If you're going to be taking time off with the children during the school holiday, arts and crafts superstore HobbyCraft has conjured up a few crafty ideas to help you keep them amused.

In fact, they've come up with a host of activities that you can enjoy without ever having to step outside your own front door or switch on a TV or computer screen - from playing games and telling each other stories to a whole host of crafty activities that the kids will love to do.

Whether you create hand painted pictures, colourful mobiles, pom pom friends or springy pets, young children especially will love the attention and time you spend with them - you could even get together with friends and have a kid's craft party.
