Hungry Little Minds is a campaign from the Department for Education. It encourages parents and carers to adopt positive activities and behaviours to boost children’s communication, language and literacy development.
Hungry Little Minds provides lots of simple tips and activities that you can slot into your routine and that children love:
- Kids will make a game out of almost anything. When you play with them you can see their imaginations light up. Whether it’s I spy while on the bus, peek-a-boo at bath-time or even a game of teddy bears’ picnic at tea-time.
- Kids love to talk about all sorts of things. It all goes in, even when they’re too young to say much back. So just go with what they are interested in.
- Kids love it when you read with them. It all goes in. Every single word. From a book, a magazine, even a shopping list.
