Make a paper telescope with tamariki to encourage pretend play. Pretend play helps develop vocabulary, empathy, creativity, and complex thinking.
How to do it
You’ll need: A paper towel roll (or sellotape and a piece of paper), a torch and some good flexibility!
Telescope time: Close one eye and look through a paper towel roll (or a rolled up piece of paper). What can you see? Play pirates and hunt for your favourite things.
Night-time fun: Go on a torch walk or play flashlight hide and seek.
Upside downies: Bend forwards and look through your legs or do a headstand!
