12 play ideas and activities for little ones preparing to start school for the first time
Looking for something productive to start preparing your toddler for starting school in September?
With such a big step, it’s good to have kids understanding what it’s going to be like for them at school, but in a super fun way! Our fridge-worthy playCALENDARS are sure to get them geared up for day one.
Each idea uses items from around the house or can be located in a pound shop. And to make your life even more simple, there is a list of resources on the reverse of the calendar! Woohoo!
Let them open one of the 12 windows to reveal a colourful surprise play idea for starting school!
The most effective way to teach a new skill or subject to a child is through lots of playful experiences, and these calendars will do just that. Providing active opportunities for your child to begin to understand about school will make this new milestone in their life that much easier.
This can also be a handy resource for parents to open conversations about going to big school for kids aged 3+ and fantastic for siblings of different ages too!
This bright A3 calendar has 12 perforated windows to open and includes a resource list on the reverse with space for your child to sign their name and take ownership of their calendar. Printed in Bristol, UK on FSC certified cardboard.
We also have other play calendars in this range to support colours, weather and shape. Check out our playPROMPTS too for play that never ends!
