Chattersacks are themed bags with music, a book and activities for parents to share with their children. Chattersacks are designed to encourage speech, language and communication skills. Chattersacks are designed to be shared between an adult and child. Whilst you play the games, look at the books and sing the songs you are helping your child to learn and understand new words, and have fun while you’re at it!
There are 8 different Chattersacks available for you to borrow – all we ask is that you return them a week after you have borrowed them to enable the other children to enjoy them too.
If you would like to borrow one of the Chattersacks please see Julia, if you borrow 4 Chattersacks then your child will receive a certificate!
Children at this age absorb so much and are eager to learn so learning through play is a great way to develop their language and have real fun! Play games inside and outside and even on the move.
