Activity planning

Children running up a hillWe have a wide selection of resources to help out of school clubs with their activity planning. Our collection includes:

  • Huge library of factsheets for hundreds of games, craft activities and recipes — specially selected for use at out of school clubs and all tried and tested on real live children

  • Alternative Festivals Calendar featuring unusual and unconventional festivals, each with a suggested themed activity, to help you plan fresh activities throughout the year

  • 10 sample play plans for different times of the year

  • Collection of links to other online resources to make the process of planning activities for your club easier.

You need to be a member of the Out of School Alliance to access most of the resources in this section. If you have not yet joined the Out of School Alliance you can sign-up today and start enjoying the benefits of membership right away.

Alternatively, if you do not want to join the Out of School Alliance at this time, you can still access our activity ideas by purchasing one of our collections of activity factsheets for out of school clubs and other childcare settings. Our Big Activities Pack features 110 activities to keep the kids busy throughout the year. Alternatively we have an activities pack for each season. For more information see:
