This week’s social media topic, continuing our ‘Adventures at Home’ series, is all about encouraging your child to try new things. 

We have a Talktime video focussing on food, with some excellent advice about how to encourage your little ones to try new foods.  We also have an activity idea, of creating an ‘I can’ can, so your child can take pride in recording their new achievements - giving them confidence and increasing their motivation to try new things.  Finally, we show the importance of dress rehearsals, showing that letting your child practice what will happen in a new situation will help to put them at ease.

Have a look our Facebook and Instagram pages for more information, and other great activity ideas in our Adventures at Home series:
