Parent`s help blog page...

I`m going to put links to some of the amazing sites that are popping up everyday to help your children keep busy, all are free, some require internet access some require a printer and some are things you can do together indoors or in the garden....hope these will give you some ideas to pass the time. My biggest tip is to make a timetable for your day with activities indoors and outside if you have outside space and together time at the same time. Eat lunch together at their normal school time , its always been a very social time at school and the children will miss that. Lots of the events online come on the same time every day so plan around them.

Hope these help will update as new ones appear......
