This year, the usual range of events won't be taking place but there are still lots of opportunities to get involved. Take a look at the resources and activities on their website to give you some ideas of where to get started.

If you are still in need of inspiration some of our brilliant museums have lots of ideas for you to that will help to keep the kids entertained at home (and maybe even learning something at the same time.....ssshhh!)
