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
Next time you’re in a shop, get your child to look for prices and check how much different things cost. You could turn it into a bit of a treasure hunt, and look for items that cost more than and less than £1. Or look for any item that costs £2 exactly. If something is on offer – 2 for £1, say – you could help your child work out what each individual item costs.
Plan your next party – write out a list of who to invite, and make your own invitations
You can play guessing games anywhere and everywhere. It’s an easy way to make a walk to school, or a car or bus journey more fun. Just think of a number between 0-30 and get your child to guess what it is. You can help them by saying ‘higher’ or ‘lower’.
