Fiona, from Newbury, UK, sent in this great idea. Let’s take a look at it…

What did you do?

Bring a sense of adventure to the great outdoors, by creating these ninja templates! Great for framing different colours and textures as you explore how many different kinds of ninjas you can make. Clouds, water, pebbles, grass, leaves, mud…the possibilities are endless!

These made for a really fun and engaging way to discover what lies in your garden. The boys loved seeing how many different materials they could find and taking their own photos of what they made.

Do you have any other projects planned?

More of the same – we are moving onto sharks and dinosaurs!

Tell the Housebound With Kids community a bit about yourself…

Fiona, mum of two boys (9 & 6), fitness instructor, living in the UK. We love nothing more than being out and about in the Great Outdoors, exploring and adventuring!

How are you finding being housebound so far?

Thankful for our garden, and our lovely outdoor village space which has definitely helped us to feel less housebound. I’m amazed at how well the kids have adapted and taken everything in their stride, and grateful for the extra time we have had to spend together.

Do you have any tips for other parents?

Take the pressure off yourself – you don’t have to do it all! Find what works for you, and make sure you take some downtime for yourself – even if it’s 5 minutes for a cuppa in peace!

Has being part of our community helped you?

It’s so wonderful to have such a sharing community full of creative ideas and inspiration!
