The Summer Holidays are on the horizon and you might be wondering… what in the world is there left to do with your kids? We are here to help with brand new at-home bingo to make the hours pass faster. This time we’re not just providing you inspiration for entertainment: — also bingo for chores to make helping you out around the house feel like a game.
Keep reading to find out what we’ve included in these bingo sheets (and some hints to help you complete them all!)
Easy ways to make the most of your summer
- Go for a walk
Follow our 4 steps to turn it into an adventure.
- Have a treasure hunt
Wrap some treats up in tin foil and hide them around the house to keep your little ones out of your hair for 10 minutes.
- Watch a new movie
Stuck for ideas? We’ve got some right here.
- Say ‘I love you’
Now, more than ever, those 3 little words mean a lot.
- Livestream a play
Take a break from Paw Patrol repeats, you know you’re dying to.
- Make paper dolls
It couldn’t be easier with these pretty printable paper dolls. Just download, print and play!
- Read a new book
Check out our anti-racism resource list for some ideas.

- Paint a picture
Some yellow and orange paint on a page can be a sunset if your little one believes it strongly enough.
- Write a postcard
Keep an eye on the blog for some fun templates to print, colour and send to your nearest (or furthest) and dearest.
- Call a friend
Even our kids are sick of Zoom by now. A good old fashioned phone call is the way forward when you can’t meet up in person.
- Have a picnic
Whether you’re off on an adventure outside or only going as far as the front room, read everything you need to make it happen.
- Go to the park
Try and make this summer feel more ‘normal’ (if you can remember what that is) with a run around your local park.
- Learn a new dance
Move your bodies and engage your minds – and get some bonus endorphins going in the process!
- Draw your favourite animal
Or, one of our favourite furry friends.
- Eat an ice cream
Do you really need an excuse?
- Visit a new place
You can do this now! Take your little ones on an adventure, just remember to stay 2m away from anyone you meet along the way.
- Plant some flowers
Because beautiful things can still come from lockdown.
- Feed the ducks
Don’t waste that panic-bought loaf of bread that’s currently going stale in your cupboard.
- Go for a bike ride
If your little one isn’t quite up to a big kid bike, try a balance bike to help them find their feet with our favourite way to travel.
