Activity 1 - Smoothie making
Today we are exploring fruit! And although this is a smoothie making activity I would really like you to focus on exploring the ingredients with your senses. What do they smell like? What do the feel like? Do they have a peel? What happens if you mix one ingredient with another? Do you like the way they taste? Can you help chop the fruit up?
Maybe you have just created the most delicious smoothie ever and will have it for breakfast every day! Who knows?
Activity 2 – My Independence: Life skills
Good morning! Today we are going to be thinking about what we will be wearing today. Look outside at the weather (or maybe your weather chart) and think about the best clothes for today.
Now you know what the weather is like perhaps you can choose your clothes with help. Ask your grown up to help you put your clothes on.
Sing our special getting dressed song!
Can you choose clothes for your grown up or teddy and then help them get dressed?
Twinkl activity sheet. Dressing for the seasons activity. Can you cut out the clothes for your teddy and put them in the right place?
Don’t forget to ask for help when you need it!

Activity 3 – My Thinking and problem solving – Shape
Good morning! Today we are going to sort shapes.
In your pack, you will find shape labels, cut them out ready for your child.
Get your child to trace around the letters, and then place them on the floor with some space in between them.
Now challenge your child to find items around the house that could go under each shape.
I would love to see what you find so please take photos!
