Getting ready for bed
We all know that getting kids to bed on time can be challenging to put it lightly. Quick counting activities like these will help make your bedtime routine easier and more enjoyable for both of you.

Get your kids to help a ‘book buddy’ to read. Buddies can be a younger sister or brother, or even a favourite soft toy. Letting your child help their book buddy to read will keep them occupied, and help them with their own reading.
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.
