(1:32 mins) Play for 5 year olds play is still a very important part of their development.

This may be jumping on the trampoline, make a cubby house with sheets and pegs or getting messy with finger paint and slime. Simple science experiments and cause and effect activities will be particularly interesting to this age group.
