Sing a rainbow

We’ve had all the weather the last week – snow, hail, sunshine. And if we are lucky, there are some rainbows about too

Rainbows are even more special right now as a sign of hope and the love and care we have for each other

The great thing is, even if there isn’t one in the sky – you can sing your own!

Today we have a lovely song that helps your child learn about colours and rhythms. But it is also a really comforting one to sing or dance to together

Lots of play ideas for drawing and for finding out too

Scottish Book Trust have done a nice version with Makaton on this link

Where’s that sheep?

A fun rhyme today about some naughty sheep who get lost – poor Little Bo Peep!

Losing things and finding them is all part of life, and this is a gentle way for children to learn about it and how to cope

And we have some ideas for turning this into a game of hide-and-seek, or lose-and-seek, that you can play indoors or out

If playing outdoors, always follow the latest health advice of course
