Shop ’til you Read, Write, Count

Shopping is much more fun when there’s two of you. You could write a shopping list together, find the items and count the money at the checkout. This way, you won’t just get everything you need – you’ll have plenty of laughs along the way. Watch this short video to see all the ways you can make a shopping trip a shopping experience.

Handy tips

Plan your next party – write out a list of who to invite, and make your own invitations

Get your kids to help a ‘book buddy’ to read. Buddies can be a younger sister or brother, or even a favourite soft toy. Letting your child help their book buddy to read will keep them occupied, and help them with their own reading.

Pick somewhere your child goes to a lot – like their school, or the park, or a shop – and ask them to write down directions for how to get there from your home.
