Hungry Little Minds - https://hungrylittleminds.campaign.gov.uk/

Simple, fun activities for kids, from newborn to five. Many little things light up hungry little minds. Kids take everything in, and even the smallest things you do with them can make a big difference. They love it when you chat, play and read with them, even when they’re too young to understand everything. Whatever the time and wherever you are, you can turn almost anything into a game. And every little thing you do together will help set them up nicely for the day they start school.
