Mini adventures for The Great Indoors

LittleBird are proud to be official partners and friends of Scouts, the UK’s largest co-education movement helping young people gain skills for life. And so when they told us about their fab new initiative, #TheGreatIndoors, supporting families at home, we thought we’d better share it with you! Packed with over 150  fun and inspiring ideas and activities you can explore, discover and create – all in your own home

They’ve made it super easy to search by length of activity, number of people and age so that you can find the best activities to suit your family. Here’s a quick guide on scout sections and age ranges; 

Beavers: 6 – 8 years old 

Cubs: 8 – 10 ½ years old

Scouts: 10 ½ – 14 years old 

Explorers: 14 – 18 years old
