Children are creative, capable, and so much fun!

Anyone who’s spent any time looking after children knows how challenging it can be to keep them busy and entertained, sometimes they just need some help on how to spend their time.

Our website will provide you with all kinds of fun crafts, indoor and outdoor activities, book recommendations and even some recipes.

The activities have been split up into Environmental, Seasonal and Monthly.

Environmental Activities

Can children be interested in environmental issues?

When people develop their knowledge in the environment and sustainability they become better equipped and more motivated to create a fairer, greener society.
It's so important to make sure that children are also given the chance to take part in talks and activities that affect their lives.
Even young children are able to join in issues about the social, environmental and economic aspects of sustainability.

A study found a positive link when parents of young children were involved in talks and activities about sustainability with them.
Research was also carried out by Keep Britain Tidy that found evidence that when children are taught about environmental issues, it has a positive impact on their wellbeing, behaviour, motivation and cognitive skills.

It’s a lot easier to establish "green living" habits in young children than to teach them new habits when they are older.
Very young children may not be able to carry out some of the activities - you will have to wait until they get older, but there are plenty of good habits for them to learn by watching you.

Activities by Season

Why teach children activities based on seasons?

A change of season affects us and our environment in different ways. Doing activities which are season specific helps children understand the passage of time and teaches them about change. There are many important subtle changes related to each season, such as the type of food that is available. For example, in some parts of the world, winter means shorter days, cooler temperatures, and little or no plant growth.
