It’s summer holidays, it’s raining (well has been) so for children how about a story activity?
For younger ones, cut out some pictures from a magazine (10 -15 pictures) Can be anything from food, animals, weather related items etc or for older children cut out some random words – Maybe 10-20. Put them in a bag and get your child to pick out around 5 of them. They then need to make up a story including those words or pictures. Enjoy and I’d love to hear how it goes!
And now for the book review….
The Bear and the Piano by David Litchfield
What a lovely story! I think anywhere between 3 – 6 will like this book. It’s about a bear who is very good at the piano. So good that he leaves his home and becomes a huge star. He misses his friends at home but worries that they’ll be cross that he hasn’t been in touch for a while. Beautiful pictures and beautifully written. Really touching and very enjoyable.
