A WEBSITE providing free activities, games and craft ideas for children stuck at home following the closure of schools today has been launched.

The coronavirus outbreak has closed schools while some families with children may be self-isolating during this period.

In response ScoutsCymru has launched the website offering more than one hundred free activities to help families have fun and develop skills for life and are all suitable to be done inside the home with one or two children and can be adapted for three or more.

Each activity has a clear set of outcomes, such as developing communication skills or learning how to problem solve, which will also support schools in their aim to keep young people learning in their homes.

The activities collection is called ‘The Great Indoors’ and can be found at https://www.scouts.org.uk/the-great-indoors

Scout ambassadors will also be holding Facebook Live ’how to’ sessions to demonstrate the activities while Scouts will also reach out to families to share activities and advice via social media, using the hashtag #TheGreatIndoors.
