Down the park
These handy ideas are great for when you’re out and about getting some fresh air with the kiddlywinks.
Count things on the way
Adding up around the park
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?
Play ‘guess what happens next’ when reading stories together. Kids have a great imagination, and it’s amazing what they can think up!
Pick somewhere your child goes to a lot – like their school, or the park, or a shop – and ask them to write down directions for how to get there from your home.
