Indoor Active

Outdoor Active

Japan is known for making lots of different types of cars. So since the kids don’t drive cars yet (!) go for a bike/scooter ride.

Choose 2-3 20-30 minute activities from the selection below:

Colour the Flag

Draw and colour the flag of Japan.

Write the country name in English (and your kid's second language if relevant). 

Switch up the material each day - paper, cardboard - as well as the size.

DIY Indoor Volcano

Japan has over 100 active volcanoes, more than almost any other country and accounts alone for about 10 % of all active volcanoes in the world. Here is an easy clip on how to make one at home that the kids will love! www.youtube.com/watch?v=HgqebizvwNk
