Hungry Little Minds
'Hungry Little Minds' has been designed to make it easier for parents to support their child’s early development at home by chatting, playing and reading with them.
Children soak up every little bit of stimulation you give them. All the little things make a big difference to their development.
The Hungry Little Minds campaign provides lots of ideas that can help boost your child’s
learning. You can slot them into your routine and your children will love them.
• Play ‘I spy’ on the bus with them and you can see their imaginations light up
• Talk to your child about what has happened so far in the day – for example, “We went to the shops this morning, didn’t we? We bought some apples.” And talk about what is going to happen next – “After lunch we’ll do the washing up”
• Look at picture books together. With each new page, give your child time to point out things to you and talk about what they can see Search Hungry Little Minds for simple tips and activities, or to find out what’s available where you live.
Children soak up every little bit of stimulation you give them. All the little things make a big difference to the development of their speech and understanding of words. Everyday moments can be used to boost your child’s learning, as they are interested in a variety of things.
