Summer with the kids is NUTS, so we’re very pleased Nut Job 2 is out to give us all something exciting to do.

Here are four ideas inspired by the movie. It’s the gift that keeps on giving…

1 Use the Snapchat filter to turn you both into adorable little mice. But remember – “Don’t call me cute!”

2 The perfect excuse to eat sugar… We love these acorn dough balls. We couldn’t find ‘fall’ sprinkles, but hundreds and thousands work fine.

3 Get them to draw their own Nutty by Nature Bingo cards. Then challenge them to look out for a squirrel, pigeon, hedgehog, leaf, acorn, dandelion, flower and dog. They can do this in your garden, outside the front of the house, in a park. Or take them along to the movie.

4 Set them this fun craft activity – making a squirrel with paints and their foot.
