Other activity ideas

There are many daily activities that you could encourage your child to take part in:


  • Getting dressed - Encourage your child to put on and take off their own clothes independently. Support children to recognise which foot their shoes go on as well as supporting them in using buttons and laces
  • Physical activity – Cosmic kids yoga, dancing, obstacle course etc.
  • Preparing / making lunch and dinner
  • Baking / cooking
  • Writing letters to family members/friends/us (these could be sent via a photo)
  • If you are lucky to have a garden, you could do some planting, gardening, observing wildlife, drawing pictures of what can be seen, making dens, go on a bug hunt, nature art (create pictures using things found outside), potion making (create 'magic' potions using leaves, grass, daisies etc. and water) etc.
  • Make an obstacle course - this could be done inside with furniture and different activity points or outside using larger equipment.
  • Creative – depending what you have at home, you could do junk modelling, drawings, painting etc.
  • Playing games – play games that involve turn taking and following rules such as board games
  • Make playdough (various simple recipes can be found online.) Corn flour and water is another fun (and messy!) activity.
  • Scavenger hunts are good fun and they can be tailored around anything you like e.g. a colour hunt, a nature hunt, an alphabet hunt or number hunt etc.
  • Every day and self-help tasks e.g. dressing selves, matching pairs of socks when doing the laundry, laying the table for meals, sorting and tidying toys etc.
  • Make a happy face chart to promote positive behaviour – discuss together what makes you happy and keeps them safe e.g. being kind, picking toys up from the floor, walking inside.
  • Have a look at ‘The Imagination Tree’ for lots of creative activities:
