Bear Grylls launches indoor activates for kids during the lock-down


March 20, 2020

Bear Grylls is encouraging children in isolation because of the coronavirus pandemic to try new activities and develop new skills.

Scouts have made more than 100 free activities, games and craft ideas available on their website - keeping young people busy as they while away time at home.

Grylls, who is chief scout in the UK, hopes the activities will help children channel their "huge energy in a positive way", with schools closed.

Each of the activities offered by the Scouts has its own goal, such as improving communication skills or problem-solving.

The resources are accompanied by "how to" sessions on Facebook Live where Scout ambassadors such as Steve Backshall and Helen Glover teach the activities.

Grylls said: "Without a plan, a week stuck at home for a family can be as tough as a week in the mountains.

"Whether you're climbing Everest, or just trying to make it through to bedtime, a little planning and positive spirit will make all the difference."
