The Summer Reading Challenge has now ended in Cheshire West and Chester Libraries but these crafts are still fun to do!

Starting Well Activities @Home

by Libraries@CW&C,


Have you visited the Starting Well Team’s Activities @Home page yet? You will find an array of fun activity ideas to explore with your little ones and keep them busy over the summer -www.startingwell.org.uk/topics/activities-home

You will also find useful video links on how you can support your child with the following activities:

· Playdough – this is a great opportunity for young children to let their imagination run wild! Their creations can be anything they want...cakes, dinosaur footprints or maybe even a wiggly worm at the bottom of the garden https://www.startingwell.org.uk/topics/activities-home/play-dough-toy-library/

· Mark Making - you don’t have to be a fantastic drawer, in fact, the more abstract the better https://www.startingwell.org.uk/topics/activities-home/mark-making-toy-library/

· Sharing a Story - Did you know? Before your little one learns to speak, they enjoy listening to the sound of your voice. This gives your child a feel for the sounds, rhythm and rhymes of language

· Heuristic Play - simple child-led approach to helping your little one learn https://www.startingwell.org.uk/topics/activities-home/heuristic-play-toy-library/

· Block Play - Block play is open ended. Your child’s creations can be anything they want it to be from a rocket blasting off in to space, to a farmyard or fairy garden. The possibilities are endless! There is no right or wrong way to play with blocks https://www.startingwell.org.uk/topics/activities-home/block-play-toy-library/
