Homes for your (new) Hobbies - Kids entertainment

Homes for your (new) Hobbies - Kids entertainment


With home schooling now the norm, parents everywhere have been transforming dining tables into desks, loft spaces into laboratories and gardens into gymnasiums.

Separating ‘school’ time from playtime can be a challenge when you’re restricted by space. So we’ve collated some great homes with ideal areas for kids to keep themselves amused during break and lunch times – hopefully giving their new teachers some time for a breather too!

Parent Club Scotland published a website with useful resources for parents:
We know how hard it is being a parent right now, and how easy it is to feel overwhelmed 
So don’t be hard on yourself when things don’t go to plan – being there for them is what matters most 
Parent Club is here for you, with tips and advice to help make these times a little bit easier
