“Make your own TV show!

Play a glass orchestra.

Race a model car.

Play the saving-water game!

Build a marshmallow catapult.

Say ‘hello’ in 10 languages.”

Including both child and adult-led activities to try, coupled with visually enticing narrative, children will be learning without even knowing it.

In fact, I plan to take this into my Pre School to use some of the exercises and games with our younger children. A great resource for younger children. Well done the OKIDO team!
