Good Morning, today we are thinking all about or Fine Motor Skills, this means using a pencil, pen or scissors carefully. Start by downloading this pack ( Download Houses and Homes Fine Motor Skills Pack ). Within this pack are a huge range of activities and games.

Choose the activity that interest you most and enjoy. We don’t recommend trying to do all of these today! Remember the key today is practising careful drawing, cutting and tool use. Choose a few you will really enjoy and take your time.




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.


  Mindful challenges:

Try these different challenges to help you focus on the here and now. How do they make you feel? Try to notice if you feel calmer or relaxed.
