You will need: Whatever you have lying around at home; there is no rules here apart from the need to use your imagination.

Demonstrate to your child how they can, stroke, open, close or even smell the various objects on the discovery wall. Then just leave them to it!

#2. A fish tank for learning about water

You will need:

  • A large container for water.
  • Pebbles or coloured beads.
  • Toys for use as your sea creatures.
  • Additional options: a plastic spade, drinking straws, pieces of polystyrene, pieces of tree bark, coins.

How to play:
Demonstrate to your child how they can put their hands under the water water and grab a hold of the various items. Let them have a go at moving the items from the aquarium to another container. Show them how they can throw the polystyrene pieces and coins into the water. It will be entertaining for them to see how some things sink while others float on the surface. Show them that if they blow through a straw, they can see bubbles appear on the surface of the water.
