Disclaimer: For your child's health and safety, it is important to supervise them during these activities, and only use age-appropriate equipment and materials. We cannot be held responsible for your child's welfare when they are outside of our care.
Visit playgrounds - swings, slides, climbing and jumping help to improve your child's balance and coordination.
Dance - there are many nursery rhymes and songs with actions that your child can copy. For example, the wheels on the bus and Incy Wincy Spider.
Colouring and painting - using crayons is good way for your child to practice their pencil grip, which will be a useful skill for when they learn to write.
Threading - Ask your child to thread beads or dry pasta on to a string or shoelace, or how about threading a nut on to a screw?
Get crafty - Using child scissors to cut along a line on paper and card, and use glue for sticking.
Play with sand - As well as developing fine motor skills, playing with sand is sensory and promotes creativity and imagination.
