Have Fun With Cooped Up Kids
A book of activities and games to do with children who are cooped up, written in pre-tech days when I was cooped up in a concrete inner London environment with young children. You don't need equipment or fancy kit. Have a 'menu' of things on offer, they never want to do the one you have in mind!
I am offering this book free to help families at this time of lockdowns.
