There is a heap of information and activities for young children to be found on the KDL website. The PLAY-GROW-READ! section of the KDL website can be found under the “Parents & Kids” tab. There you will find a goldmine of “Simple Crafts and Activities for Early Literacy Skills.”
This list of crafts and activities will help your child get ready to read by talking, writing, reading, playing and singing. For instance, make a simple mailbox and have your child “write” notes to other family members. Similarly, use grocery store ads to cut out pictures and create your child’s favorite menu. This is a great place to find inspiration for educational and fun activities.
