Exciting virtual tours to take your kids in 2021

The covid-19 pandemic has been hard on parents, especially mums with young kids. During lockdowns, we were forced to teach, babysit, and work at the same time.

Many parents are still struggling to keep their pre-schoolers occupied. Virtual tours have been one of the most popular lockdown pastimes. If you are looking for a break from board games and hide-and-seek, consider exploring the world from the comfort of your home.

One Fine Dine a real master chef experience at home

I absolutely adore master chef, I am in total awe of all the chefs that go on there as I literally do not have a clue. It would be a dream for me to eat at Marcus’s Michelin restaurant.

They make up the most delicious food, deliver it to your door and all you have to do is heat it and serve it. I made master chef food, all by myself. OK, well I didn’t cook it. It felt amazing! This is the perfect gift for for 2021.

Like Scrabble, something Daddy and I used to play when we were younger. I remember having game afternoons, on a Sunday, with my siblings and Mum growing up. We liked Mouse Trap! Great game. Some of these games were meant to be travelling with us to Dubai. I stocked up on these little games as they are the perfect size to have in a backpack. I knew we would have long waits at the airport, the plane journey was long and I thought they would be fun to play with our friends when we got to Dubai. As we didn’t go, they actually still came in very handy as we have been playing them throughout lockdown. They are great family fun ...
