There is a new free app for families in Hertfordshire called 50 Things to do before you’re five. It’s full of ideas for activities and experiences that are free or low cost (under £20 for a family of 4) and encourages communication and language, being active and trying new things. Many experiences are outdoors and open ended so the whole family can take part! The intention is to improve outcomes for younger children and the app is designed to support families and focus on developing early language skills.
The app also offers the ability to build a digital memory bank of your child's activities and special memories, these memories can be shared with your class teacher and included in your child's learning journey.
For more details, please find attached a guide to downloading the app or visit www.50thingstodo.org
50 Things To Do aims to provide inspiration for parents and carers to connect with children through a range of activities, all designed to have a positive impact on learning and health.
