Art Attack

Whether you do it outside or inside, a giant art attack can be great fun and great exercise.

First, decide what they are going to make. It could be a character from a book, a landscape, their favourite superhero, the list is endless. Having a photo or picture to copy can be a huge help. Decide whether you’re going to do it outside or inside. Depending on age, they could be left to their own devices, or it could be a family effort. Work through each part, asking them to look for an item that would be great for each part of the picture.

Once complete, you can also have great fun taking pics with their art.

Once finished, you can squeeze even more excercise in, by setting a timer, putting on a super fast song……Benny Hill Theme tune aways works at STAG HQ, and see how fast they can pop everything away.

Lots of fun, great exercise, picture memories and no tidying up for mums and dads.

Can your little one help put out the fire?

We love this idea from The Manc, so simple, so much fun. As an alternative to the hosepipe, spray bottles could be used or paint brushes with water.

It’s also a great opportunity to teach a few skills in fire safety and how to protect the home, what to do in the event of a fire and so on.

Orgami can be a great activity to focus children and give them something fun and creative to do. This super resource from Easy, Peasy & Fun gives them lots of options to choose from.
