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.
Find opportunities for equal sharing (e.g. 3 grapes each)
Keep old envelopes and flyers to write on
Draw your child’s attention to signs and posters when you are out and about
