FREE Downloads


We all need a little back up plan when the weather lets us down. We have created some completely FREE downloads which are all short activities that the kids can do at home or as a time filling activity. All you need is a printer. Some are colour downloads but printing in black & white is fine, it wont affect the activity.

Let's prepare for summer and make some plans - this bucket list download gives the children a chance to make plans of their own. Download here.

If you need some ideas to get your bucket list started, check out our 50 Things To Do This Summer list or the next installment, 50 MORE Things To Do This Summer.
