Home Learning

You will need

  • plastic cups
  • string / ropes
  • paint for decoration

What to do

All they need to do is paint some plastic cups, poke a hole in each of them, and thread string through the bottom. You can experiment with various speaking activities but we recommend the old school game of telephone where kids whisper to their parents and pass the message around.
