A memory action game called Donkey

Play with a few people in your family: at least two.  The first person does an action, the second person copies and add another action, the next person does the two actions and adds a third, the next person does all three and adds a fourth. If you make a mistake in either the order or the actions or both (depending on level) you get a letter D Next time O until Donkey is formed. The first person to have Donkey is the looser.  Carry on till one person is left as the winner.

Easy version the first person to make a mistake is the Donkey and can start a new series of actions.

I can see a rainbow! 🌈

Good morning everyone!

This week the art challenge is all about rainbows. There are lots of rainbows around reminding us to stay safe.

Follow the link below if you would like to try growing you very own.

Alternatively, you may wish to create a collage rainbow. If you don’t have access to coloured paper or paint, then why not use recycled material like empty cereal boxes, crisp packets, magazines, bottle tops… whatever you have!

There is colour all around us, brightening up our day and making us smile.

Take care and stay safe.

Fine Motor Skills Activities for little fingers

Good morning

I hope that you are all well and staying safe.

This weeks PE activity can be done indoors and will help with improving fine motor skills.

Fine Motor skill is the co-ordination of small muscles, in movements – usually involving the synchronisation of hands and fingers- with the eyes.

With the improvement of these skills, a child is  able to improve life skills such as  feeding oneself, dressing, coping with buttons, zippers, holding a pencil and many other day to day activities.

To practise some activities please check out the link below.

Have Fun.

‘Hydro’ at home.

This is going to be more of a sensory session.

In the form of a bath or shower with some essential oils or just soaps/ foams/gels/salts your child enjoys the smell of. You could provide a choice of two or three. Roughly citrusy smells are uplifting and activation where lavender chamomile  and baby sleep time washes relax. But feel free to use what suits your moment. In corporate a bit of gentle stretching afterwards of the areas your physiotherapist has recommended.
If your child has no physiotherapist a scented bath can still be a great way to get some chill time in the day or before bedtime.

Kid’s HIIT Workout

Hi Everyone ,

I hope you are all well and managing to fit in some exercise into your daily routine.

Please have a look at the following Youtube page and have some fun taking part:https://youtu.be/lc1Ag9m7XQo

KID’S HIIT WORKOUT                                                                                                  is a 30-minute long exercise YOUTUBE video.

HIIT, or high-intensity interval training, is a workout that combines intense bursts of exercise and short, active recovery periods. Think marching, jumping jacks and squats.

No equipment needed, suitable for the whole family.

Just put on a pair of trainers and press play.

Take care and stay safe

Massages

Hi , can I suggest to look up some hand massages on YouTube there are short clips that cover a simple massage, just take your time gently opening up the palms of the hands. It can be a gentle moment of communication through touch.

I recommend a hand bath first depending on your goal use a mild soap. A citrus scent wakes up and vitalises  or for a relaxing massage; just before bedtime for example use a baby-sleep bath or a lavender/ camomile or stay neutral with no scents.

This is the same for any oils and or lotion scents.
