    Painting on snow

    We are trying to make the most of the snow indoors and outdoors as it’s unlikely to have it for long. Here’s an indoor idea with snow. Bring some snow in a plastic box and dilute some paints with water (or use food colouring). Painting works better on snow balls. Don’t forget to put a…

    Musical wine glasses

    Always been fascinated by the sounds of the crystal glasses. It turns out any cheap wine glass does the job. To do it with your kids is best to have a waterproof base and stick the glasses to the base with tape. Pour different quantities of water to the glasses as this results in different…

    Water slide/puddles activity

    I have been waiting for a hot day to do this for a while now & it finally came. You need a big tarpaulin sheet, a water hose and one or more kids in swimming costumes. Just lie down the sheet on a flat surface (grass to avoid accidents) if you want puddles, or downhill…
