School Closures

In these difficult times it is important for all of us to take a breath and do what we can to help.

With schools closing down all over the world, parents are finding themselves juggling working from home with looking after and entertaining their kids. We are all worried about keeping our families safe, particularly our older loved ones and any members of the family with health problems. Some of us are quarantined or self-isolating too. It's putting us all under tremendous pressure.

School Closures - Free Activity Packs from Activity Village!

Our Little Bit to Help

We've pulled together some of our favourite activities into the bundles you see below - and for the next few weeks at least we are making them free for everyone to download.

We hope these packs of printable activities will help keep kids busy and engaged. Obviously we can't replace our wonderful teachers, and these resources are "fun" rather than educational, but perhaps we can offer some inspiration and distraction, and take the pressure off just a little!

We don't need your email address and there's no catch or subscription necessary. Just click on the links below and download away!  Just take them and enjoy, tell your friends and family, and share.

We will all get through this together.

Washing Hands

With the help of some of our Facebook community we have translated our Washing Hands Collection into a number of different languages. If you don't see yours below, think it might help and can contribute a translation, please get in touch here (look for the Contact Us link at the top right of the page) and we will do our best.
