Read the food labels and sound out the letters together
How to: Pick out packets or tins of food. Sound out the letters of each word and then blend them together to make up the word e.g. ‘pa’ ‘s’ ‘ta’– ‘Pasta’!
Ask your child what food starts with the letter ‘b’
How to: Open the fridge or cupboard and choose a letter. Say, for example, you choose the letter ‘b’ – ask your child to find all the words that start with that letter… beans, broccoli, bacon, baked potatoes.
Get ready for cooking together
How to: Find a recipe either online or in a book. Go for something simple like pancakes or a healthy flapjack. Encourage your child to read out the recipe and find the ingredients in the kitchen.
