orange, letter Y,  apple, ring

If doing a scavenger hunt outside we recommend parents join in but you can tailor this to your back garden so you know your children are safe and can find everything they are looking for!

Treasure Hunt

Who doesn't love a good treasure hunt? Hide some sweets or a surprise somewhere in the house and leave clues to where it is. Start your child off with one clue that leads to the next. This could be as simple as giving them a DVD and letting them find the case which would have a clue in it to where they need to go next. 

The kids will love the adventure and working out what they need to do and all you need is some paper, a pen and a prize for the end (treasure).

TOP TIP: Decide where you will hide the final treasure and then work backwards to the start so you get all the clues hidden in the right place!
