A series of amusing photographs have revealed what children have really been getting up to amid lockdown.
While many parents up and down the UK have been tasked with homeschooling amid the coronavirus pandemic, if the mess in these photographs is anything to go by, it seems art has been the most popular extra-curricular activity on the rota.
It comes after a nationwide survey of parents revealed over half of mums and dads have turned their backs for a few seconds, only to find their little darlings had tipped food all over themselves.
Meanwhile, a third have discovered felt tip drawings on the sofa, while the same number have had their children come in from the garden covered in mud.
Rosa Carpanini from Regina Blitz, who commissioned the study, said: ‘This study shows that cleaning up can be stressful, but creative and messy play is actually good for our kids.’
Here, FEMAIL shares photo evidence of children caught in the act – including being smeared from head-to-toe in paint and emptying kitchen cupboards.
