At home activities

Family doing crafts

We are all going to be spending a lot more time at home over the next couple of weeks and months. We know families are looking for activities to keep their children educated and entertained. We have put together some historical activities inspired by Buckland Abbey for you to enjoy.

Each week, there will be different educational activities for you to try out at home. 

All the activities are inspired by the history of Buckland Abbey including the voyages of Sir Francis Drake and the life of the Cistercian monks in Medieval times. 

We will include a mix of craft activities which can be used educationally or as a free time creative task.

We would love to see any examples of children's work or any pictures you wish to share on our Facebook page.
