As we can't get out to visit exciting places as we would normally do at this time of year, why not bring these places to your home instead? Here are some fun ideas for you:
Why not visit the Zoo! Since you can't visit them at the moment, Chester Zoo is opening its virtual gates to you! You can join in the fun as you are taken on a virtual tour of the zoo for a whole day of animal antics, fun facts, and exclusive behind the scenes knowledge from their amazing zoo keeper team! Click HERE to go to their website!
If you want to go further afield, why not visit the San Diego Zoo in the US. It has live web cams and a fantastic site just for children. Clicking HERE will take you straight there!
Take a tour of a museum! The Metropolitan Museum of Art has a phenomenal website #metkids, which is just for children. Made for, and by kids, get ready to explore over 5000 years of art from all over the world. With fun facts, project ideas and lots of behind the scenes videos, you can take the first step by clicking HERE.
Bring the Harry Potter World to your home! Always a favourite, there is now a new Harry Potter At Home hub with lots of ideas and activities to bring the wizarding world to your home. Wave your wand and click HERE to go through the portal!
If you need some new ideas for things to do at home, why not go to the Scouts.Org site, 'The Great Indoors'. With activities such as building a teeny tiny twig raft or creating a mini tornado, there's a lot of fun to be had! Click HERE to go directly to the site.
You can get some great ideas for healthy snacks to make by going to the 'Simply Delicious, Simply Yummy' YouTube Channel made by our meal provider, Chartwells UK. There are updates three times a week, with recipes such as Pea Pond Slime and Selfie Pizzas! We’d love you to send in some photos if you have a go at these! Click HERE to visit the site.
It's important to keep yourself fit and healthy. Our friends at Inspire+ are posting fantastic fitness videos where you can join in with their Sport Ambassadors including Sam Ruddock and Sophie Allen, who are regular visitors to Belmont. You can find the site by clicking HERE. Get the whole family involved!
It's important to take breaks from games and videos, so what to do when the technology is turned off? Why not have a go at keeping fit with the 'What's Your Name' activity (use your middle name too to make it harder!), or try one of the 25 suggestions on the flyer from Pobble.com.
Finally, we are still running the 30 day Lego Challenge! We have had some awesome entries so far - just send a photo of your creations to Mr Allsopp or post it on Twitter with the hashtag #Belmontlego. Today is Day 6 - 'You are stuck on Mars and need to build a new ship to get home'. Can't wait to see them!
We hope the holidays go well for you and wish you a very happy Easter.
