Children really like looking at newspapers and magazines. They’ll love reading ‘grownups’ stuff and looking at the pictures with you. Show them football scores or chat to them about the stories – it’s a great excuse for some quiet time and a wee cuddle together.
Talk about how long everyday events take (e.g. cooking times, journey times)
Ask them what game they enjoyed playing at break-time
Children love being read to – even when they can read themselves
