#AD We were recently gifted the KANO build your own computer kit.

So the UK has decided that all schools will be closed. Some schools will remain open to those who have parents that are key workers and to those who have a vulnerable child/children.

With majority of parents having to home school for the foreseeable future, parents are themselves making time tables of schooling activities.

I am sure I am not alone when I say that we have been giving some great resources from school, bloggers and other educational providers. But if you are looking for something educational and fun to do with your children, I highly recommend the KANO build your own computer kit.

The kit allows you to build a computer page-by-page. Children will have a blast connecting the board, buttons, bits and learning first hand how all the bits and bobs work together.
