Children love playing with balls of all shapes and sizes. And with good reason: balls are great for group play, organised sports or just playing by yourself. They are also suitable for a variety of age groups (from babies to children and even adults).
This booklet is here to inspire and connect. Filled with ideas
to give you and your family some fun and
encourage play. It is essential to nurture our health
and wellbeing and it just so happens that play
beautifully facilitates this.
Collage is an arrangement of materials glued to a flat surface. It can provide an opportunity for children to explore different textures and shapes, as well as develop their hand-eye coordination, self expression, and spatial awareness.
Finger painting is a delightfully messy activity which encourages exploration through the senses of touch, sight and manual manipulation.
Children who have already had the opportunity to develop their skills with scissors, glue and brushes will enjoy putting these skills to use in junk sculpture constructions.
Pasta painting is a great art & craft activity that exposes children to different shapes and structures, as well as textures.
Children love stories. You can encourage them to make their own storybooks which will greatly aid their visual and linguistic development.
