Challenge Poverty through Early Learning
October 8, 2020Free
With the current restrictions, we know it can be hard to access play opportunities. That’s why we would love to hear from you if you would like to come and join one of our online playgroup!
Now here is today’s challenge to promote learning through play: create your own toys!
– Homemade bubbles: mix together 18 fl oz water, 2 fl oz washing up liquid, 4 teaspoons sugar
– Homemade play dough (uncooked): you’ll need 1 ¼ cups flour, ½ cup salt, ½ cup water – combine the flour and salt and slowly mix in the water, work the mixture into a smooth dough with your fingers.
– Homemade musical instruments:
o Drums: upside down saucepan and wooden spoon
o Shakers: rice in plastic bottle
o Comb tunes: run finger along the teeth of a comb
– Other activities ideas: imitate animals in the zoo, play hide and seek, make an obstacle course in your living room or garden, play bowling with empty plastic bottles
