This week’s topic is all about Halloween and the opportunities it gives us to play and learn. Join Jemma for a Talktime Video about how we can support children’s curiosity by exploring play with pumpkins. There's also have a great activity idea – making a witch’s potion out of easily accessible items and using it as a fun opportunity to talk about colours and textures with your child. Finally, we have some fantastic Halloween baking ideas for the whole family.

This week’s Adventures at Home topic is about separation anxiety - something that every child will experience at some stage, and in Jennie’s Talktime Video she discusses techniques for easing separation anxiety.  We also show how playing peek-a-boo can demonstrate an object’s permanence and help introduce the idea of separation to young children. Finally, we have an activity idea: making a sensory bag with your child’s favourite items, which will help them to explore their environment and build attachment.
