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
Seasonal: Make a gift list for Christmas/the holidays – what’s on your list? What do you need to get for your friends and family?
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.
Kids love to talk about their favourite characters from their tv shows or cartoons they like. You could get them to write about them, too. Ask your child to say why they like that character? Are they funny, clever, do they have special powers?
