Writing helps keep kids entertained, while they’re finding out about themselves and the world around them. Here are some activities you can do together which will help your child write, and enjoy themselves at the same time.

Making crayon rubbings of coins is a great way to help your child find out about the numbers on coins, and the different sizes of each coin.
Try taking it in turns to say alternate numbers to 30, while rolling or throwing a ball back and forth. Then, if you’re up for a challenge, try it backwards and in 2s. Start at different numbers, or if you don’t have a ball handy pat your tummy or clap your hands while you count.
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.
