This half term, it could be difficult to get out and take part in the usual activities you’d enjoy with your children, but if you’re looking for some virtual fun you can have from your own home while raising money to support children across the UK, the NSPCC has a few suggestions which could help.
If your young one loves baking, the NSPCC has enlisted the executive pastry chef from the iconic London store Harrods, for a masterclass on how to bake his special blueberry muffins.
The exclusive online half-hour class with professional baker Markus Bohr takes place at 11am on Wednesday, October 28, and he’ll take you through a step-by-step process to make muffins worthy of the world-famous department store.
Tickets are free, but there’s also an option to donate to support the NSPCC. Details of the ingredients you’ll need and how to book a place on the online masterclass are available at www.nspcc.org.uk/holidaycamp
Also on Wednesday, October 28, we’re welcoming children’s author and illustrator Sophy Henn for an exclusive reading of two of her stories and a masterclass in animal illustration.
Aimed at primary school-age children and their families, Sophy will read Pass It On and Super Duper You – stories about sharing joy and understanding different moods and feelings.
All you’ll need to take part is your favourite pen or pencil, some paper and your imagination. Again, places are free, but you can also donate to support the work of the NSPCC here: www.nspcc.org.uk/holidaycamp
