These activity ideas are provided for parents to use with their children at home and provide fun, stimulating activities that can be used as described or adapted and built upon as desired. 

The quality learning tasks are mostly self-directed, meaning many children can work through the tasks by themselves. They are generally open-ended and can be interpreted by children of differing ages to suit their own capabilities/strengths. Enjoy and have fun!
