Many members of our team here at Nabuh have young children and we understand the pressure parents around the UK are now feeling financially. Many parents are now working from home or unable to work due to the government guidelines or simply because they now have no childcare.

We have put together some energy cost-free ideas for you and your children to help keeo your energy bills as low as possible.

 

Build a fort inside your living room or children's bedroom and fill it with their favourite books or toys. It's a nicie way to create a calming place within your home if your child is feeling overwhelmed and unsettled with the current life changes.

If your children received paints or craft items for past birthdays/Christmases, why not get them out and encourage them to get creative? They can use this as a way of expressing their thoughts and feelings around this time.

 

A great thing to do as a family would be to wipe dust off the board games living under your children's beds and swap your evening shows for a board game. This is a great way to get your children interacting and learning.

Playing in your garden as a household is encouraged. Things like messy play, imaginary games and football can all be done outside. This will not only release some of your children's energy but also will help them to pass the time!
