Whānau can celebrate Matariki with their tamariki by making shared kai and enjoying time together. Take this opportunity to make a wish to Hiwa-i-te-rangi – the star our dreams and aspirations are connected to.
Why do it?
- To strengthen the fine muscles in their hands and fingers, which will help them when they start writing letters and numbers.
- Home is the first learning place and the whānau are the first teachers a child has.
- A young child doesn’t always need special learning activities. Simple everyday household activities and routines can provide learning experiences in a familiar environment.
