Mum recreates McDonald’s Drive-Thru for her boys during UK lockdown


During these unprecedented, locked-down times, families around the UK have been trying to entertain their kids while confined to their homes and gardens.

It has been a breath of fresh air seeing photos and videos going viral showing the joy and ingenuity of a nation while their backs are against the wall amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Today, one such bit of ingenuity comes straight out of County Down in Northern Ireland and is quickly getting a lot of positive attention in Facebook group 'Family Lockdown'.


While locked down with the family, Anna Taggart managed to create a McDonald's Drive-Thru in her garden for her boys, who are both missing McDonald's as much as we are right now.

Posting the photo, she wrote: "We made ourselves a McDonald's Drive Thru... Hours of entertainment so far!"

Speaking to Anna, she told The Manc: "I had been keeping cardboard boxes in the garage each time we had something delivered in the hope that they would keep us occupied over the next few weeks!

"My boys (Noah 5, and Mason 4) were sad that McDonald's had closed, so we came up with the idea of making a McDonald's Drive Thru.


"The boys loved helping to colour it in and have played with it non stop since we finished it. It's amazing how an old cardboard box can raise everyone's spirits!"

Facebook Groups like these are providing an amazing outlet for families struggling with things to do with their children – and some of the content coming out of them has brought a smile on thousands of faces.

It's a grim time out there. Stay safe, and get creative!
