More information


52 fun activities for the whole family, designed to help on days when you just don’t know what to do.

This tin of surprises is a great gift for families with kids aged approximately 5-11.  It’s full of double-sided cards with ideas that are perfect for wet winter weekends and long summer holidays. The parents can choose an activity relevant to the season or resources they have available

With the emphasis on spending time together as a family, the ideas are designed to be cheap and give you the chance to make memories, create adventures and have fun together.

As some of the cards are seasonal, they aren’t sealed in envelopes, however each box contains 12 envelopes so some cards can be sealed away for a treat, or they can be discussed and selected together and picked at random.

Want to make the gift personal?
The gift box can be personalised in six text colours, making this a perfect Father’s Day gift for Dad or why not use it to help plan activities in the school summer holidays.

Just click on your choice of colour and fill in the family name and your short message.

We aim to produce gifts that are 100% recyclable, and we encourage all those enjoying opening envelopes to recycle them after they’ve completed their activities.

Our boxes are 100% recyclable, and are constructed from ‘greyboard’ which is made from a mix of recycled and waste paper. The outer wrap paper is also recyclable.

Where possible the paper we use for our card and envelopes is sourced from FSC certified suppliers.
