Welcome to the 'Around Town' week!
This week we will be exploring all our favourite spots around town and do fun and exciting activities in each place.
Today we will be starting with looking at our own town- but hang on a second, lets start from the beginning. Where do we live again? Which country do we live in? This would be a great moment to take out a world map/ google maps or globe and point out your country to your kids. Zoom in and show them your city. What's the name of our city? Who do we know that also lives next to us in our city? What are our favourite places to go to in our city? Today we are going to focus on understanding a little more about what our city has to offer!
Choose 2-3 20-30 minute activities from the options below:
Your Town Comes To Life!
Choose 3-5 attractions in your town and build them using furniture and toys in your living room. Build a street that connects these attractions using a long blanket that you can weave in between the sites. Once finished, have races with your kids to see who can reach a certain attraction first, or simply take a nice stroll through your newly built town and admire the sites/ your handiwork.
An Obstacle Course Around Town!
Construct an obstacle course around your outdoor area, that includes imaginary buildings and key places in your town. For example, the supermarket, bakery, town hall, cinema, mall etc.
Have your kids race through the obstacle by foot or with their scooters/ toy cars. You can choose to time them or simply cheer them on as they go!
