Give these fun family
activities a go this week!

There is so much we can do at home to encourage learning while having fun. Simple everyday activities like cooking and baking encourage learning through reading a recipe, measuring out ingredients and following instructions. 
Our Small Changes website was created to help families find the learning in activities they do together at home and to encourage families to spend more quality time together.
If you missed our last Small Changes email, you can check it out here.
