Upside down world


Upside down world

What to do with this activity?

When you go for a walk, look for puddles.
You can show your child how the trees, buildings, and even the clouds, are upside down in the water - it's an upside down world!
Tell your child that it is their reflection they can see in a puddle.
Make sure your child has their wellies on, and then they can have fun splashing in puddles.



  • Why am I doing this?

    Children’s ability to think and understand experiences develops by listening and speaking. As a child’s language becomes more complex so does their ability to understand more complex thoughts and ideas. The family is the child’s first source of language and learning and there are lots of everyday activities that occur in the home, which can help children’s language skills. Your child will get better at using words when they practice words and hear the sounds of words.

  • How can I do more?

    Just keep talking and listening. Normal routines provide lots of opportunities for conversation and for all the family to learn new things. If you are walking down a street, point out things you see and talk about them. Explain new words, show the colours or point out shapes. Ask your child what animals or buildings they like. There’s no end to what you can talk about together.
