Try some rhyme time
Coming up with words that rhyme is a great way to keep your child entertained for hours – and it’s guaranteed to get you both giggling.

When you’ve finished reading a story, ask your child to write or draw a new story about their favourite character in the book.
If you come across a new word while you’re reading a story, try making up funny sentences with the new word.
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.
