Making a greetings card
Cards can be pretty expensive. The good news is, they’re also pretty fun for kids to make, and friends and family members will love getting them. Card-making also helps with writing, so it’s win-win-win. We’ve got some ideas to help you get started.

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.
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.
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.
