Today is the start of world wide screen free week and although I am looking forward to this week I am am also a little nervousness that some of the activities I have planned will not last the full week. So I have been doing some web surfing this morning while the children have been at school to see if I get some more inspiration for different fun activities I can add to my list of creativity this week.
With just a short search I have come across 100’s of great activities that we can do costing us either nothing because we already have the materials in the house or just a few pounds.
But here are my top 5 fun filled activities.
Sail away with a homemade boat created from a old cardboard box, tissue paper, paint and the base of a old pizza board. Full instructions here.
Bath time fun with a sensory bath time compost play. Created from bath crayons, children’s watering can, shaving foam, food colouring, baking soda and jelly worms. Full instructions here.
Garden fun with a twist of perfecting your hand eye co-ordination with this handmade Velcro catch ball game. All you need is some winter gloves, Velcro with a sticky back and some ping pong balls. Full instructions here.
I love junk modeling but this mini biplane takes junk modeling to another level in our house. All you need is a toilet roll, cereal box, masking tape and plastic cup. Full instructions here.
I can remember having hours of fun playing with marbles in our family living room. My brother and sister use to make up all sorts of games but I wish we made this marble run as it looks such great fun. I think the children may be fighting for their turn when we create this one because I think mummy might be having to much fun. All you need to some cardboard tubes, cardboard boxes, blue tack, sellotape and of course loads of marbles. Full instructions here.
