Day 1 of the half term, pulling your hair out yet?
As a childminder I like to offer the children lots of different activities and opportunities, and ensure we celebrate all country and religious holidays.
To keep it fresh I use http://www.ichild.co.uk/ which is a free site, that’s continually updated, and full of fantastic ideas to do, see or make.
It is split into age ranges 0-12 mths, 1-3, 3-5, 5-7 and 7-11
We have to provide opportunities for 6 areas of learning and development, so you will see there are activities listed under:):-
Knowledge and Understanding of the World
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Communication, Language and Literacy
Problem-Solving, Reasoning and Numeracy
If you use a childminder it might be interested to have a look around, but as a parent it will also give you templates for hats, door-hangers and finger puppets, ideas for games to play and example rewards charts etc., amongst other things - as you can see from the list below!
FREE Fun Activities: 11 Plus | Alphabet | Birthday Parties | Bookmarks | Children's Savings | Colouring In Pictures | Crafts | Daily Routines | Dairy Free | Dinosaurs | Drawing Templates | Easter | English | Flash Cards | French | Goal Setting | I Can Learn | Maths | Mother's Day | Nursery Rhymes | Outdoor Fun | Pancake Day/Lent | Paper Chains | Phonics | Pirate | Puppets | Red Nose Day | Reward Charts | Role Play | Royal Wedding | Space | Spanish | St. David's Day | St. George's Day | St. Patrick's Day | Travel | Waybuloo | Winter | MORE
I hope this gives you some help over the half term holidays J
Thanks for reading.
