Another not so great day – talking about the weather yet again!
This activity is all about playing shops. Your wee one may be a little young for the money side but maybe work out how far they can count, no further than 10 perhaps and just have that many pennies. For us, it is really practising the actual counting, they may not yet understand what the number really represents, but that comes in the fullness of time!
Again, if you don’t have time or inclination to set up a shop, that said, it only need be a box of apples, a box of bananas, they will still love it. (In fact you will find it will be the role play they will delight in and having YOU there to play with.) Maybe go the baking or cooking route and then you have something to eat afterwards which you can discuss! How much would it cost, what ingredients did you use, is it very healthy? You get the idea, I don’t need to teach granny to suck eggs! (I actually successfully made empire biscuits for the first time! Try those. Children love making pastry. Give them their own piece to roll out and play with, just a thought, or . . . . make a really big one!)
So whatever you do today, have a good one
Best wishes to you all.
