Fun Isolation Activities x

Hello readers,

Times are hard at the moment but we are all in this together. As all we parents know children will easily get bored during isolation and us parents struggle to keep the children entertained. here are my top 5 activities for some family fun.

1. Make a giant snakes and ladders board game. Find any old large pieces of paper or card and make your own giant board game. Get your child to help decorate the snakes and the ladders. This game will help your child improve math skills by recognising numbers and counting skills. If you don’t have coloured counters why not try buttons or spare change. Roll the dice and let the fun begin.😁

2. Make a den. Collect sheets, duvets and pillows and let your children take you on a journey through their imagination. Let your child be as creative as they can by building their own secret den. For the fun to go further let them have a secret picnic inside or even camp the night!

3. Does your child love stories? Why not read them their favourite stories and act it out as a family. This will help your child develop their communication skills whilst having lots of family fun. (My favourite is The Three Little Pigs).

4. Junk modelling. Who doesn’t love this? Find any old / empty boxes and help create a model with your child. Get them to paint or colour the model in. Ask them questions about what they made, why do they like it. Can your child identify shapes. This activity is fantastic for letting your child’s creative thinking take the lead.

5. Let’s have a dance. This is a priceless activity to get the family moving together whilst having fun. Put on some music and let your feet do the work. This is a great way to get active without even realising. Have Fun!

I hope these ideas come useful to you , there are many more to come. Stay Safe. Stay Well.🌈

Food for thought.x

Hello readers 
This is not something I would usually do on my blog but I saw this and needed to share as too many of us in the world put ourselves down and regret things we should not. I really want to share this image with you all.
 We should not regret things we have or have not done, things we should have done and things we shouldn't have done. There is  no point giving ourselves a hard time for these things. We are strong. We are independent. We are good people. Never regret a moment of your lives. Live for today and never look back with regret. Focus on our futures and what we can do.

How to make space goggles with your child.x

Hello readers and Happy Sunday !
I hope this blog finds you well. All children love messy play and love to get creative expressing their own ideas through creativity. You can give your child any resources you can get hold of and they will turn it into something exciting and fun to them. Children will be using their imagination, using their own initiative to create objects for a purpose to them. When doing these sort of activities your child will be developing fine motor skills , developing their imagination (which is a sector to the EYFS) and having lots of fun building on their emotionl skills and resilience. All of these are skills which children will thrive through life with.

Sunday baking with the kids.x

Hello readers ,
Happy Sunday!

Who doesn’t love to bake? Getting the kids to join in to help will limit the time kids spend on screen time and spend some family time instead. Children will love to help and join you in the kitchen you can encourage them to do this as much as you can. Children will be occupied and away from screens when cooking with an adult and cooking reduces stress levels . Cooking activities can improve fine motor skills as kids will carefully hold cooking equiment in their hands using grasps for control. Children can develop their muscles by mixing with spoons and when using icing , squeezing the icing through the icing bags. When baking children are seeing numbers for the ingredients and how much they weigh, for older children who are able to recognise numbers you can ask how many grams / ounces or whatever measurements you wish to use are needed for the receipt. You can encourage your child to explore textures and you can describe the difference between the dry and …
