OK a bit messy, but lots of fun! Make your own edible finger paint for the kids. Its cheap to make and safe to use and if theres any left over, store it in the fridge or freezer to use for another day.
Reading to your child every day is a wonderful way to spend some time with them and support them in their learning. Snuggling up with your child and reading them stories helps them to develop a positive attitude towards books.
Kids will have fun making their own garden fairies, especially over summer when plants are in full bloom. Teach them the names of the flowers that you use, discuss the different shades of colour and how plants grow.
