Thunkies Activities​

The art of Conversation

These activities focus on the use of language, especially developing good questioning skills in all kinds of situations. This increases children’s understanding, their enthusiasm for exploring ideas, and to help them make decisions, whether on their own or together with family and friends.

The art of Play

These physical activities focus on practical play in the home and draw on the three fundamental drivers of all thought: imagination, information finding and making judgements. Some activities can be performed without the addition of any materials, and some will need families to collect items in order to play together.

The Thunkies encourage the development of a child’s thinking that shapes both speech and practical skills. In addition to the activities shown here, the weekly newsletter will bring you fresh activities with the Thunkies. You can sign up below.
