What can the kids do during Easter?

Like many parents, I thought I would be using lots of online resources to supplement my kids’ school work whilst we were in lockdown, but to be perfectly honest, I had no idea where to start.

Then after a couple of days of trying to get on top of the tasks my two kids (Year 3 and Year 7) had been set by school, I didn’t think there was really going to be much time to do it anyway.

But now it is the Easter holidays, the schooling pressure is off, but there are still hundreds of hours in each day (or so it seems) that need filling, without going out of your own home/garden.

It’s a tough challenge for any parent.

Here are a few of the ones that stood out to us here at Social Vision HQ:
