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

Most kids love popping bubble wrap – and if you have lying around at home, why not have a bubble wrap race? Who can pop the most in a minute? You can count the burst bubbles together to find out.
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!
Playing dice games with your child is a simple way you can help them with their counting.
