With the children home for an extended period of time, I, like other parents have been looking at ways to entertain, occupy and keep them out of mischief. Whilst technology can play a part in our lives it shouldn’t be the first thing that we reach for when we hear those dreaded words…
“Mum, I’m bored!’
Thankfully, we have been sent a copy of 100 screen-free ways to beat boredom – a fantastic book to help fend off boredom whilst keeping the children occupied and creative, all whilst not staring at a screen!
