Lockdown ideas

Family games to try in lockdown

A few more ideas:

1. Colourful shave

Here is another lockdown activity to keep your little ones occupied – for those bold enough to try it! Simply decant shaving cream into a tub/bucket, add food colouring (green will always be our preferred colour!) and give your child a paint brush they can use to help you prep your shave. 

2. Paper plate and balloon tennis

Raining outside? No problem! Keep the kids entertained and active with this fun game. Easy to set up and safe to play.

What you need:

2 paper plates, 2 x wooden spoons, prestik and a balloon.

What to do:

Stick the paper plate onto the wooden spoon for a makeshift racket. Use a rope or string as the net. Blow up a balloon and let the match begin!

3. Art jamming lockdown style

There’s nothing kids love more than messy play. This will provide great fun for your children and we promise the clean up is quick and easy too!

What you need:
1. Shaving cream
2. Food colouring
3. Paint brushes

What to do:
1. Decant shaving cream into a bucket or container
2. Add food colouring for added fun
3. Find a glass door or windows for the kids to ‘paint’ with the shaving foam mixture.
4. Give each child a paint brush and let them get creative
5. To clean up simply hose down the window and get the kids into the shower to rinse off.

4. At home mechanic shop

Join your dad or mom and go wipe down the grease and dirt in the car engine.

5. Street art 

Get some chalk, get outside and draw some pictures on the garage door or driveway. Fresh air in vital and a hosepipe will wash away the chalk instantly.

6. Word art

Collect stones or acorns in an empty coffee container or jar and then try make words and shapes. Once you’ve done this, try and throw them back into the container/jar.

Have fun and remember to share your pics and tag Coach Kyle!
