Home Learning Activity – Story Hunt

by Kids Inc Nurseries | 25 August 2021 | Blog

Continuing methods of learning at home are vital for your child’s early development, so try out this story hunt activity at home.

Find Your Favourite Story

Choose your favourite story book and then explore your house to try and find the characters, whether they are stuffed toys, plastic models or playdough cutters, etc.

Example: One of our children’s favourite story books is ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ and in this book there is a family, a bear, and lots of elements such as grass, mud, water etc.

Get Creative

Once you have gathered the props for the story, try putting on different voices for each character. If you cannot find any props, try making puppets from wooden spoons, lolly sticks or just drawing pictures of your child’s favourite character. Older children can try and model their favourite character from play-dough or cookie mix.

Learning Areas

In nursery, we focus on learning through play to encourage skills and personal development.

The learning areas used in this activity include: literacy, listening, language development and learning new words, personal, social and emotional development, recognising letters or small details, knowledge of the world, imaginative play and hand eye co-ordination.
