Fun-day Focus

Make-it Monday

Today we are going to start a new topic about 'Pets'.

I Have A Pet | Animal Song

As it is 'Make-it Monday' we are going to make a paper dog.

Children will make a puppet from a piece of paper or a 3-D dog from a toilet roll tube or rolled piece of paper.

Easy Dog Hand Puppet

If you are making this at home, don't worry if you don't have coloured paper, you can draw details with pencils or pens.

Taste-it Tuesday

Fitting with our topic of 'Pets': cats love to drink milk!

Here is a recipe to make milkshake in minutes, without using a blender. You can mix your ingredients together in a large mixing bowl and then shake in an empty milk carton/ container/ jar that has a lid. You will need:

  • Milk
  • Ice cream
  • Whipped cream, optional
  • Optional: Flavoring (cocoa powder, chocolate powder, etc.), banana, strawberries or biscuit.

 

  • Add the ice cream to your container.
  • Note: mix any powder with milk first.
  • Add milk. Pour your milk into your container on top of the ice cream. You want to have a ratio of about three parts ice cream to one part milk.
  • Mash up your fruit or biscuits in a bowl before adding it to your container. This will make it easier to mix into your milkshake.
  • Mash and stir with a spoon. Before you shake up your milkshake to get a nice frothy texture, take a spoon and give your ingredients a good mix. By mashing and stirring with a spoon you will distribute your ingredients evenly and soften the ice cream.
  • Once you don’t feel many clumps of ice cream, and have a consistent texture, you can stop stirring and mashing.
  • Shake your container for about 15 seconds. If you find your mix is still too solid, you can shake it again.
  • Enjoy!

Wiggle Wednesday

Movement is good fun, helps health and well-being and develops strong muscles and co-ordination.

When children move their whole bodies, they are also supporting development of their wrist and fingers, which increases control of small movements including pencil control.

Have fun!

Just Dance Kids Who Let The Dogs Out

Thrilling Thursday

Today's thrill is called Mystery Pet! 

A pet will be introduced to your child! It may be a family pet, a neighbour's pet or even a toy pet animal.  Talk to your child about the animal. What size is the animal? What shape? Is the animal covered in fur or feathers or has it scales or something else?

Look at the paws or feet- what are they like?

Is this pet friendly or fierce?

What does this pet like to eat?

What can this pet do? Can it walk, slide, run, hop, swim?

 

Funky Friday

Today's activity is; Hide and Listen

This game is about hearing the volume and making the correct associations (loud means close and soft means far).

How to play, hide and listen:

  • Blindfold your child and hide any instrument (such as a tambourine) somewhere in the room where you are playing
  • Tell your child what instrument she must find
  • Your child then searches for the instrument while you play music in the background
  • Explain that when the music gets softer he is going further from the instrument and when it gets louder he is getting closer to it
