Have some fun, save your sanity
CREATIVE IDEAS FOR UNDER 5s
THE BASIC IDEA
Embrace silliness. Embrace imperfection. These are fun, creative ideas to engage your wee ones without a lot of kit, stress or the need to ‘achieve’ anything.
OVER TO YOU, WEE ONE
This is where the children take over. Giving them the chance to shape how ideas develop and grow helps them feel safe and valued.
Here we list some of the benefits of the idea, whether it’s building numeracy, self- expression, or letting you finish your cup of tea for a change.
Lots of our ideas can be adapted for children of different ages and abilities, and to whatever space you have.
It’s okay if things don’t go to plan. If you and your wee ones aren’t having fun, ditch it, have a cuddle and try something else another day.
