D is for Dance #AtoZChallenge

Letter “D” is for Dance, something I love to do! Dancing is a good way to keep fit, relieve stress and have fun. I like it because it’s exercise that doesn’t feel like work-it feels like a party! I often put on some feel good music and have a boogie around my kitchen and it always makes me feel great.

During the lockdown, lots of children’s entertainers, DJs and clubs are offering online parties, discos and raves and there are also plenty of dance schools running online classes. So, if you’ve always wanted to have a go at dance, now is a good time to start!

B is for Building #AtoZChallenge

Letter “B” is for Building. Construction play is a great way for children to learn about the properties of materials and the basic principles of engineering. Building things helps improve fine and large motor skills, hand-eye co-ordination and spatial awareness, as well as encouraging children to use their imagination. Below are some ideas for things you can build together using regular household items.

A is for Agenda of Activities #AtoZChallenge

Letter “A” is for Agenda of Activities. I’ve seen a lot of social media posts recently with suggested timetables to follow while the schools are closed. Having a fixed schedule can be helpful if you like structure, but I personally find them difficult to put into practice. We are following a very basic routine where the only “fixed” events are mealtimes and bedtimes and we have lists of activities to use as inspiration the rest of the time.

The Sunday Post: Staying Positive

This has been my first week of lockdown in the UK, and it hasn’t been all that bad. I’m missing family, but we’ve been able to have some good video chats and I’m messaging people more than ever. I’m trying not to dwell too much on the bad news in the media and focus on the little things that bring me joy.
