On the bus
Waiting for your stop on the bus or the train can be a bit of a drag, and kids can get restless. Read on for some activities that will keep your child occupied and help them write at the same time.
Write a list
Use your finger
Write your name
Read a book together and play I-Spy with the pictures – can your child find something in the book beginning with say P? Or D? You could try lots of other letters, too.
Get your kids to help a ‘book buddy’ to read. Buddies can be a younger sister or brother, or even a favourite soft toy. Letting your child help their book buddy to read will keep them occupied, and help them with their own reading.
Try breakfast by numbers, using your morning cereal packs to count the number of words beginning with the same letter. Or, for fun, you could try and find rhyming words together.
