Water painting

 

Don’t have any paints – no problem!

Grab a bucket or any container and fill with water. Head out to the garden and you can use a paintbrush dipped in the water to ‘paint’ on a wall or hard floor. The best bit is after a few minutes it just disappears.

 

What shapes can you make?

Can you write the first letter of your name?

A children’s classic that every child should enjoy! Another great rhyming story with beautiful illustrations - we like to use different voices for each dog when we read it.

If you don’t have a copy at home then follow the link to Book Trust and read along

Make an alphabet letter sound bag/box/tub...or pile on the floor

 

For example, A bag could include: Apple, Apron, Aeroplane, Ant...B bag could include: Banana, Balloon, Butterfly, Bus.....these could be pictures you and the children have drawn,

You could extend this by adding a colour if your little one can say the word, for example, blue bus or red balloon.  Keep adding an extra word to challenge them when they are able move forward...let’s get them chatting away!

Once completed please send photo via EExAT to your keyworker- we would love to see them!
