The Queen's Platinum Jubilee: Fun ideas for the whole family 🇬🇧

With the Queen's Platinum Jubilee fast approaching, we're all looking forward to an extra bank holiday day and an extra day to spend with our loved ones! However the expectation of having to entertain the whole family can be overwhelming. Don't worry, Xplora is here lighten the load and give you some inspiration! 🇬🇧

Here are some fun ideas for the whole family to enjoy over the extended bank holiday weekend! ☀️ 

Street Party 🎉 

Wonder down through your local town and you're almost certainly going to find a street party! On Sunday 5th June, local towns and villages all across the country are closing their streets and throwing a party to showcase their local villages. Worried about your kids wondering off and not being able to find them? Set a safe zone on the X5 Play smartwatch that will alert you if they leave the street you're on, so you can all enjoy yourselves safely and securely.

DIY Royal crown 👑 

Everyone loves a bit of DIY and nothing says Royal Family like a glittery, shiny crown! Make your very own Queen's crown by following these simple instructions, here. If this isn't the best selfie opportunity ever, we don't know what is! Use the Xplora X5 Play camera to take some memorable photos!

Garden Party 🎊 

Bring the party to your own back garden! Invite round the neighbours, family and friends for the Royal occasion, all in the comfort of your own home. Tea, cakes, party hats and music are just some of the things you can do at home. You can even add in some party games! Try decorating some eggs with union jack coloured paints and use the Xplora X5 Play stopwatch to time who can run the egg and spoon race round the garden the quickest! How many Xplora steps do you think your little ones could collect running round the garden all day? 🏃‍♂️ 

Royal Tea 🫖 

Royal tea, home version. Head down to your local supermarket and pick up some scones, jam and cream and have your very own Royal tea party. You can even pick up a fancy cake display to ensure you really fit the part, here. Let the battle commence, is it jam on top or cream?! If the weather is on your side, pop a picnic blanket down in the garden or local park and enjoy your tea alfresco. Use your Xplora X5 Play smartwatch to take your best Royal Tea selfie!

Union Jack Bunting 🎈 

Another fun craft activity the whole family can get involved with! Get yourself down to your local Hobbycraft and create your very own union jack bunting! You can use this to decorate the house, garden or your street! Check out Hobbycrafts easy to follow step by step guide for the best bunting around, here.
