This week in our Tot School A to Z series H is for house theme! We’ve gathered ideas from some amazing bloggers to do the planning for you and provided a week of play and learning activities.
These activities will provide a variety of literacy, pretend play, sensory exploration, motor and cognitive skill development.
The play activities are more child-directed and take less set up. The learning activities could be best for the preschool age and require a little more direction.
