Dip into different worlds
Books are a great way for kids to discover how things work – whether it’s the world around them, or feelings and emotions. Books open their minds to new experiences and fresh ideas – so they’re perfect for keeping your child entertained on rainy days, and keeping their mind occupied at the same time.
Happily ever after

You be the critic
Next time you’re in a shop, get your child to look for prices and check how much different things cost. You could turn it into a bit of a treasure hunt, and look for items that cost more than and less than £1. Or look for any item that costs £2 exactly. If something is on offer – 2 for £1, say – you could help your child work out what each individual item costs.
Plan your next party – write out a list of who to invite, and make your own invitations
Seasonal: Make a gift list for Christmas/the holidays – what’s on your list? What do you need to get for your friends and family?
