Busy ‘B’ Home Activities to keep kids occupied


As the world is faced with the devastation that is Covid-19, one thing is becoming very clear: self-isolation could well stop this highly contagious virus in its tracks.

But how do we keep our kids positively engaged during this time? READ Educational Trust, believes that one should keep enquiring young minds active.

For this reason, READ is offering parents and children across South Africa access to a series of home activities called Busy ‘B’ Home Activities, during the period of mandatory lockdown.

The Busy ‘B’ Series is set to help you keep your children positively engaged at home. READ is catering for kids from Grade 4 through to high school. Types of activities include a self-discovery game, to stimulate conversation and set imaginations alive; a newspaper race game (great to use those free weekly newspapers delivered to many of our gates!), treasures in our lives (encouraging gratitude in our children), and people we treasure! And many more…

All the Busy ‘B’ activities are sourced from our hugely successful Readathon Red Reading Box series. Released annually for the past seven years, the Red Reading Boxes are filled with activities, games and stories to encourage reading skills and literacy in children from Grade 4 through high school.

For those parents who would like to find out more about the Red Reading Box series, please feel free to visit https://thereadshop.co.za/, where they may be purchased. With every literacy product purchased, 100% of profits will be used by READ to further our literacy promotion in disadvantaged communities.
