"Over the next few weeks we will be sharing new activities for children whilst at home, away from school," said Foster + Partners.
"We’ll include drawing, making, playing, thinking, reading, watching and other activities to keep them entertained - for at least a few hours!."
"We’re hoping that you’ll enjoy making them as much as we did," added the firm.
