STORYTIME RAP

Ready for a challenge? Download a free beat maker app on your phone. Start a beat playing and, at the same time, read a rhyming story to your wee one. Read aloud to the beat. Hey presto, you’re a rap star! Give it a go and have a laugh.

ACTIVE STORYTELLING

Wee ones don’t always sit still with a book but we can still share stories! Choose a story you know well, gather objects in a bag or box (like teddies and bowls for Goldilocks). Reveal the
objects one by one as you ‘act out’ the story.

SECRET SENSORY DENS

Den-making is a fantastic form of imaginative play. A den can, after all, be anything! After you build your den, secretly add objects with a variety of textures, weights and shapes for your
wee one to discover…Who left them there?!

THE STORY OF YOU

“Once upon a time there was a little girl called…” Tell your child about themselves, focussing on their successes: how they tried and tried until they learned to roll over, how they used to pull themselves up on the side of their cot to build their muscles, etc.
