Fun Things to Do with the Kids When Lockdown is Over


As nurseries, schools and colleges remain closed due to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, millions of people are dreaming about what they’ll do when the current crisis is over. If you’re feeling cooped up at home, planning how you’ll spend your time post-lockdown is a great way to calm your mind. For inspiration, take a look at these top ways to have fun with your kids when lockdown is over…
Travel
Currently, only essential travel is permitted which means no holidays, days out or even trips to family member’s and friend’s houses. Due to this, travel is bound to be at the top of your list when it comes to activities to enjoy after lockdown. 
With so many places you’ll be eager to visit, the only trouble you might have is deciding where to go first! If you want to ensure that your child hasn’t missed out on learning due to the restrictions, educational travel could be your best bet. Visiting notable sites or planning trips to destinations related to their curriculum won’t just be a fun way to enjoy your freedom, it could be a great incentive to encourage your kids to crack on with their schoolwork while they’re at home. 
Have a picnic
As well as being restricted in terms of where we can go, lockdown means we can’t enjoy meals with our family and friends either. With many people desperate to see their loved ones in a face-to-face setting, a picnic is the perfect post-lockdown activities. 
In addition to enjoying the great outdoors, you can share an alfresco meal with your nearest and dearest when you opt for a picnic lunch or dinner. Whether you head for your local park, take a trip to the countryside or incorporate it into a fun-filled day, you’ll be relishing the opportunity to grab a bite and relax with friends and family in the sunshine.

Visit the coast
There’s no doubt about it, being stuck inside for so long makes you long for nature’s finest sights. If you’re dreaming of watching the waves roll in and breathing in the salty, sea air, then a trip to the coast is your top post-lockdown priority. 
As national travel is likely to be permitted well before international travel options are available, you can make up for missed vacations and minibreaks by heading to UK seaside towns and coastal retreats with the kids instead. From the White Cliffs of Dover and the Cornish coves to Norfolk’s Broads and Scotland’s sea lochs, there is no end to the delights on offer. 
Keeping Kids Entertained During Lockdown
If you’re struggling to find ways to keep your kids entertained throughout the lockdown period, ask them to plan a list of all the activities they want to do. As well as helping you to create a custom post-lockdown itinerary, you can find innovative ways to modify their favourite activities. With a little ingenuity, you’ll find many activities can be customised to fit within lockdown restrictions and will keep your kids busy until normal life can resume.
