What is 50 Things To Do Before You're Five?
50 Things App is a collection of 50 fun activities you can try with the children in your care. All activities listed on the app are either free or at low cost
Each and every one of these activities will uniquely challenge children to develop their confidence, build their communication and language skills and encourage learning. The activities have been written by education experts and early years practitioners to meet pre-school literacy priorities and help early years settings and schools respond to Ofsted's challenge to improve low literacy levels in children
50 Things aims to provide inspiration for parents, carers and practitioners to connect and bond with children through a range of activities. All suggestions included are low-cost or no-cost experiences that include indoor, outdoor, seasonal, home-based activities that are not only fun but will get children of to a flying start with their learning and language development. The app will help us understand the significant impact of playtime on children's development
