Stimulate your child’s interest

Watch suitable educational TV programs with your children (e.g. David Attenborough documentaries). Perhaps ask your children to take turns to identify a current news story that they would like the family to discuss over dinner. Or ask each child to research a famous person they are interested in or who share their birthday, and invite them to share what they have learned with the family.

Activities:

Camp out overnight in the backyard

Set up the tent in the backyard, unroll the sleeping bags and spend the night under the stars.

Tips:

Share interesting facts about where you are working or living

Get to know more about where you are working or living, and share this information with your children. History, geography, politics, or many other aspects of a location can be investigated – maybe ask your child what they would like you to find out!
