Encourage your child to put pen to paper and let their imagination run wild – you won’t believe what they’ll come up with, and these activities will keep them busy for hours.
Who’s coming to tea?
Drawing book and pencils
Get your child to think up a tasty feast their toys might enjoy – and then get them to write everything down in a shopping list. They could think about how many potatoes they’d need to buy? What’s for dessert?
Put some music on, dance around, and get your child to count out different actions with you – like 10 hops or 16 jumps – in time to the music. It’s a good way to use up some excess energy too!
Ask your child to write about a castle they would build for a King or Queen. They could think about how many rooms it would have, what might be in the rooms, and what they’d be used for.
