Education is no longer merely about being able to read, write and count. Thankfully, schools today have a curriculum that provides a far more rounded approach. Children are naturally creative and inquisitive, and as parents and carers we can help nurture this in our pre-schoolers in lots of fun, exciting and relevant ways.
How CBeebies can help
Have a look at the Show Me Show Me web pages. You and your child are invited to travel to an amazing playroom where presenters Chris and Pui explore the magic of the every day. It’s a special place for stories and adventures. You can click on different parts of the playroom and join in with some of the creative features from the TV programme, e.g. in the video clips you can look up into the sky and go on dream-like journeys where the only limit is your imagination!
How to make a magic moment
Why not help your child put on a show to entertain their family?
Choose a story they know well, such as a fairy tale, and use toys or puppets to act out what happens. A large cardboard box can be converted into an impromptu stage and decorated with paint and pieces of material for the stage curtain.
Perhaps your child can help make posters with you to advertise the show and even rustle up some interval biscuits or other tasty treats to win over the audience!
