Invite parents to help organise a family fun event in the grounds of your setting. Why not organise a shared picnic lunch, afternoon tea or barbecue to make it a truly memorable event? On the day, provide each child with a special card that can be ‘stamped’ every time an activity is attempted to encourage participation and provide lots of shiny star stickers for best effort and winners. At the end of the day, present every child with a large ‘medal’ on a ribbon as reward for their enthusiasm.
