My DC are older so it's difficult, one (11) just wants to play on his x box or trampoline and the other is 15 so if off out with friends most days so I have to sit in and wait on them. I usually find by the end of the 7 weeks I'm going stir crazy. We're on week 3 as I'm in Scotland.

How old is little one? I love it to be honest..The children s centre often do activities, the park do a google search or fb for local activities, the lesuire centre by us run really cheap activities.

I am using the holidays to teach DS to cook, iron and household jobs ( what a joyful mum i am lol) He does enjoy them at the mo as they are a novelty..He learnt how to put a quilt cover on today..I can guarantee he won't want to learn as a teen. I want to teach him how to cook proper meals not just cakes...

The library often do stuff as well

That's a really good idea Bellemere. Have a few things organised but haven't sorted out a daily calendar of events. Maybe that can be tonight's activity once bedtime is done...

Yup. I draw up a calendar of activities for each day so that I don't have an endless number of days with nothing to do.

Anyone else find the school holidays really hard going? I find the lack of routine and isolation really tough sad
