Thank you NHS poster and more fun window art ideas

Free poster to print

Show NHS and key workers how much your family appreciates them - and keep your kids busy for 5 minutes! The ideas below include a free poster to print and colour.

We loved seeing rainbows appear in our neighbourhood during the last lockdown and going out to count them became a favourite family activity. This time, we’re feeling more jaded – aren’t we all? Which makes it even more important to try and lift our spirits. Why not set aside time this week to try one of these projects? If only because it will keep your kids busy for an afternoon!

1. Thank you NHS painting

You’ll need: rainbow paint, a plate, paper

1. Paint the rainbow on the plate for your child to dip their hand into. Print onto the paper.

2. Help them to write a nice thank you message.

2. Write a note to your postman or woman

You’ll need: pens and paper

Simply ask your child to draw a picture of the person who delivers your mail.

If you can, find out their name – it adds a nice personal touch (the recipient of this picture was over the moon!)

You can even add a gift… (Remember to wash their  hands first!)
