Yoga is a safe and effective way to increase physical activity, especially strength, flexibility and balance so your first task is to set aside 15 minutes to give cosmic yoga a try!
Playdough fun! Whilst poking, pinching, rolling and squishing playdough, children develop the small muscles in their fingers and hands. They gain strength and improve dexterity in their hands and fingers, which is needed for writing and drawing especially.
First of all, have a go at making your very own playdough!
Then, use the song from the powerpoint and sing along whilst rolling, pinching and squeezing the dough to give your hands a good workout. Have fun!
Are you ready to start collecting things?
This activity links to PSHE. When completing this activity, talk about why your child has chosen certain objects and how they make them feel.
Why not collect some sticks, gather some string and make your own raft? Once you have made it, you can experiment with it by trying to answer the questions below.
Now you could collect some leaves from your garden or if you go out for a walk and then use them to make some leaf art. The patterns you make will all depend on which leaves you choose - why not select a few different ones if you can find them and remember to wash your hands afterwards.
Step 1 - collect your leaves
Step 2 - paint one side of the leaf with a colour of your choice
Step 3 - turn over the leaf and print it onto some paper
Extra Challenge- can you create your own 'rainbow leaf' art?
We cannot wait to see what you have created!
