Kirsty Hewitt was sharing childhood photos with friends over WhatsApp one evening to pass the time when she came up with the idea.

She said: "The kids loved it, and my face hurt from laughing. I think it’s massively important to try and have fun times during these unknown weeks - the children have lost all sense of their reality and routine, and it’s a very challenging time for us all. So doing something really silly definitely eases the stress levels for all

"The children loved doing it, looking at old pictures and sharing memories. I've had a massive response on my Facebook post, and hey seem to have brightened people's days."
