With life as busy and time as scarce as it is for most mums, it can be hard to spend active quality time with your kids; that’s where Flora’s Family Fun Guide comes in.
 
It’s designed for those days when you’re in desperate need of inspiration to stop the kids from uttering the words dreaded by all parents: “I’m bored.”
 
These activities were created to be done easily and in a small amount of precious time. Every idea is simple to set up and won’t require loads of tidying up afterwards.
 
Kids love to bake, but we all know how quickly the kitchen can descend into disarray once the flour comes out. Flora’s philosophy is that family baking is about having a good time, not creating a perfect masterpiece. That’s why they’ve compiled some simple recipes to keep the kids’ happiness levels up and Mum’s stress levels down.
 
Take their Easy-Peasy Cupcakes, for instance – this all-in-one recipe needs just 15 minutes prep, five ingredients and one bowl. Perfect!
 
If crafts are more your thing, you can make the Egg Carton Crocodile in 15 minutes or set up the Secret Den in just 10. This gives Mum a golden opportunity to bond with her youngsters, while keeping them entertained and giving them great memories of time spent with their favourite person.
 
Hands-on crafts are a brilliant way for children to learn and improve co-ordination without even realising, while active play with parents teaches kids important skills, such as sharing. It also shows them that iPads and computers aren’t the only way to have fun – there’s life away from those screens!
 
Flora’s Family Fun Guide was overseen by parenting author Tanith Carey, who has written How to be an ‘Amazing Mum’ When You Just Don’t Have the Time, and Taming the Tiger Parent: How to put your Child’s Wellbeing First in a Competitive World.
