Children love being nosy and taking things out and putting them back, so today’s idea is all about exploring cupboards to learn about different kinds of foods
Depending on your kitchen you may prefer to fill up a box for them to explore safely on the floor or table top – or you may have a ground level cupboard they can access more independently
As they find things, or take them out of the box, chat about what kind of food they are, where it comes from and what we can do with it
You never know, they may end up making the dinner “with” you!
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
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
