Simple, fun activities for kids, from newborn to five years old
Children take everything in. They love it when you chat, play and read with them, even when they’re too young to understand everything.
You can turn almost anything into a game. And every little thing you do together will help set them up nicely for the day they start school.
Activities and ideas
You and your children can do short videos and simple, fun activities together.
We have broken down the activities by age, but no one knows your child better than you do. So you could pick and choose the ideas that feel right for you, adapt our suggestions or even come up with your own. And you can use whatever language you feel most comfortable with.
