It’s those rare few months of the year in England when the sun shines and it’s light until late so let’s make the most of it!
- Buy a kiddy pool. This can be great fun for all the family and an affordable way to stay cool in the sun.
- Buy, borrow, or rent a Slip N Slide. They're yellow things you spread on the lawn and spray with the hose. It's a great way to entertain your children and friends. Fire up the hose and go sliding. Don't forget to take pictures!
Don’t forget to consider the teaching opportunities in these fun activities.
You can work on requesting by having your child ask for pool toys or to turn on the hose. You can work on talking about your environment by making statements as you play - “He is sliding fast” or “The water is cold!” - and taking turns on the slip and slide or with pool toys.
