First5 Preschool at Home ideas for Exploring & Thinking

Exploring & Thinking is about children making sense of the things, places and people in their world. They do this by interacting with others, playing, investigating, questioning and forming, testing and refining ideas.


A series of tipsheets under the banner Playing at Home have been designed to engage, inspire and support children and their families play and learn together.

Try some of these recipes with the children doing as much as possible. You will be working on a range of skills in these sensory activities. Some of these skills are concentration, sequencing, memory building, turn taking and fine motor development. Lots of pre-maths and science learning is happening with these activities including; pouring, measuring, mixing, heating etc.
