3 steps to... En­ter­tain bored kid­dies

Chat - - ASK AUNTY NELLY -

1 Make a time cap­sule with the child and lock it away un­til their 21st birth­day. I made one years ago with my daugh­ter. She’s now 23 and she ab­so­lutely loved the mem­o­ries it brought back.

2 You don’t have to be Mary Berry to dis­tract kids with bak­ing. Even dec­o­rat­ing some ready-made bis­cuits with colour­ful ic­ing can be great fun, plus it cuts down on mess and means you don’t even have to use the oven! Just leave them to set in the fridge.

3 Is it rain­ing again? Well, who says a pic­nic needs to be out­side? Just grab some tasty fin­ger food, put down a blan­ket and spread out some cush­ions, and have one in the mid­dle of the liv­ing-room floor. You could even in­vite their favourite cud­dly toys. Who needs sun­shine, any­way?!
