Hungry Little Minds

Hungry Little Minds Wigan Council

Everyday moments can be used to boost your child’s learning, and they are interested in all sorts of things.

The Hungry Little Minds campaign provides lots of simple tips and activities that you can slot into your routine and that children love:

• Children will make a game out of almost anything. When you play with them you can see their imaginations light up. Whether it’s I spy while on the bus, peek-a-boo at bath-time or even a game of teddy bears’ picnic at tea-time.

• Children love to talk about all sorts of things. It all goes in, even when they’re too young to say much back. 

• Children love it when you read with them. It all goes in; every single word. From a book, a magazine, even a shopping list.

Where do I start?

At Hungry Little Minds you can get age appropriate tips and activities to do with your child that do not require you to really change your daily routine. From singing songs such as nursery rhymes to talking about what you can see at the bus stop, all the tips are simple yet will help set them up nicely for when they go to school.
