Chatterboxes Week 4 Tuesday

Age 2–5

Make a potion together. Talk to your child as you add your ingredients to a pot. Use lots of action words such as ‘stir’ ‘mix’ and ‘tip’ as well as talking about what you are doing using simple language.

Don’t be afraid to keep on repeating these key words. That is how your child will learn and remember them.

Collect the ingredients for your potion from a local park or greenspace.  

Your child could draw pictures or make marks to represent the items you want to find. Help them to draw the tick boxes then tick them off as you go.

Revisit the book or video and talk again about the ingredients the animals put into their potion. You could even cast a spell or make a magic wand.
