Chilling with a magazine
Reading your favourite magazine with your child is a fun way to relax together. Going through the pages and finding pictures they like is a great way to keep them busy – and you get to enjoy your magazine, too. You could also try these activities with any old newspapers, flyers or magazines you’ve got lying around the house.
