8 Activities to do with the kids over the Platinum Jubilee Weekend!

Written by Annabel Middleton

This Jubilee enjoy some craft,
Not to do so would be daft!
Make some strawberries and cream,
Your children’s faces will gleam!

1. Union Jack bunting

Why not start the day off by creating your own bunting! Not only will this entertain the kids for hours, but it will also leave your house Jubilee decorated. Grab some paper and string from around the house and get creative! Have all the flags the same, or each child may want to design their own, either way this is an easy activity to do this Jubilee bank holiday!

2. Victoria sponge cake
