Activities

Playing

Play with a toy farm. What kind of animals are on the farm? How many are there? Who looks after them? What do we get from each animal?


Drawing and colouring

Put your feet on a piece of paper and draw round them with a crayon or a felt tip pen. Decorate your foot pictures by colouring, painting or maybe with some squares of coloured paper.


Sorting

Buy some fresh fruit at the greengrocer or supermarket. See how many ways you can sort them - by colour, by size, by shape, etc. When you have finished sorting them, cut them up and make a fruit salad together for tea!


Go for a walk

Go for a walk in the park or the countryside and see which wild flowers you can find. Are they big or small? What colours are they? Do they grow on the ground or on a bush or tree? What are they called? (If you don't know, see if you can find out when you get home). When you get back from your walk, make a picture of your favourite flower using scraps of fabric or coloured paper.
