National Playgroup week in 25th-31st March 2019. It’s a week dedicated to raising awareness about playgroups and then important role parents and carers play in promoting the value of play for young children. It is also an opportunity to celebrate the wonderful work undertaken all over Australia by dedicated parents and carers/ volunteers to keep playgroups running. This week we will be sharing with your ideas to introduce fun and engaging playtime between you and your children.

Activity #2 Story Telling

It’s never too early to introduce your baby to reading and storytelling. It can improve your baby’s cognitive functions and emotional development, and their language development in particular. Any children’s book that is bright and full of colour, are a great way to have your child engage with the activity.

Activity #3  Playing with Blocks
Playing with blocks provides the opportunity for your baby to develop their creative and manipulation skills as well as helping them to understand the concepts of size and weight.
Activity #4  “What’s the time Mr Wolf?”
“What’s the Time Mr Wolf?” is a great game to play outdoors, but if it is raining it can also be played in a spacious indoor area. A game that can be played in large or small groups. It’s a great game for children to improve their Cognitive,  Gross Motor,  Fine Motor skills.
Activity #5 Finger Painting
Ok, so this one is about to get messy, but it is SO MUCH FUN for children.  Finger painting activity encourages exploration through the senses of touch, sight and manual manipulation. Its also can make some incredible art for the grandparents too.
