7. Make a music video with photos together
It’s very 2010 but hey the early 2000s are back! All you need to do is choose some fabulous photos and a free video app will do the rest. You might even have the function built into your phone. All that’s left to do is put some funky music on it and you’re ready to walk down memory lane.
8. Deep clean the house
This is for all those tired and busy mums out there. When things have been hectic there is nothing nicer than coming home to a house that’s been freshly cleaned.
