Fidget Frenzy? Let’s keep the kids entertained!

Is your child a fan of the fidget craze that’s sweeping the nation? Or perhaps they’re more into their arts and crafts?

Either way The Works has something to keep the kids entertained this summer. We thought we run through some of the favourite ways to keep them busy!

Fidget toys

It may feel like everyone has gone popping mad at the moment, with the Pop It become the must have toy in 2021.

TikTok has more than 2.5 billion people watching Pop It videos.

Hayley Dolman, senior buyer at The Works, told Newsround: “We’ve seen phenomenal sales, selling thousands every week.

“We knew this would be a real trend even though our stores were closed at the start or the year. In early February we air freighted stock in.”

The Works has a range of fidget toys including a wide selection of Pop It toys, creeblers, squishy bead balls and more.

Arts and crafts

Can we ever tire of painting, drawing and creating? We think not!

Whether it’s card making, canvases, acrylic paints, knitting or wooden crafts, there really is something for everyone to enjoy.

What better way to get the kids off of their devices then with hours of art supplies activities.

Finally, if your child would prefer a quieter moment after a busy day playing, why not encourage them to read one of the many books on offer at The Works.

From picture books, to top selling children’s authors, they can lose themselves in a story.
