Parents panic over keeping children entertained during the Easter holidays

Schools are breaking up for the Easter holidays and according to new research released today 90% of parents are not necessarily looking forward to this period as they have concerns over keeping their child entertained. Over two fifths (42%) of parents have even said they’ve been feeling anxious or worried in the lead up to the holidays.

The cost of living crisis is affecting many across the nation so it’s no surprise that, according to the Fruit Shoot research, the biggest worry for the majority (57%) of parents is the pressure around the expenses needed to keep their child entertained over the holidays.

In a bid to support parents, Fruit Shoot have created a bespoke activity booklet with loads of activities that children and adults can do together this Easter holidays, which can be found on their website.
