Purposeful play

Our little ones are being given a helping hand to make the most of their play time after school and weekends 
Mama, keen to reinforce the message of constructive play, called a brainstorming meeting with teachers and aunties when everyone was able to put forward their ideas.
It was also a chance to emphasise  the importance of toilet training as well as taking a leaf from the book of our highly trained teachers who do such a wonderful job with the littlies.
At weekends, the activities are well spread and include throwing, kicking and catching mini ball games, filling and emptying activities with sand or water, singing and dancing, bicycle riding, short races, sorting and grouping, jigsaw puzzles,colouring  and other games.
With the newly-energised programme starting at the weekend the kids had great fun improving  their coordination and other skills into the bargain.
Their older brothers and sisters couldn't stay away and had fun organising and playing a game of rounders!
