World famous Safari Park opens its doors for a one of a kind experience
We liked this from Longleat Safari Park - A guided tour that features video footage and gives viewers the chance to still enjoy the experience of travelling through the world-famous Safari Park from your own homes. Visitors will begin their virtual journey among the giraffe and zebra of the East Africa Reserve before heading into the notorious Monkey Drive Thru!
The 30-minute tour also features close encounters with Longleat’s big cats, including their famous lions, as well as tigers, cheetahs and wolves.
Coronavirus - A book for children
Nosy Crow has announced a free digital book for primary-age children, illustrated by Axel Scheffler (illustrator of The Gruffalo) and written by staff at Nosy Crow. The book aims to answer key questions about the virus for five to nine-year-olds.
Scheffler added: "I think it is extremely important for children and families to have access to good and reliable information in this unprecedented crisis, and I hope that the popularity of the books I've done with Julia Donaldson will ensure that this digital book will reach many children who are now slightly older, but might still remember our picture books."
The publisher is asking readers to make a donation the the NHS if they find the book useful.
Join the Pug Star!
The Galaxy Pugs are on a mission to explore planet Earth and they need your Science skills to succeed.

This exciting KS1 Science game features Joe Wilkinson as the voice of Captain Squashbody, the leader of the Galaxy Pugs.
Create your own Zoom backgrounds
Whilst we are all staying safe by staying at home, it doesn’t mean we can’t use our imaginations and pretend to be somewhere much more exotic. Next time you are chatting on Zoom why not swap the bedroom for the jungle or the living room for a prehistoric land! Let your imagination go crazy! This amazing drawing was created by Dinosaur Expert Fred Major, aged 5 and picked as a favourite by Ethan.
It doesn't have to be just an image, you can also make a video background!
Turn ordinary things in the house into fun characters!
We are spending lots of time in the house lately and missing our friends … but with a creative eye, the casual observer can spy characters in the everyday objects all around us.
See if your child can find objects in the house that could be a character! Do send them into us via Facebook as we would love to see them.
This is Rolly who lives upstairs in our Creative Directors house and Vinnie who lives in our Designers hall cupboard! Yes we are all going slightly bananas in this lockdown !

Camp at Home
You don't have to go far to enjoy a camp out. The weather is looking good for the Easter weekend so why not pitch your tent in the garden! What can your hear? What can you see? Don't forget a torch and your favourite snacks!
Not got a garden? Why not make a den in the living room, grab some blankets and see what you can create!
The best thing about camping at home - if you get cold or hungry, or you change your mind, you can easily just head back to the comfort of your own bed!
Top tips for stargazing
We’ve really noticed how clear the sky is at night the last few weeks, we’ve seen the International Space station and the full moon - our eyes to the sky have been opened.
Grab your coats, find a cosy spot to lie down in your back garden or look out of your window.The longer you look up, the more stars you’ll discover.
And if you’re lucky, you may even get to see a shooting star whizz across the sky... what will you wish for?
If you’ve got a star spotter guide with you, you could try to connect the dots of constellations like ‘orion’ and ‘the bull’, but it can be just as much fun to find your own shapes. Stargazing is no.27 on The National Trusts list of ’50 things to do before you’re 11¾’.
