As many people have spent a lot of time at home with their family recently, finding things to keep the whole family occupied may have been a struggle. A recent article by News Motability has gone into detail about some of the accessible activities to do with kids. The article was written in collaboration with Rough Guides editor Helen Fanthorpe and a few of her suggestions are listed below.

Head on a nature walk

A nature walk is a great way of getting some fresh air whilst also enjoying your local area. If your kids are feeling restless then think about planning a muddy spring walk in some of your local fields or along your nearest public footpaths.

Explore the local wildlife

Wildlife is all around, even if you live in a built-up area, getting the kids to look for wildlife, whether it is in your garden or a local park is a great idea and doesn’t involve spending any money or travelling any long distances.

Visit a museum, online

Although museums and other indoor venues are still closed, many of them are still offering online shows or guided tours that still give you a great glimpse at what they have to offer. Plan an hour to sit down with the family and enjoy some of the treasures on offer.

Enjoy storytime

Storytime is often saved for bedtime, but storytime can be a great way to keep the kids occupied at any time of the day. Read their favourite story or tell them about your best childhood or family story.

Cook up some dishes

Cooking is a great activity that is perfect for people of all ages. So long as they are supervised by an adult, children can bake their favourite cakes or have a go at helping with their favourite dishes.

All these activities are accessible and they are perfect for those who may have limited mobility or who rely on straight and curved stair lifts and are great at keeping everyone occupied whilst there are restrictions still in place.
