Kids activities

We all want our kids to spend more time being active and creative and less time stuck to their screens, but sometimes it can be a challenge to come up with new and exciting ideas for them to try. That’s why we’ve created Kids @ Homebase, to share all of our favourite low cost but high fun activities.


With seasonal ideas, outdoor activities and those all-important rainy day crafts, follow our step-by-step guides and watch your little ones get stuck into a new project.

Handmade Mother's Day


Get your kids involved in creating unique hand-crafted accessories that make great gifts and add a personal touch to your home.  From personalised wall art, coasters and trays to stylish hangers for indoor plants, we’ve put together some fun ideas to inspire you and your children. By using family photos, your kids’ drawings and even hand prints, you’ll know the accessories you make really are ‘one-offs’.



Getting kids outside in summer


We've got some great ideas on how to get them outside over the summer holidays creating, painting, planting, growing and most importantly, having fun.



Amazing autumn activities


Get kids out and about this autumn with family-friendly fun and games to ignite their enthusiasm for nature. They’ll find out how to keep mini beasts cosy this winter in an easy-to-make bug hotel, how to sow and grow seasonal herbs and how to create colourful crowns.


Wrap up warmly and find out how to make the most of autumn with the Skinny Jean Gardeners. 

Wicked Halloween Decorations


Kids will love making their own seasonally spooky decorations for Halloween with crafty tricks (and treats) from the Skinny Jean Gardeners. They’ll discover a new way to give pumpkins a Halloween makeover and how to use paint and glue to design a pair of gruesome gloves for their fancy dress outfit.


So don’t be scared, visit our Halloween pages and make this year’s decorations to die for.
