Hello from 5 Minute Fun!

We’re a group of parents, bloggers and crafters who love coming up with easy and exciting ways to keep kids busy.

Our fun activities take 5-minutes and are completely FREE to receive. Sign up to our newsletter or browse our activities page to find 100s of instant ideas that kids will love – and that give you 5 Minutes of ME time!

We created 5 Minute Fun because as much as we love spending time with our kids, sometimes we need 5 minutes to enjoy a hot cup of tea, send a quick email or – heaven forbid – go to the loo in peace!

Our tried and tested activities get children excited and help them to be independent. We believe it’s possible to keep kids entertained without tiring yourself out or spending lots of money, so our ideas are simple and use stuff you’ll probably have lying around the house.

Whether you’re at home on a rainy day, out and about travelling or surviving the school holidays, you’ll find the perfect activity for you and your child.

We love hearing about what you get up to, how our ideas have worked for you and if there’s anything you’d like to see more (or less) of. Keep in touch and, most importantly, take 5 Minutes for YOU!
