Online Classes and Activities for Kids

Well done for surviving this far with kids to amuse at home but if you’re like me then you might be wondering what you’re going to do from now to the end of term and then right through the summer holidays.  My boys have been missing the after school clubs they took part in so I’m on the hunt for a variety of activities.

I’ve had a good look around and been passed on some recommendations so hopefully you’ll find some great options for online classes and activities for teens, tweens, preschoolers and inbetweeners.

Cultivating Wonder deserves to have a very big shout out as it can be so difficult to find something that will captivate teens and tweens.  The online photography course for children aged 5 to 9 years and 10 to 16 years starts on Monday 3rd August.  What really appeals to me is the very unique combination of photography and mindfulness with the promise of a little sprinkling of magic.  Designed to awaken a sense of wonder about the world, it takes children on a voyage of exploration and creativity through photography. They’ve had amazing reviews from their last course and I’m looking forward to joining my boys as they try it out.  CLICK HERE to find out more.
