Local resources and activity ideas for kids...
With the schools closing and children at home now, We wanted to help kids and parents alike to make the most of their time at home together. So we're putting together a list of online resources, activity ideas and local businesses that are able to help. We'll also keep adding to our 'How to be Muddy' and 'Favourite Mud Pie ingredients' posts on social media (see Facebook and Instagram links below).
Rainbow treasure hunt: There is no official link for this, but around Kempshott in Basingstoke we're asking children to paint a rainbow and put it in their window... Then when you go for a walk try to spot as many rainbows in the windows are you can! Let's spread the smiles...
