Invite Your Children’s Friends Over for a Supertent Sleepover
If you’re worried that your children will miss their school friends during the summer holidays, why not invite them over. You can help them put blankets over the kitchen table and chairs to create a fun supertent. Or, if you would prefer to leave the bedding alone, you can buy an indoor tent. Remember to spread pillows on the floor to make it comfy for children to climb inside. You can then leave them to catch up, whilst you can carry on with your daily tasks.
Stock Up on Healthy, Tasty Treats
Popcorn, crisps and chocolate are those delicious treats that compliment a supertent sleepover. However, if you are more of a health conscious mum, why not stock up on carrot sticks, hummus and nutritious seeds before the bad weather hits. You could also become a member of a food delivery service. Then you can receive delicious, wholefood snacks in the post, without the need for going to shops. These foods are great for sharing and could be given to children that are over on summer holiday visits (please be sure to check for allergies).
Order Your Favourite Film
If your children are feeling bored, why not spend some time watching their favourite film on dvd in the warmth inside. You could pre order the latest musical, action or drama and relax in the comfort of knowing that you have prepared entertainment for bad weather.
Buy Ingredients to Make A Delicious Cake
If you are you a budding baker in the kitchen, why not roll up your sleeves and bake. Children love to create and get their hands dirty in the kitchen. You could even make it extra sweet and sell your cake slices in aid of a charity that you are passionate about. Remember to prepare beforehand and stock up on the essential ingredients.
Purchase the Latest Bestselling Book
If you and your children have you been dying to read the latest bestseller, remember to pre order it online or through your favourite bookstore. Bad weather is a perfect excuse to curl up under your cosy blanket and read a thrilling bestseller, epic memoir or nail biting horror.
Whatever the weather, make sure you are prepared with appropriate warmth clothing, essential food items, entertainment for children, and of course the ideal company.
