  2. Choose six exercises and number these from 1 to 6 on your page.
  3. Head outside and get started! Roll the dice and whatever number appears is the exercise everyone does.
  4. Take turns rolling the dice and continue until you are all puffed out.

Talking together

As above, ask questions that support your child to explore the space and look for detail. Talk about what they find, what they like, and why.

You can build on this list to add other items to find. Older children might like to write about what they see and hear, or perhaps create a drawing or painting.
