Fun activities for pre-school kids to keep them entertained whilst building key early years skills
How to Create Little Happy Learners presents an inspiring selection of learning and craft activities designed to promote a love of learning.
Written by Sophie David, a former early years teacher and adviser who is now a stay-at-home mum with 3 children under 5, she is now channelling her knowledge and creativity to show-case the craft ideas she was using to keep her children entertained. Here, she offers over 60 fun-packed activities for children, all highlighting different skills (fine motor, phonics, maths, creativity, communication and independence). Split into topics ranging from animals to transport, Sophie not only offers crafting activities that involve children and can be used time and time again utilising everyday items, she also adapts each activity for different age groups (from 0-5 years) so you can reuse the book as your child grows.
Some activities include:
- Searching for animal fossils (phonics and creativity)
- Bug Count (problem solving and maths)
- Emotion stones (communication)
- Creating sensory bags (baby play and motor skills)
This book offers a bank of great activities to not only inspire a love of learning in your children but to make that journey a fun, craft filled one.
