Mark the date and time of an event on the calendar
How to: Choose a date – whether it’s a birthday, the school holidays or even a play date and mark it on your calendar together. Ask your child to find the right day and month with your help.
Countdown the days to an event
How to: Mark a special event on the calendar together. Ask your child to count on the calendar how many weeks or days it is until the event.
Plan an upcoming event together
How to: Plan a special event together according to the hours in the day e.g. at 10am the guests will arrive… Talk about how long each activity will take – lunch is 30 minutes, games are 20 minutes. When you’re done, encourage your child to write down your plan.
