5 TiPS TO KEEP THE KiDS ENTERTAiNED
Bad weather weekends and stormy nights can make keeping the whole family entertained feel like an impossible task in the winter months.
Check out PLAYin CHOC's ideas for beating the January blues with exciting activities to keep kids big and small entertained and excited about the world around them.
1. Become an animal detective
Add a bit of variety to your usual winter weekend walk by challenging them to find and identify as many examples of footprints, feathers and fur as they can. This is a great way to discover more about the wildlife featured in our Woodland ToyChoc Boxes!
2. Plan an indoor picnic
Picnics aren't just for summer! When bad weather keeps you in the house, an indoor picnic is the perfect way to get those couch-potatoes off their screens! Get the kids to help out with preparing healthy snacks, building a cosy picnic den from cushions, blankets and fairy lights, and sending out invitations to their friends (real and imaginary!).
Top Tip: JustChoc boxes are an ideal portion-controlled picnic snack!
3. Puddle jumping
This one's a no-brainer on rainy days. Wrap up warm, don your rain jackets and prepare to get messy. Nothing beats hopping up and down in muddy puddles, just don't forget your wellies!
4. Winter scavenger hunt
Scavenger hunts are great fun, whether indoor or outdoor. Task your little troublemakers to find or spot things either around the house or out and about. This is a great way to get them engaging their senses and exercising their inquisitive instincts.

5. Go star gazing
Take advantage of the early darkness in the evenings to teach your little ones about the universe! Consult the weather forecast, choose a clear night, wrap up warm, pack hot drinks and snacks (PLAYin CHOC will do!) and prepare to keep an eye out for shooting stars.
HOW WE COMPARE TO OTHER CHOCOLATE AND TOY COMPANiES
At PLAYin CHOC®, we are proud of the quality of our products and their positive impact on the world. We strive to create delicious and healthy chocolate treats that can be enjoyed by everyone, and are committed to eliminating single-use plastic and packaging.
VEGAN S'MORES RECiPE FOR BONFiRE NiGHT
A cosy bonfire, friends gathered around, and the sweet aroma of melted chocolate and toasted marshmallows in the air. It's the perfect setting for indulging in everyone's favourite campfire treat - s'mores!
A PLANET FRIENDLY SPOOKY HALLOWEEN
Every year, millions of pounds of chocolate and sweet wrappers, plastic pumpkin buckets, and rubber masks end up in our landfills. In addition to the environmental damage wrought by all this waste, the process of producing all this Halloween paraphernalia takes a toll on our planet as well.
Do you know if the chocolate you are eating is slave free?
There is nothing like having a sweet treat to brighten you or your child's day. But something that may not have crossed your mind is whether or not the chocolate treat you are eating is slave free?
