After a day out
Getting out the house for the afternoon is a way to let children blow off some steam if they’re getting a bit stir crazy. It’s also a clever way to help them with their writing skills. Even a quick trip to the park is great for the activities below.
Draw a picture
Write about it
Make a story
Writing a list can be a great way for kids to use their imagination. Ask your child what they’d pack if they were going into the jungle? What might they find there, and would they need to include any special items?
Choose a letter of the alphabet, then ask your child to write down a food, an animal, a name, and a place that begins with this letter.
Get your kids to help a ‘book buddy’ to read. Buddies can be a younger sister or brother, or even a favourite soft toy. Letting your child help their book buddy to read will keep them occupied, and help them with their own reading.
