31 days of activities for kids at home: Includes checklist

So that’s a wrap. We have completed the 31 Days of Activities event on the site, and we’ve now got a whole month of activities for kids at home for you to have fun with! And the best thing about them all is that every single one of these are activities for the kids to get stuck into are free. All of them require little prep too, so you can get going with what you typically have already in the house!

Why not take any month, or any 31 days and try one of them a day with our daily challenge for getting the kids playing and active again? If you need a bit of help with doing this – sign up for the 31 days of activities newsletter and we will send you the activities for kids at home for 31 days from whenever you decided to sign up!

We have put together a companion printable for this, so you can tick off each activity as you give it a go too, making these activities for kids even more fun for you to try out with the family.

We have loads of other daily challenges on the site for you, including other 31 days of activities and learning that we have done in the past.

These give you even more activities for kids at home, and don’t forget the indoor activities that we have as well – there are 100 of these! Inspired by the pandemic, but valid for indoor play anytime.

Our 31 days of activities are incredibly popular with schools and parents, and this set have some amazing ideas within it, from sensory rainbows, to play dough and beach Olympics. We can guarantee that there is something for everyone in these ideas.

Some of the ideas include:

  • Day 1: Having birds in the garden is wonderful, and every educations, so why not learn how to make a cookie cutter bird feeder and check out what birds are regular visitors to your garden,
  • Day 5: Have you ever heard of Fluffy paint? Neither had we before we did this event, and now we even know How to make fluffy paint thanks to this fabulous recipe,
  • Day 9: Get tuck in and green with our litter picking scavenger hunt, which comes with a free printable
  • Day 19: We love sensory play, and do have a few ideas for this already on the site, but this idea for how to make a calming sensory rainbow is colourful and gorgeous, check it out on day 19!
  • Day 24: We love a bit of nature play, and a few of the ideas within our 31 days do take the kids outside from time to time, hopefully though if you need to stay close to home you can find the materials for this nature crown in your garden, and
  • Day 31: Our final ideas are actually more than just one! We have a few summer boredom busters for the kids to try!

So much to choose from for these activities for kids at home, plus everything else that we have on the site in our learning activities and printables sections.

If you don’t manage to keep the kids busy with all of this, well somewhere along the line, you’ve miss something! 😂

Every day within the calendar has the activity and a checkbox for you to tick the ideas of as you go along.
