Hopefully I can keep this page updated and give you some tips and activities to help you occupy your child in the holiday's for little cost and show you how your child will develope from these activities.
Roadway and maps
Encourage your child to hold two pens in one hand between their fingers, on a large roll of old wallpaper, get them to draw a track. They can add bricks to build a town, silver foil makes a good duck pond. Use people and cars. They make a city or the country.
Physical- using fine manipulative movements to move a pencil or crayon to draw the track. Pushing a car or train uses the tripod grip, which aids writing.
Intelectual - Thinking of a story and the characters and using their imagination, connecting this to where they have been themselves in a car or train.
Language - Learning the names of characters, new words and telling a story.
Emotional - Acting out how their own feels, expressing themselves through their play.
Social - Interacting with you and their families - QUALITY TIME....
This activity has so many possibilities it is endless, all from a roll of wall paper!!!!
