Have some fun, save your sanity


CREATIVE IDEAS FOR UNDER 5s

THE BASIC IDEA

Go for a walk and draw a rough map of where you went.
Chat it through as you draw “We passed the school, then where did we go?

OVER TO YOU, WEE ONE

Follow their instructions and/or let them take over the drawing as you chat
Top tip: It’s not about being accurate, it’s about sharing the experience

CHEEKY BONUSES

  • Literacy skills
  • Vocabulary
  • Spatial awareness
  • Gives you some fresh air and exercise

VARIATIONS

  • Draw a map as you share a story “what did they pass next on the bear hunt?”
  • Make a treasure map together and let your wee one lead you round the house on an adventure

AND REMEMBER…

Start the map like it’s the most fascinating thing to YOU and wee ones are more likely to want to join in. It doesn’t matter if it’s a scribbly mess, it’s all communication.mething else another day.
