Introducing Can-Do Child® Activities

The best way of introducing you to Can-Do Child® play ideas is to sample them yourself!

Dr Gummer's Good Play GuideEndorsed by Dr Gummer's Good Play Guide, our activity cards are the perfect solution for busy parents, and anyone short on time and ideas, but wanting to help children develop a Can-Do mindset and skills for life through easy, everyday screen-free play.

Download the sample card content for free including play ideas for children aged 3-5 years, and 5-7 years. For 3-5 years we also have free content samples of the Easy Early Learning cards, supporting children's learning linked directly to the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework (you can found out more about these on our toolkit page).

You can also download the STAR READER activity sheet (PDF) from Lorraine's new book 'A Parent's Guide to Easy Screen Free Activities Children Will Love'.

can do activity cardsFeedback from parents, nurseries, childminders, and playgroups has been overwhelmingly positive:

"What a great idea! I often struggle with ideas to keep the kids busy at home but keen to make sure what they do is helping them with what they're learning at school too. These are ideal."

"I can't wait to try these activities out. So many of them are based around the things we do in our family everyday, I didn't realise how easy it could be!"

"I love the quality of these cards, they feel strong like they won't tear easily and will withstand spills and muddy fingers."

Based around everyday situations, Can-Do Child® play ideas need little or no planning or extra money.can do activity cards

The sample activities illustrate the kind of enjoyment you can have nurturing children's can-do mindset and life skills, bringing together the three core elements of Engagement, Enterprise, and Enjoyment.

Every child is unique and therefore finding the style of language and interaction to suit your own situation and child/ren is really important. The play ideas are not prescriptive, so you can discover what works for you. Be inspired by the activities. Be inspired by your child.
