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.

Love from… me.
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!
When you’ve finished reading a story, ask your child to write or draw a new story about their favourite character in the book.
Writing a list can be a great way for kids to use their imagination. Ask your child what they’d pack if they were going into the jungle? What might they find there, and would they need to include any special items?
