Crafts like; knitting, crochet or sewing is a fantastic way for children to improve dexterity skills and how to make their own items and/or fix up clothing!

Pizza time!
Making pizzas is a fantastic way for young children to learn the joy of cooking with you!

You can make pizzas from scratch, YouTuber Barry Lewis has a great recipe for pizza bases using just 2 ingredients!

Or buy premade pizza bases, use bagels, turkish bread - really anything that's bready and has a flat top.
Grab some tomato paste, shredded cheese and whatever toppings you and the young one desire!

Pop into the oven (recommend 180 degrees - fan forced) for about 10 - 15mins until the cheese is melted and the edges are golden brown.

The link below is the 2 Ingredient Pizza Base recipe.

Who's coming to Tea?
A great game that uses dress up and storytelling!

Get all your kids' costumes, props, old clothing of yours, etc.
Lay out everything and set up a table for a tea party.

Now, ask your little one to make up a character using the clothing, costumes and/or props.
Once the kiddo is ready, ask them "Who's coming to Tea?"
And carry on asking questions about their character such as;

"What is [character]'s favourite biscuits?"
"What is [character]'s job?"
"Does [character] have any special powers, if so, what are the powers?"

Join in with your own character and have a cuppa!
