Why not take a break from the pressures of ‘home schooling’ and make a DIY cinema in your home? Get all your duvets, comfy pillows and beans bags on the floor, find the biggest bowl for popcorn or your favourite snacks and kick back with a great film. You could take inspiration from drive throughs and make your own cardboard cars to watch the film from! Older children could even get creative designing their own film tickets and set up ticket booths.
It’s important to remember how vital spending fun and quality time together can be in times where emotions are running higher than normal. Children will be absorbing a lot of the ‘adult tensions’ floating around at the moment and struggling to understand why they aren’t going to nursery or school and why they can’t see their friends or family members. Time spent with your child/ren which is focused solely on supporting their mental health and wellbeing will be ensure they feel safe and comforted during a stressful and uncertain period in their lives.
