Throughout the year, there are many occasions and events we can still share, even when we're not together in person. Here we will add our ideas for themed and seasonal play activities you can do along with us at home.

Find more themes and seasonal play ideas from The Yard on our 'Themes and seasons' YouTube playlist.

Join The Yard team for some Burns Night play activities that you can do from home! Make your own tartan - you will need:

  • Paint (whichever colours you like)
  • A big piece of paper or card
  • A paintbrush (or just your fingers!)

Haggis, neeps & tatties messy play - you will need:

  • Mashed potato
  • Mashed turnip
  • Haggis
  • A bowl or tray to mash it all up in!

Bake along with us for Burns Night! You will need:

  • 185g soft butter (plus a little more to grease your baking tray)
  • 185g plain flour (plus a little more to help with rolling out)
  • 90g caster sugar (plus a little more for dusting on top)
  • A mixing bowl, wooden spoon, cling film, rolling pin, knife or pastry cutter, baking tray and cooling rack

Always remember to wash your hands!

Preheat your oven to 180C. The dough needs to refrigerate for one hour before baking, it takes around 45 minutes to bake and ten minutes to cool the finished biscuits.
