I always stress out when the kids start their half term holidays, mainly because I am always at a loss at what to do to help keep all the kids entertained. Having the age range of 18 months to 10 years old doesn’t help either. This is because normally the activities I have planned for the older kids are too hard for E and baby to take part in and vice a versa.
That was until I told about the great website Twinkl.
It is and amazing education resource site that can be use for home education or by teachers and parents that what to help their children learn and get the best they can out of education. The site is aimed at children under the age of 10 and is full of great ideas and activities for all children of all ages and levels of education and ability.
I really enjoyed taking a look around the website to see everything it had to offer. I love the fact that it had resource for the EYFS, KS1, KS2, KS3, EAL and best of all SEN. Because it meant that I could look at and print off resource to help all my children (including Baby) with their education and that there were activities for older kids and print out flash cards to help Baby.
I also enjoyed the new feature that means you can create your own learning resources on Twinkl create based around thinking you and your family enjoy or for any upcoming projects you may want to work on together.
There are 3 levels of subscription on the website, such as:
- Free Membership – this allows you access to a majority of the resources
- Gold Membership – this is the low cost high quality option and cost £29.95 a year
- Platinum Membership – this allows you access to all the resources and cost £44.94 a year
Plus they have a forum in which you can talk to professionals or fellow parents and home educators to support each other and swap ideas as a community.
My boys were super excited when they saw all they even had a MineCraft activity and resource section and begged me to start printing them out!
They were very eager to start building their own little MineCraft world.
I was just happy with how easy it was to navigate throught such an brilliant site that has an abundance of ideas, activities and study aids that you are bound to find something to keep the whole family happy and also make learning a easier and more fun experience for everyone.
And thanks to Twinkl I was able to make it through another half term with some happy and entertained children.
I really suggest you take a look and see for yourself just how great the site truly is.
