With the summer holidays now upon us I thought it would be a good idea to share some ideas of things to do with your preschooler for free. If you have a preschooler you’ll know how the holidays suddenly mean that your go to places are either closed (parent and child groups, children’s centre) or absolutely rammed full of ‘big kids’ (oh my days have you been to soft play in the holidays? It’s carnage!) Having two kids myself – one preschooler and one school age I’m sure that most of these activities are suitable for older kids too and there’s enough suggestions that you should be able to find a few ideas no matter what the age of your kids or what they are into.

We often seem to get leftover balloons from parties or whatever so getting a second use out them as with this balloon printed apple craft is a great idea. It’s a great activity for preschoolers or even toddlers too as it doesn’t require much in the way of skill and using a balloon to print with is a fun alternative to a normal paintbrush.

I’m so excited to be sharing these Beauty and the Beast crafts and activities with you today! Both of my kids love Disney films and we’ve shared a lot of Disney crafts and activities for kids before but this is one in particular that I’m sure my daughter will love! These ideas are perfect for a bit of rainy day fun, or just because you love Disney princesses, after all kids are far more likely to want to get involved in an activity when it’s about something they truly enjoy!

“This is engineering?!” If I’d told my son we were going to be doing an engineering project I think he’d have baulked at the idea. It sounds like school work, it sounds like it might be hard, I’m pretty certain he wouldn’t think it would be fun. But after taking the Chain Reaction Challenge his opinion has changed – actually I had to drag him and his younger sister away from making up more last night and again this morning so we could make it to school on time. Needless to say I’m hugely excited to be working with The Year of Engineering and their Holiday Makers project both today sharing some simple Rube Goldberg machine ideas you can do with your kids and also about their amazing challenges and their events that are taking place across the UK.
