Handy tips

Kids love doing grown-up things. So the next time you pop out for a few things at the shops, why not let your child have a go at counting out and paying at the till?

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.

Writing a list can be a great way for kids to use their imagination. Ask your child what they’d pack if they were going into the jungle? What might they find there, and would they need to include any special items?
