Today we have a game about observing and remembering
You can play this with any small objects you have around the home – start with a couple until your child gets the idea. They may even want to challenge you!
Anyone in the family can play, and it is another good one to enjoy with loved ones during a video chat
We all have folk we miss at the moment, and young children are no different
Today’s idea is about how to help your child send a letter to someone they love and miss
Of course, you may have to do most of the writing. But you can use your child’s ideas for what to say, and they can make marks and add a picture, or even do some of the writing if they can
It is a great way to feel close to someone who is not with us, and to learn how to feel better when we are down. Children can also develop their fine motor skills and ideas about how texts work
Today’s idea is to turn your home into an island full of treasure that children can hunt for
You can send them off to look for items, and while they burn off excess energy they will be learning all about attention and searching, and developing their memories.
You can make the searches as easy or as tricky as suits your child. How many blue things can they find? Can they bring you two things at a time?
Or you can play online with family, friends or anyone your child might be missing seeing or playing with
Make a walk a treasure hunt – can you spot a traffic light? A bird? A cloud?
