Good Morning, today we are finishing off our week on homes and houses. Download this pack ( Download Houses and Homes Activity Pack ) it is filled with house and home based activities, as with yesterday choose some that interest you, you do not have to complete them all!

Other ideas;

Share your favourite book that is about a home or includes one.
Build a home at home (think big: cardboard, pillows, blankets).
Continue the construction activities from earlier in the week.




With anxiety over health, social distancing and changes in routine, this is a difficult time for children and adults. Here are some suggestions to help your wellbeing and mental health. This week, the activities focus on mindfulness.





Mindfulness is being aware of what is going on inside and outside ourselves, moment by moment. We can practise mindfulness through meditation, colouring, poses, being in nature and much more. Here are some fun activities to get you going. Look out for mindfulness colouring, crafts, breathing and yoga activities here over the next few days.

  Mindfulness doodling:

Do you like doodling? It’s fun to do and, guess what, it’s really good for you! Doodling is just drawing your own patterns in anyway you like, you don’t even need to be thinking while you doodle! Doodles can be really beautiful. They also help you to be calm and happy!

Ask an adult or older sibling to go through this PowerPoint with you and then get doodling! You can create tiny doodles or really bigs ones, inside on paper, your iPad or even on the bath using special bath crayons if you have them. (Do not use ordinary crayons on your bath please!) You could also doodle outside with chalk!
