Tumble Tots at Home

Providing activities and entertainment to little ones at home!

17th March 2020

Tumble Tots (UK) Ltd

With all the uncertainty and negativity surrounding coronavirus at the moment, we are hoping to provide our members with some continuity and positivity via the wonders of social media!

We know that you and your little ones will be missing classes for the foreseeable future so every day Tumble Tots (UK) Ltd will be streaming your favourite action songs and exercises as well as providing other ideas for activities to do during lockdown.

Although it’s not the same as being in real classes, we want to encourage children to continue being active, healthy and happy, even at home.

STICKER TIME

We know that little ones will be missing their stickers as well as classes so we’ve put together some special Tumble Tots at Home sticker designs for you to download and print at home.

You can print these onto regular paper or if you want REAL stickers, we recommend using these round labels from eBay (please note that our design fits 50mm/15 per sheet item only and may not fit other labels).

LOCK DOWN ACTIVITIES

During lockdown, we want to keep little ones as entertained as possible so in addition to the LIVE Facebook sessions, we have also been putting together other activities to do at home which help with the development of physical, social and cognitive skills (as well as being super fun!)

COLOURING IN

We will be uploading a different picture every week for you to download and print off at home.

Click the image to open a printable PDF in a new tab in your browser or right/alt click and select save as.

ACTIVITIES WITH EVERYDAY OBJECTS

  1. Gather a selection of boxes or saucepans along with a couple of wooden spoons. Arrange them in a space, put on ‘Grand Old Duke of York’ and bang the boxes just like a drum.
  2. Gather a selection of forks and spoons (or something similar), find a space and ask your little one to make different shapes.

ACIVITY GRID

Download our activity grid  and ask little ones to colour in the squares when they’ve completed the task!

We hope to re-open classes after the Easter holidays but we will update everyone as soon as we have more information.

In the meantime, please enjoy Tumble Tots at Home!
