Activities, games, arts, crafts and recipes from over nine years of looking after primary school aged children. These ideas are either original or adapted unless otherwise stated. Please feel free to share these ideas and let me know how they went!

This one may need a little planning. If you are working at a child care center or after school care that does big orders once a term or every six weeks or so much sure you save all your boxes. While this means that your office or work space may become cluttered it is worth it in the end. You can either make it free art or define it with a theme such as robots.
Let the kids know what you expect of them, whether the activity is free o defined.
Let them go!
You may need to make sure some children aren't greedy though.
