This activity involves using the mouse to mix and match the heads, bodies and feet of various Balamory characters. It's good for helping children to think through different possibilities as they become aware of similarities and differences.

How to extend the fun

You could ask them why a particular combination doesn't work to test their reasoning skills further. Alternatively, you could extend this activity by playing your own mix and match game. Why not cut some photos out of a children's magazine and ask your child to sort out the correct combination of heads, bodies and feet?

How to make a magic moment

There are many funny moments to be had together when playing this game as the different combinations you can make can be hilarious! You could have a go at making a deliberately incorrect combination and give your 'creature' a name.
