1. Watch the story of ‘The Princess and the Pea.’

Princess stories next kids story is Princess and the Pea. For more bedtime stories and fairy tales please visit our Kids Story Channel.Please subscribe for m...

2. We are going to look at finding out which materials are best for making a comfortable bed for the princess. Collect a range of materials from around the house, this could include cotton wool, felt, bubble wrap, foam, plastic, or wooden bricks.


3. Have a feel of the different materials you have collected and describe how each material feels.


4. Grab a small, dried pea or a small bead to test under each material. Press your hand down onto the material with the pea or bead under and discuss how it feels? What can you feel? Is it hard or soft?


5. As you are testing your materials, think about if you can feel the pea or if you can’t and put the materials into two different groups under the headings, comfortable and not comfortable. Take a picture of your findings!


6. Then think about how you are going to record your findings, could you create a table writing a list of your materials which are comfortable or not. Maybe you could draw your perfect material bed and label it. Does it have to be just one material, or can you have multiple layers?


Can’t wait to see your findings and how to record your investigation.

Choosing activities:

As part of our EYFS Curriculum the children would access a range of choosing activities and learn together and individually through play. I have set some options for you to choose from below. These do not all need to be completed and can be more independent for your child to complete and play maybe even alongside a sibling.


1. Continue with your Art challenge task: For the next 30 days, you could complete the art challenge below. Please do not worry if your picture is not exactly 5cm x 5cm as long as it’s a small piece of paper so that at the end your drawings can all be put together to create your very own 30-day art collage. I can’t wait all those amazing drawings!  


2. Maths task: Can you complete the number mattress activity using the document below. Can you order your numbers to 20 correctly? Will you be able to complete ‘the princess and the peas’ bed?


3. Creative, role-play task: Choose your favourite fairy tale and create some puppets for your puppet show! Can you retell the story using the puppets? Have the popcorn and drinks ready for your audience.
