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
Explore the Great Indoors and find your favourites. Here are some of ours.
