Today we are going to explore painting.
Don't worry if you don't have paint at home- you can make your own paint using things from the kitchen.
To make home-made paint, you could:
Remember to let hot water cool down before letting children paint with it.
If you don't have paintbrushes, you could use household objects, such as cotton buds, the edge of a spoon or even your fingers to paint.
You could paint a picture or pattern or simply explore colours and let children fill the space.
Ask your child to paint a face shape with eyes, nose, mouth.
For children with confident paintbrush/ pencil skills, parents could write the child's name in large letters and then the child can paint over the writing. Have fun!
This is a practical task where children prepare their own snack before eating it. This provides an opportunity to improve their physical skills and develop independence as well as increase confidence in their ability.
Today children will be making their own sandwich, spreading butter or jam onto a piece of bread and folding it in half before eating it.
Tip: When spreading jam or butter, put the correct amount in small blobs onto the bread ready for children to spread out.
Moving to music is lots of fun and great for developing physical skills and strength. It also helps boost confidence and us to feel good, so lets all dance and move together.
Parents/carers you will need to prepare a box with a few different household objects which all have different sounds, e.g. a bell, a rattle, box of rice and so on.
Watch this video with your child and you can do the activity in the same way.
The thrill for the children will be the box you have prepared and they won't know what's in it!
