Crawley Mumbler Summer Holiday Activity Sheet

The Summer Activities sheets were REALLY popular last year so I’ve updated for this year.  Once again, this free downloadable activity sheet is packed full of ideas for things you can do this summer with your Mini Mumblers – a lot of these are FREE and there is a mixture of things to do at home and out and about.

Get the kids to colour in each time you do something on here and make it an activity in itself!

This is by no means an exhaustive list, so keep checking the website for more ideas – there’s more being added every day!

If you’d rather pick and choose activities to suit your own family, I’ve also done a blank version for you to add your own activities to – if you’re going away somewhere you could also use this as a holiday activity planner!

Please feel free to tag me on FB or Instagram (CrawleyMumbler) if you do any of the activities or use the hashtag #mumblersummer so I can have a look at the great things you get up to 🙂
