Draw a picture of ourselves. Look into a mirror and draw a picture. You may wish to label this with the sounds that each facial feature begins with e.g. M for mouth.




Make a repeated pattern using different household objects or any toy/ construction. A repeating pattern is one that carries on the same so if you were making a repeating pattern using household items you may place cutlery in a line e.g fork, knife, spoon, fork, knife, spoon, fork, knife, spoon and on…

Use cardboard boxes/ milk cartons/ foil to make different items such as castles/ houses etc.  You could then use these to make up a story.
