Launch of 50 things to do before you’re five!


A group of 17 people travelled from Bradford to the national launch of 50 things to do before you’re five at the Houses of Parliament. The launch was hosted by Naz Shah, MP for Bradford West. It was a very exciting day for us all, Iqra and her mum Nafeesa got to meet Diane Abbott MP.


The 50 things app can be downloaded from Google Play and the App Store. Start ticking off your 50 indoor, outdoor, seasonal, home-based and out-and-about activities, that are not only fun but will get your little one off to a flying start with their learning and language development.
