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.

If you don’t have stairs in your home, you could count footsteps on the way to bed instead. You could try guessing how many steps before they reach their bedroom door? How many steps from the door to their bed? Then count them out to get the number.
When you’ve finished reading a story, ask your child to write or draw a new story about their favourite character in the book.
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.
