Snakes and Ladders

As we all know at the moment, life has its ups and downs. Do you ever wonder how we learned to cope with them?

Schools are on holiday in Highland, so this week’s ideas are all about playing and fun.

But Snakes and Ladders is also a great way to understand numbers and how to count. At the same time, we learn how to cope with setbacks (even funny ones). And the whole family can play and feel together at this time.

Already know how to play? You’ll find some ideas here to make it more fun (and amuse your child for longer) by making your own board – or taking it outside and being “living pieces”!

What do we learn by looking in a mirror?

Children can learn all kinds of things. They learn about themselves, their expressions and emotions. About how other people look and feel.

And it can be fun to see how different things look in a mirror. We can dress up, see how things reflect “backwards”. All the time we are learning science through play and chatting about what we see.
