Top Tips to be a designer anywhere...

  • get creative! Use household items to model or build something new
  • help your child to safely take part in cooking for the family and thinking about how we use different ingredients
  • start a sketch book to record ideas for new inventions or improvements to existing things
  • follow instructions together next time to build or assemble something at home. See which tools or materials can be used by your child
