MUMS are praising The Works for selling ‘stay at home packages’ for stressed out parents in the lockdown.
As schools close from today and kids will be at home 24/7, the department store put together the kits for mums and dads.

Costing £6, they contain a range of fun crafts to keep little ones entertained, including colouring pencils and activity books.
Spotting them in her local store, one mum shared her find to Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK.
She said: “The works are doing stay at home packs, prices vary depending on contents, cheapest I saw was £6 and had a good amount in it.
“Could be a good idea for kids when the schools close tomorrow.”
