Try painting with different sized toy cars and trucks
Send a hug to someone you are missing
Make a house for little people or an animal from a large milk or detergent bottle
Make a life size picture of yourself and label body parts
Label body parts - Draw round a body on some wallpaper, a large piece of cardboard or whatever you can find! Colour/paint and cut out. See how many body parts your child can name and write them down. It is a good time to introduce new language. Think beyond arm and leg and talk about shoulder, elbow, wrist, thigh, calf, ankle etc. You could even talk about what is on the inside of our bodies such as brain, bones, lungs and heart. You can write all your body words directly onto the picture or use postits or blutack strips of paper onto the relevant part. Can you child remember the body parts a few days later?
Try drawing with a candle (press hard) then paint over
Sequencing letters in a name
Make individual letter cards/bottle tops for each letter of your child's first name. Remember you need to write a capital for the first letter and lower case for the rest. Muddle them up and then practice sequencing the letters in the right order.
Save empty plastic bottles of any shape. Start with 1 and add more as time goes on. You can decorate with watered down paint by swirling different colours around the inside or use stickers etc. Put some sand/soil or dried rice inside the bottle to weigh the base down a little. If you don't have a soft ball make one from a rolled up sock. Take turns to try and knock your skittles over and write down how many points you got.
Set a timer on your phone or cooker for 10 minutes. Start the search for items of your chosen colour (obviously not too big!). When the time is up carefully count how many items you found. Make an arrangement or picture with your items. Talk with your child about the differences in colour ie. light, dark, pale, bright, navy blue, sky blue, baby blue. Try a different colour another day.
