Keeping kids entertained, stimulated and active

There is little doubt the world has changed for most of us in the last few months and that includes our little ones! Playgrounds have been locked, soft play centres forced to close, physical classes such as swimming and dancing put on hold. All of this has left us with finding new ways of entertaining, stimulating and exercising children of all ages.

 

Making the family walks more fun

 

One of the things that lockdown has had an impact on is how we spend our time outside. In the early days of lockdown, local walks with the family was a highlight of the day and even though things have started to open up, this has continued.

As parents, we know that although buoyed by the initial freedom of going outside, kids can often get bored and frustrated and have a tendency to decide they no longer want to walk when you are at the furthest point from the house or car!

The newest retailer on our directory Rideontoys4u has a great range of ride-on toys, bikes and scooters that can give this outdoor expense a whole new lease of life!

 

Your own mini playground!

 

Playgrounds closing was particularly hard on parents, a safe environment for kids to climb, swing, slide and ultimately wear themselves out.

This is not helped by the fact that they are still on full view and children know how much fun they have previously had there!

We don’t know when playgrounds will reopen or how comfortable we will feel going there.

If you have space then garden climbing frames, swing sets and trampolines can be a great long term investment. A place to play and learn right on their doorstep.

 

Virtually getting back to classes

 

Most classes have been postponed indefinitely and we all worry about how a big gap in learning will affect children in the long term.

Luckily there are a plethora of online classes in their place. Check if your cancelled classes have been taken online, if not there will be loads of local classes and even classes lead by celebrities such as Joe Wicks and Carol Vorderman.

If your technology is not up to the challenge, why not head to our directory, we have retailers such as Mac Store UK, who have a great range of finance options on new and refurbished laptops and tablets.

 

A friendly face is only a tap away

 

It is great news that restrictions are being lifted enough for us to have some long-awaited family reunions, but some of the more vulnerable are shielding and some just aren’t confident enough to start seeing others yet.

Video calling has been a staple of lockdown life and still being able to see close family has been one of the things that has kept us all going.

One thing that can stop us in our tracks is ageing technology that is not up to the task.

If you need a new phone we have some mobile phone shops in our directory, offering great finance options for an affordable upgrade.
