The Scouts teach us some super fun activities to keep kids engaged and entertained at home:
Scouts have and always will be active members of our communities and we know that now is no different. Thanks to the incredible hard work that so many of you are already putting in to support your young people and their families in your local area.
As experts in developing skills and bringing new experiences to young people, we know you’ll agree that it’s only right for us to step up and do what we can to support young people and their families across the UK. (From Tim Kidd UK Chief Commissioner).
So, with that in mind Scouts HQ, would like to introduce you to The Great Indoors. We've pulled together 100 activities from our programme planner that is perfect for parents and carers to do with their children if they’re stuck at home over the next few weeks.
Top 5 Activities To Keep Your Kids Engaged at Home:The Scouts teach us how to make an adventure out of being stuck at home.
Compass Coding | Use coding and compass direction to help a ScoutBot get to camp.
It’s Knot you, it’s me! | Knots can be more than they seem. Discover the art of macramé and how different knots make different patterns.
Be a blackout Poet | Blackout poems are made using pages from books, newspapers, or magazines. Blackout poets pick out single words or phrases from the existing text, then piece them together to make something new. This kind of poetry embraces randomness and also gives people a chance to mix poetry and visual art.
A Flair for Hot Air | Finding out how hot air balloons work by crafting your own and watching it fly up, up and away.
Flying your Flag for The Planet | Flag up issues and share your promise to help improve the natural environment in your local area.
It’s in challenging times like these that we show our true Scout colours and our values most. I know that you’ll continue to rise to the challenge, and we’ll continue to support you in doing so.
