Chores- It may not be our first idea of fun, but now is a great time to introduce the kids to activities such as washing up, washing and hanging clothes, dusting and sweeping! They will love the responsibility and routine.
Role-playing- Grab some food items, books or stuffed animals and role-play different workplaces! You don't need anything special to do this. If you are creating a supermarket encourage your kids to create signage, decide how to arrange items by food groups and explain why they think different things go together. You can also exchange money to incorporate Mathematics and ask them some questions to encourage improvisation and communication. A fun educational activity.
