Ideas for writing

Some can be accessed on YouTube like the one below!
Blue Peter Badge Project
There are lots of ways to earn a Blue Peter Badge! Why not look at the criteria and make a family project out of it. Many of the badges you need to apply for through the post which at this time is not easy. You could collect together a project that you make during this time and send it off when the self isolation period is complete.
