  • Keep a diary (this would be fascinating to keep and share with people in the future!)
  • Test your family (make a times tables or spelling test for them - who can get 10 out of 10? Test everyone in your family and see who gets the top score!)
  • Write a letter to someone in your family who doesn't live with you. Maybe they will even write back!
  • Make a postbox in your house and everyone can write letters to each other - take it in turns to be the post person and deliver the mail!
  • Play any board games you have. You could start a league table to keep a record of who wins the most and least.
  • Cook or bake together (even if it is as simple as making a sandwich together)
  • Write a book (will you be the next JK Rowling? You could even write a series of books about the same characters!)
  • Do some research about your family and make bar charts with the data (favourite colours, favourite foods and so on)
  • Interview someone in your family and find out things you didn't know about them.
  • Set up a points chart for things like keeping your bedroom tidy and doing household chores - at the end of each week, whoever has the most points is crowned "House Mega-Star".
  • Make play-doh (flour, a little salt and enough water to make a dough). What will make the best dough? More flour? More salt? Less water? Experiment to find the best play-doh recipe.
  • Household Olympics - every day run a different event (how about who can run up the stairs fastest? Or balance on one leg for the longest? Or do the most star jumps during the Eastenders opening music?)
  • Put on a concert (plan who will sing or perform what, find backing tracks on You Tube with adult help, rehearse, work out what you will wear, make a leaflet about it, make a poster to tell people in the house when it will happen)
  • Teach someone in your house some of the French you have learned. You could even teach the dog or cat, or even a teddy!
