Home Resources

We know this is a challenging time for many of our families, and we’d like to do all we can to support you. We will be sharing ideas and resources on this page each day, which you can use at home with your children. These activities are meant to engage and inspire you and your children, not to make extra work for you. Therefore, please pick and choose only those activities that you feel are most suitable for your family.

Can we ask a favour? While we are doing our best to support you, we’d really appreciate your support for Pippins. Pippins Preschool is a member of Amazon Smile and Easyfundraising. This means that any time you make a purchase on Amazon or one of hundreds of Easyfundraising online retailers, you could help raise money for Pippins. Please consider signing up for these programs. With more people shopping online than ever before, now is the perfect time. Click on the links above to join. Then, each time you shop online, start from the Amazon Smile or Easyfundraising page, so that anything you buy will earn a commission for Pippins.

Stay safe and happy playtime!

This puppet making activity from Small Talk by the National Literacy Trust combines reading, playing, and a craft project.

You will need:
A book your child likes
Paper and crayons
Child-safe scissors

Now time to make your puppets:

Step 1: Ask your child to choose a character or object they like from the book.

Step 2: Get them to draw a picture of it, or find a picture online that you can print and colour. Then help your child cut it out and stick it to the lollipop stick (or whatever you’re using as the stick for your puppet).

Step 3: Read the book aloud and encourage your child to use the puppet when the character or object appears.
