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

Play ‘guess what happens next’ when reading stories together. Kids have a great imagination, and it’s amazing what they can think up!

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.

Try spotting shapes together – how many circles, triangles or squares can your child spot in the room. After they’ve named the shape, they could look for other items with the same shape.
