Fun Things To Do At Home
This page is great for toddlers and pre-schoolers who are just learning to talk or expanding their vocabularies. Singing songs and playing routine games (such as 'round and round the garden') with your child is a fun way to encourage language development. This page contains not just the words and lyrics for songs, but also has free printable colouring pages, craft ideas, puppets, felt board characters and other activity sheets to go with the songs, rhymes and stories!
