The 50 Fantastic Ideas series is packed full of fun, original, skills-based activities for Early Years practitioners to use with children aged 0-5.

Each activity features step-by-step guidance, a list of resources, and a detailed explanation of the skills children will learn.

Creative, simple, and highly effective, this series is a must-have for every Early Years setting. The EYFS asks that practitioners plan opportunities for active exploration and play that lead to the use of creative and critical thinking skills. In order to be able to create and think critically, children should be encouraged to use their imaginations and act autonomously.

Practitioners need to have the confidence to step back and allow the children to take the lead.

This involves setting up open-ended learning opportunities that get children asking questions, investigating possibilities, looking for solutions, making decisions and coming up with creative ideas.

What's more, it means tapping into the realm of childhood fantasy and appealing to their sense of adventure.

Working in this way presents all kind of possibilities for exciting and stimulating learning experiences that will surprise and excite both children and practitioners. This book is resource bank full of inventive ideas for early years practitioners who want to fire young children's imaginations and get them talking and thinking.
