Heena, from Mumbai, India, sent in these great letter activities. Let’s take a look at it…

What did you do?

This week we have done the activities for letter S and here they are as follows.

Image 1: S is for slide. Tracing the letter S felt like going on a swirly slide. It may look messy but I’m fine with it as my child learns and explores other things too.

Image 2: Draw the Sun Rays: I drew three Suns with numbers written in them and my son had to look at the number and draw that many sun rays. A fun easy math activity.

Image 3: Hand Painting Sun Rays: again this was an activity with the sun. We made sun rays by dipping the hand in yellow paint and stamping on the circumference of the sun to make it’s rays.

Image 4: Sun Craft: this activity was inspired from Google. I loved this activity as it was simple and I like keeping things simple. We used a paper plate and painted it yellow. We cut strips of yellow paper and folded it to make the rays and pasted at the back of the paper plate.

I like doing activities which are simple so that it’s not too frustrating for the child to understand and also that they learn and have fun at the same time.

Do you have any other projects planned?

My next work is doing activities with the letter T.

Tell the Housebound With Kids community a bit about yourself…

My name is Heena and I’m from Mumbai, India. I have a son who is 3 years old and I like to do activities with him to keep him engaged during the day.

Do you have any tips for other parents?

Being housebound with kids can be difficult but it can be fun and easy when we know our children well.

What are your family’s favourite board game(s)/card game(s)?

We like playing Go Fish and Monopoly.

What are your children’s favourite books?

My son likes to read books on animals.

What toys would you recommend to other parents?

I would recommend toys which are open ended as it helps in building lots of imagination and creativity in children.
