Five Minute Mum: On the Go

Five Minute Mum: On the Go

From long journeys to family gatherings, easy, fun five-minute games to entertain children whenever you're out and about


Ideal for children (little and big) to keep them busy and having fun on the go, whether you are travelling, on holiday, at family get-togethers or even waiting at restaurant tables.

Daisy Upton gets difficulties of having kids when you're on the go. So, to help you (and herself!) she's created quick, easy games that keep children interested, learning and out of mischief - they take 5 minutes to set up and 5 minutes to tidy up. And as Daisy was a teaching assistant, your little ones will be learning while they play! What could be better?

Packed with 80 games to keep little ones happily - and quietly! - occupied while you're out and about, ON THE GO is the perfect companion for anyone who wants five minutes peace when they're on the move with their kids.

"I love Five Minute Mum. She's managed to come up with a huge array of activities for kids that are fun and educational yet don't require an Art degree or Diploma in Patience to execute." Sarah Turner, aka Unmumsy Mum

About the author

Daisy Upton

Once upon a time, Daisy Upton was a Teaching Assistant working in schools, where she drank hot cups of tea. But when she had her own children, she found she never quite managed to drink a brew while it was still remotely warm. So she started putting her TA skills to good use and coming up with five-minute games, not only to support her children's learning, but also to buy her time for that cuppa. She shared those games online and it turned out quite a few other people wanted to join in too. Daisy now has a large social media following, a website and four books, including a bestseller. Daisy likes to celebrate this fact by eating large quantities of chocolate oranges and creme eggs (season dependant), and dancing in the kitchen.
