THIS week's play theme is COLOURS
We've been listening carefully to feedback from everyone around play prompts, we know lots of you are finding them really helpful during lockdown and we want to make it even easier to get involved.
Play is the most wonderful form of learning and I'm a strong believer that there are very few things children can't learn from play, whether that be social skills, phonics, maths, science etc.
From this week coming we will have a play prompt for a whole week. Each day we'll add some fresh ideas around the same theme and we hope you'll add your ideas too.
Our hope is that these ideas will inspire you and not make you feel like they need to be social media perfect - inspirational not aspirational. I love an elaborate set up that might take me half an hour, but equally love to pull something out of the bag in 30 seconds. We'll be sharing all-sorts with you. We'll also be looking at ideas for a range of ages, including how to support learning through play with children of varying ages in the same house!
We want to make sure you know themes in advance - for those of you who would like to do a little planning and gather resources.
Each theme will start on a Monday through to Sunday
