The Ultimate Guide to Keeping Your Kids Entertained During Lockdown

Sign up here for alerts when new content is added!

Team Banjo have been tracking all the great suggestions we’ve been seeing on the web for things to do with your kids (of all ages!) during the lockdown, we’ve compiled them into a detailed compendium of useful links & ideas and we’ve added a few of our own, so you have one ultimate guide to keeping your children entertained during the lockdown!

We hope you find it useful and that you’ll share it with your friends and family. Some of the content and lists have been sourced on social media and so in most cases, we are not able to reference where they’ve originally come from, so thanks to everyone who has contributed! If you have any more ideas you’d like to add to this resource, please email banjosguide@banjorobinson.com 

We’ll be updating this guide continually, so be sure to come back and check it regularly.  First published on 26th March 2020.
