I LOVE this one. Recreate a famous work of art using only 3 household items. Check out a Getty images who inspired this activity for ingenious photos from the public and guidance on how to go about it. Looking at other people's attempts is just as fun as trying your own!

Make Your Own Comic Book
If your children are fans of DogMan or The Phoenix serials, and they’re fast running out of funny comic book style reads, then it’s time to make your own! The Cartoon Museum hosts a collection of free online resources to get you started. Children can work on developing their characters with some how-to guides, complete some partially-written spreads, or just dive right in and create their own. 
Whether or not you use the resources, it’s easy peasy to draw six boxes on any piece of paper, and young people can fill them in by drawing their day, one box at a time, to create their own ‘Lockdown Chronicles’ graphic-novel. Batman-style ‘POW’ and ‘WHAM’ starbursts recommended!

A bit late to the party with this one, but no matter. This June, the Wildlife Trust invites us to take part in their annual nature challenge, 30 Days Wild! You just have to do one wild thing a day throughout the whole month: for your health, wellbeing and for the planet. That’s 30 simple, fun and exciting Random Acts of Wildness.

The Roustabout Theatre Group have created a zoom specific, family adventure. A brand-new comedy for all the family to watch together!

When friends gather together for an online chat with the ever-grumpy Ben, they find that nothing they can say will cheer him up.

Pinching an idea from Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, they decide to dress up as figures from his past, present and future and teach him that, although we may be physically apart, we can still stay connected.

Silly, stirring & inspiring stuff for family audiences. Live online, tomorrow at 4pm. If you miss it, you can still check out a less interactive version on YouTube after tomorrow.
