    Endless ideas!!
    Books, singing, jigsaws, outdoor play, ball pool, tents, sensory box, painting... I could go on. Just use the resources you already have, as I'm sure you've catered for all the ages you mentioned. They do have a shorter attention span at these ages so have back up activities or just do good old Free Play and let the kids do the activity they chose themselves, they're more likely to play longer then x

    All basic activities are good for these ages. You will see how they learn from watching them and find that you will naturally encourage them to try next level stuff without even thinking about it. Remember you're only looking at the first 3 areas of EYFS for most of your mindees at the moment and most of the activities mentioned before are good for these
