My Day

Get the children to lie down on the floor and act out, in silence, being asleep. It's 5 o'clock in the morning and as you move through the day calling out times, the children get to act out what they would be doing at that time on an average day.

As an art activity the children can draw themselves at each stage.

This activity can start discussions. It can also show you which children might not be getting breakfast, are left alone for extended periods or have a caring role.
