How to keep the kids entertained these school holidays

Sometimes you can spend hours wracking your brain trying to decide how you’re going to entertain your kids for the day.

If you’re looking for things the kids can do while you’re travelling overseas on a long-haul flight or embarking on a lengthy family road trip, we’ve got you covered. Your first port of call? A good book. Sanity has an amazing selection of kids’ books to browse through, including every book in the iconic Harry Potter series. However, if your kids prefer a puzzle or two, then why not get them a game that really tests their knowledge? Order them a Perplexus Rubiks Cube from Sanity and see if they’re able to complete not just the cube, but the maze inside it as well, before you reach your destination.

When the sun’s out, you know the kids will be too. If you’re taking the kids outside for the day, why not get them to pack a picnic lunch with you? Baby Presents has a wide selection of lunchboxes you can use to store tasty sandwiches, succulent snacks, and maybe a sweet treat or two. Not only will they be able to get creative with their food choices, but you’ll also have an extra pair of hands to help you prep for the day ahead. Also, if you’re walking to the park for your picnic, why not let your kids drive themselves in their very own pedal-powered go kart from Sanity?

Sometimes the weather isn’t on our side. When this inevitably happens, it’s always good to have a few games ready to help the kids have fun at home. Sanity has a massive collection of board games guaranteed to enhance any rainy day inside. Our favourite? Let’s Feed the Very Hungry Caterpillar – because not only does it remind us of the classic book, but it’s designed for children three years and up, making it the perfect game for the younger ones to play too. Of course, rain doesn’t always stop the kids from wanting head outside. So, if your kids still want to get into nature when it’s wet, why not get them a raincoat from Baby Presents that looks adorable and reveals a hidden pattern when it touches water?
