The following activities can be printed off and copied for use in your early years setting or, for parents, at home.

All of the files are in PDF format and require Adobe Acrobat Reader to access them. This can be obtained free of charge from the Adobe website. Click on the link below. 

Adobe Acrobat Reader can be configured to launch directly from your browser, so you can click on a pdf link and view it immediately. You will need to click on the 'BACK' button on your browser to return to this page.

TIP!! Open Adobe Acrobat Reader separately and then minimise it, you will find that the pdf files will load more quickly in your browser as you will not have to launch Acrobat Reader for each individual file.
