Our Hopster theme this month celebrates friendship. It is important to develop children’s social and emotional skills, and learning about friendship is the perfect way to do this.
On Hopster we have loads of great shows* which explore friendship, and will teach your kids the all important life skills they need for making and keeping friends.
Rita and Crocodile: This show is about a girl called Rita and her very hungry friend, Crocodile, who lives in the bathtub. Together they’re able to go everywhere and live funny and cute adventures in a humorous and imaginative way.
Ben and Holly: Young fairy princess Holly and her best friend, Ben Elf, live in Little Kingdom, a tiny land where flowers and grass grow above the tallest towers. Being a princess, Holly has magical powers, but her attempts at magic often end up causing mayhem for her and her friend.
Peg + Cat: This show not only teaches kids about the power of teamwork but also builds calculation skills too as Peg and her friend cat encounter unexpected challenges that require arithmetic and problem-solving skills. Each episode features two stories in which Peg and Cat face a math word problem that they must solve together.
Sesame Street Best Friends: In this mini series well-known sesame friends pair up and explore lots of friendship concepts which mirror real-life situations. These episodes teach kids how to be a good friend and the value of kindness.
SHARE: Our SHARE game helps children learn how to interact positively and appropriately with others. It is a great starting point for introducing the skills of sharing and turn-taking to little ones as well as encouraging children to think about their own emotional expressions. In this game, Fluffster’s friends want to join Fluffster in bouncing on the trampoline drum. The player must choose who should bounce next to keep them all happy but must pay attention to who’s looking the most left out and try to share the fun equally.
Key learning skills:
✅ Understand how they and others show feelings
✅ Can play cooperatively, taking turns with others
✅ Show sensitivity to others’ needs and feelings
Friendship makes our Hopster world go round. We hope you and your littlies have got lots of ideas for exploring friendship and are ready to go out there and make some friends.
