  • Stuck inside? Too hot? Too rainy? Balloon tennis is a cheap and easy way to burn off some
    energy inside.
    Easy to set up, all you need is some balloons and something to knock them back and forth.
    Fly swatters, paper plates, a piece of cardboard or just use your hands.
    If you want to take it one step further you can tie a piece of string between two chairs to
    use as a net. (you can always use this later for a game of limbo!)
    Keep score and use this to work on number recognition or simply play for fun! Enjoy!

  • I Spy is a great game to play as a family and an excellent way to develop many different
    skills. Observation skills, language skills, understanding and many more.
    There are a number of ways to play this game.
    Here are some examples:
    1. The classic version of I spy, naming the first letter of the object. (it is something
    beginning with ‘p’ – pear)
    2. Using descriptive language to describe an object. (it is something small, it is green and it
    grows on trees and plants – leaf)
    3. Using shapes and colour to describe (it is a small rectangle and it is black with white
    spots – domino)
    4. If you’re out on a walk, can you spot a given object (who can see a red car first)
    I’m sure you’ll be able to find many more ways to play, but these give you somewhere to
