2020 and now 2021 have been very different for everyone. For children, this has meant that everything they know as the norm has altered and there is now a ‘new normal’.
It’s quite hard to believe that we are only two months off a year from when the UK first went into lockdown and schools and business closed. When the bulk of the UK, or world even started to work from home, whilst simultaneously trying to educate children…almost a year!

Are you dreading explaining that Covid-19 trumps Christmas to your children this year? Fear not, for Yoopies has created the Guide to how to manage the holidays with children given the current restrictions.
