This lockdown period has changed our daily routines and the same happened with a mum who is self-isolating with her family.
Megan Paley from Leeds decided to make things a bit normal for her two children during the coronavirus lockdown.
The 31-year-old mother made a plan to recreate McDonald’s meal for her autistic son and it turned out very impressive and cheap. She told money-saving community LatestDeals.co.uk, “I looked up a template for the chip box online and copied it and colored it in.”
“We just grabbed some frozen chips, nuggets and burgers from M&S and just made the same order they get when they go. It cost us the piece of card and felt tip ink as we already had the ingredients in, so it cost us nothing in total!”
“I now know that they do a printable version online so would probably be easier to do that but I didn’t know about those at the time.”
The best thing is her son Ben loved her mom’s homemade McDonald’s and requested to make it every day during the lockdown period. “Ben absolutely loved it,” Megan said.
“He was very impressed and has asked for it to be a regular thing during the lockdown. We did it as we feel keeping a sense of normality is important when life throws you a curveball.”
She told how this quarantine period has made changes in her and everyone’s lives as our kids are now compelled to not meet their friends or play outside.
“Our kids had already gone through so much change with schools closing and not being able to see their friends and we just wanted to give them something they might usually do for a treat. Being able to give them that little bit of happiness is great when you cannot stick to your old routines.”
