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
Lots of kids are fascinated by space, and the idea of walking on the moon. You could take a chat about space travel even further, and watch some YouTube videos together, or interviews with astronaut Tim Peake. A question like ‘What would you take into space?’ could inspire some fun replies! And you could help your child to write down five items they would take into space with them.
Kids love to talk about their favourite characters from their tv shows or cartoons they like. You could get them to write about them, too. Ask your child to say why they like that character? Are they funny, clever, do they have special powers?
Create a tally chart, for example to find out the family’s favourite animal or fruit or TV show. You could also do it the other way round, and find out which vegetable or type of music is their least favourite!
