Is today half term, a bank holiday, both? School is messing with our minds!

Whatever, everyone’s off and it’s sunny (for once!). Here are three games to keep the kids occupied while you drink wine chill out in the sunshine.

1 Drive pebble cars around in the grass. They could use a felt tip to draw on passengers, wheels, etc.

2 Make a shaker by putting pasta, rice or gravel in a plastic bottle and screwing on the lid.

3 Measure their hand by drawing around it, then challenge them to find three things that fit inside the outline.
