Give them the best summer ever

Kids love summer – no school, playing every single day – and we can help you make this summer their best ever, rain or shine, indoors or out. We’ve got some super cool things to make with cookie dough, a big favourite right now, and some hilarious activities to try like apple bobbing Vs welly wanging. Bring it on!

HAVE A FUN CRAFT-ANOON!

Come rain or shine, there’s always plenty to do with this week’s Specialbuys. From packs of paper to fun child-friendly paints, you can keep them happy for hours and hours, indoors or out.


  • Entertain them all summer long
  • Plan ahead before they break up. Think picnics in the park and exciting things to make. Have ‘craft-anoons’ where you can do indoors activities when it rains and on sunny days, take everything out in the garden.
  • Shop Specialbuys

Welly Wanging VS Apple Bobbing

Try our Friday challenge. Jonny thinks welly wanging is the best activity for the back garden, whilst Alistair is a big fan of apple bobbing. But who wins? The only way to find out is to try them out with our very simple rules, telling you how to play and everything you need.

Jonny’s Welly Wanging

You’ll need a run up to get a good distance, so agree how many steps you can take before being disqualified, throw and get your tape measure out to see who’s has gone the furthest.

Alistair’s Apple Bobbing

A waist high tub with not too many apples in is best. You need to keep your hands behind your back while bobbing or you will be disqualified. First one to ‘bob’ an apple in 20 seconds wins!
