Ask a Question

Suggest me 5 fun activities for kids we can do during the week. I work on the weekend and hardly get a chance to see kids. Please don't mention going to the park.

Take them on swimming, horse riding, running if wannabe be home then colouring, drawing. To be honest depends on kids' age.

I would rather suggest cooking and movie night, less messy and more fun. Art is fun but too much to handle

DEN OR CAVE BUILDING

There is probably not a single child between 1 and 10 who doesn’t like to build and play in dens or caves. At toucanBox HQ the great majority of us claim to be grown-ups, and we’d all love to while away an afternoon building a massive pillow fort.

Children’s imaginations go wild with this activity. From planning the build - what will they use to make their den? Can they gather the materials themselves? - to playing inside of it, each step is an absolute pleasure. Hopefully they’ll be inspired to come up with exciting, fun-filled role play, or simply enjoy a change the scene and play with their toys ‘hidden away’ in their cave.

The easiest way to create a stable den is through using a blanket or bed sheet and cover a table or some other furniture moved together. You can create quite a spacious den using four chairs arranged in a square with the blanket placed over the back rests. Add few cushions added into the cave and your kids will have a great time for sure

Depends how old they are and what you want to/can afford to spend and if you can do things during the day. Take them swimming, horse riding, soft play, messy play, playgroups, museums, do some baking, build a fort, have a movie and snacks afternoon, play football, gymnastics, arts and crafts (as long as you don't mind it getting messy), go to your local library, pick out a book, read it together and then draw some pictures of characters from the story and write a new part for the story or invent a new character for the story, look on your local what's on page to find local activities to take them too.

Baking, visit a museum, do some crafts, maybe get kids involved in cooking lunch and dinner (homemade pizzas are always a good one!)

Make pizzas, go for a walk and collect leaves, twigs, rocks etc and then use them for making something crafty. You could even paint the stones and hide them for other people to find.
