OTHER THINGS TO DO AT HOME

 

  • Write little notes to each other. Encourage your child to draw, write or make marks themselves.
  • Make a postbox in your house and everyone can pass messages or pictures to each other - take it in turns to be the post person and deliver the mail!
  • Play any board games you have. 
  • Cook or bake together (even if it is as simple as making a sandwich together)
  • Make a treasure basket of things found in the garden.
  • Play phonics games. (Touch something beginning with the ssssss sound... I spy something beginning with ffff... Make a collection of things rhyming with cat...)
  • Interview someone in your family and find out things you didn't know about them.
  • Set up a points chart for things like keeping your bedroom tidy and doing household chores - at the end of each week, whoever has the most points is crowned "House Mega-Star".
  • Make play-doh (flour, a little salt and enough water to make a dough). What will make the best dough? More flour? More salt? Less water? Experiment to find the best play-doh recipe.
  • Household Olympics - every day run a different event (how about who can run up the stairs fastest? Or balance on one leg for the longest? Or do the most star jumps during the Eastenders opening music?)
  • Put on a concert (plan who will sing or perform what, find backing tracks on You Tube with adult help, rehearse, work out what you will wear, make a leaflet about it, make a poster to tell people in the house when it will happen)
