Hi everyone, I'm Jude - a storyteller and author. with my trusty mascots Lamby and Flossie we were lucky enough to go on a visit to South America. Join our day of activities inspired by our visit to Peru.

Find out all about Lamby and Flossie's trip to Peru and the wonderful things they saw there.

Packing our Cases
Can you help to sort out your clothes or your toy's clothes ready for a trip. Will they need clothes for different types of weather? Will they need swimming costumes? Which clothes would be best and which can be left behind?
This activity encourages children to think about the weather and which clothes are best. It also encourages them to sort things according to whether they will be useful or not. The activity encourages children to talk about their ideas and make their own decisions. Develops Mathematical, Understanding the World, Communication and Language skills.
Make an Inca Pattern
I love making patterns, do you? Have a look at the lovely patterns I saw when I was in Peru, they are called Inca Patterns. Can you make your own pattern using buttons, sticky shapes, pasta or other craft bits?
Encourage the children to select the materials they will use to make their pattern. Have a look at the pictures of the patterns provided and talk about the colours and shapes. You might like to make a pattern with your child to encourage them to have a go. Develops - Fine Motor, Creative and Maths Skills
