Just for fun

Fun and meaningful non-screen activities:

 

  • Thank a community hero. Think of someone that helps you in some way and write a short letter to thank them.
  • Get building! You could build a Lego model, a tower of playing cards or something else!
  • Can you create your own secret code? You could use letters, numbers, pictures or something else! Can you get someone else to try and crack it?
  • Start a nature diary. Look out of the window each day and keep note of what you see. Birds, flowers, changes in the weather, what else?
  • Hold a photo session. Use a camera or a mobile phone to take some snaps. What will you photograph? Your pets or toys perhaps?
  • Build a reading den. Find somewhere cosy, snuggle up and read your favourite book!
  • Design and make a homemade board game and play it with your family.
  • Keep moving! Make up a dance routine to your favourite song.
  • Write a song or rap about your favourite subject.
  • Get sketching! Find a photograph or picture of a person, place or object and sketch it.
  • Draw a view. Look out of your window and draw what you see.

Charades:

 

Play this fun game with your family and see who is the best at acting.

How to play: 

Divide into teams to make it more competitive, or just take turns. One person picks a word or phrase to act out and the other players guess what they are acting.

As you can't speak, there are actions to mime that will give some clues. If the word or phrase is a book, put your hands together and unfold them like opening a book. To indicate a person, stand up with your hands on your hips. For a song, pretend to sing. For a movie, turn you hand in front of your face like operating an old-fashioned camera. For a TV show, draw a rectangle with your fingers. If it's a phrase hold up fingers to show the number of words. Put your finger and thumb close together to indicate a small word like "a" or "the;" move them far apart for a very long word. Touch you ear to indicate the word sounds like another, easier-to-act-out word.

 

The link below has lots of ideas to help you get started and think of what you could act out for your family to guess.
