The covid cut, and 9 other times isolation with kids has gone hilariously, horribly wrong.

As we find ourselves well and truly in the thick of self-isolation, many parents are scrabbling for new ways to entertain their kids. 

Whether that be activities to do with the little ones or simple things to keep them preoccupied while they work, parents are trying it all. Baking, drawing, Bluey… anything that will keep them happy for an hour or two.

"My daughter, finally happily playing in her mud kitchen without me there, enjoying another cup of tea made of sand and water, made herself a poo smoothie (so she tells me!). She scooped poo out of her nappy and tapped the spoon ever so carefully into her empty yoghurt container."

"I did the dishwashing liquid and pepper in water experiment with my daughter - the one that shows how soap keeps germs away. Not only did it not work, but my four-year-old daughter tried to drink the water after. This resulted in her dry retching in the backyard for 10 minutes."
