Activities and things to do at home

In addition to the regular newsletter and bulletins we provide to parents, carers and professionals registered with the Index in Cardiff. In response to the different ways we are spending our time during the Cornavirus we have set up this webpage to provide an easy means for you to find activities and things to do.

In addition to the activities and suggestions provided by services and organisations, we have further down the page invited parents, carers and professionals to send us their suggestions and ideas of what they are doing with their own families at this time.

Cardiff Parenting 0-18 is for any family expecting a baby, or with a child or young person aged 0-18 living in Cardiff.

A range of digital resources are available from Cardiff Hubs & Libraries Service for people to enjoy at home.

The electronic catalogue can be accessed here and has resources for adults and children, including a new book (pictured above) by illustrator Axel Scheffler and a team of experts to help children and families understand COVID-19.
