Turn your back for a moment, and it’s anyone’s guess where they’ve disappeared to… who knows. Into the shed, up a tree, down a rabbit hole?

These games are designed to keep the world’s greatest explorers occupied, so you know where to find them.

1 Use a small rug and boxes to build a pirate ship outdoors. Add a paper plate as a steering wheel, pop on your stripy t-shirt and sail the seven seas.

2 Paint giant pictures of the trees. How big can you get them? Ask your child to to lie down next to the trees to see who’s taller.

3 Put double-sided tape on your wellies and collect fallen petals or grass to stick to them.

4 Explore the garden for nice round pebbles, then paint them different colours.

5 Make bubble mixture with washing liquid and water and see how big your kids can get them!

We’d love to hear how you’re getting on with our games! You can talk to us on Facebook and Twitter, @5minutefun.
