On your phone
Sending messages to pals and family members is something we all do every day. Getting your child involved with writing and sending messages is also great fun for both of you – and a good way to keep them engaged whether you’re at home, or out and about.

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!
Try spotting shapes together – how many circles, triangles or squares can your child spot in the room. After they’ve named the shape, they could look for other items with the same shape.
Choose a letter of the alphabet, then ask your child to write down a food, an animal, a name, and a place that begins with this letter.
