Try painting with a feather or other materials. Attach sponge, leaves, bubble wrap, wool (or whatever you can find), to the end of a peg or stick. What different marks can you make?

Letters and Sounds: Write down the sounds your child has been learning on post it notes (or pieces of paper) and put them around your home. (s a t i p n m d c k e). Can they find all the post its, saying the sounds as they find and return them. You could use a timer to make it a race to find them all. They may need a clue, by you doing the action or naming something beginning with the sound, in order to remember the sounds represented by each grapheme.

Sequencing letters in 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 from left to right.

Vet Role Play -

Collect some soft toy animals, pretend medicine pots and maybe a t-towel or scarf as a bandage. Play with your child taking turns to be the vet and the customer. Introduce language and ask questions about what happened, what's wrong etc. Model writing notes or pretending to answer the phone to make an appointment.

Try some nature art like Andy Goldsworthy
