50 Things to do before you’re Five Launch:

10am – 2pm – Herbert Art Gallery (CV1 5QP)

‘50 Things To Do Before You’re Five’ is packed with fun, low-cost, or no-cost activities to enjoy with children.  It’s a great way to support their communication skills, early learning, and self-confidence. It comes as an app that can be downloaded for free, and as activity cards available at libraries, Family Hubs, and other locations across the city.!/welcome

The scheme is to be officially launched at the Herbert Art Gallery on Wednesday 15th November from 10am-2pm, before an audience including school children, local nurseries, Family Hubs and partner organisations that have helped to make it possible.

Members of the public are welcome to attend and to bring along their little ones as well.

The 50 Things include ideas such as:

  • Mini Beasts and Bug Hunting
  • Shout and Shhh
  • See The Stars
  • Dressing Up
  • Hocus Pocus Potions
  • See it Live
  • The Wheels on the Bus
  • Woodland Wandering
  • Calm and Colourful in Coventry
  • Great Coventry Cooking

Families can tick off the activities as they go, and each one is designed to make children better prepared for learning when they start school, which helps them to become more likely to be successful in their GCSEs and later life.

The experiences all build skills and language, supporting brain development in young children, as well as being great fun!
