Fun activities to do at home with your child/ren! 

RICE PLAY

Take a tray or a bowl. Fill it with rice and provide your child with a range of resources for them to explore : spoons, bowls, cups, balls, toys - anything you can think of really. While exploring you can use language related to capacity (example- the blue bowl is full and the orange is half full).
