Unfortunately The Book People are closing down. This does however mean good deals to be had on both kids and adults books.

There’s a Hobbies, Interest and Puzzles section and Children’s Activities section that may be useful.

J.K Rowling is releasing the audiobook (read by Jude Law) of Tales of Beedle the Bard this Tuesday here [www.audible.co.uk]

To celebrate, why not turn your house into Hogwarts this week. Gotta be the best school out there.

Make yourself into a suitable teacher with a graduation cap style hat out of board and a cape.

Make some wands out of garden twigs and paint them or wrap with foil etc and let your kid pick the wand they want for the week (or let the wand pick them you are a stickler (get it?) for the book.

Make a sorting hat. Instead of choosing a House it can contain fun things or treats (written on paper) and they get to pick from it once a day or every now and then.

Decorate the room with anything spooky or Hogwartsish.

If you are into “lessons”, theme them eg Magic (Science), Spells (poetry) etc etc.

Invent your own butterbeer (coke floats anyone?)

Challenge them in some activity to win a golden snitch (ferrero rocher with paper wings stuck on).

This one is a paid for product, however the money is for UNICEF so worth considering if your child likes Paddington.

A good ice lolly hack -
Make a small cut in the lid of a petit filou,
Poke a teaspoon in
Freeze the whole shebang
Eat once frozen.

If you have family “stuck in” in different parts of the country like us, we find it uniting to all listen to the same local radio station together or to listen to theirs if they are out of London. It feels different than listening to the usual stations we find.

Here’s a crafty idea from Plonk Crazy Golf. They suggest we design and build our own tricky crazy golf holes using bits and bobs from around the house and share them using the hashtag #PLONKATHOME to win prizes. For a Ł5 membership, they will release videos, design packs and live lessons to help you make mini-golf courses out of upcycled materials, as well as a discount voucher for tickets down the line, all while raising money for Lennox Children’s Cancer Fund. Even if you don’t want to pay, a browse of their site could give you some good crafty project ideas.
