My DS broke up from school last Friday and brought home some homework. He has to fill a takeaway style tub with non perishable objects beginning with "O". I have had a total mind blank all week. He is back on Monday and this blardy box needs filling. HELP, I need some mumsnet inspiration smile

Since he is only 3, they are probably looking for the sound 'o', not the letter 'o'. So yes to orange crayon, octonaught and olive, no to onions and oil.

But filling a box with pictures you're going to need hundreds! grin

My niece's preschool did something similar as a sponsored activity. Thankfully we only had to jam as many specific coloured objects in as possible. After the first one we got much more devious better. Pictures sounds like a great idea.

DS goes to a Montessori nursery and a term-time only local one. Neither of them would be so ridiculous as to set homework. Ignore.

Opal fruits, are they non perishable? I can't believe they have homework at 3!

Is there some point to this stupid homework?

In would object too, he's got enough us of homework to come. Can't he just do some playing!

Lego blocks are oblong.

Yeh, homework from preschool. He is 4 soon, is this not normal? He had to make a Christmas collage over the last school holidays.

anything 'oval'

perhaps not an item of 'opal' jewellery...

Chopsypie Fri 15-Feb-13 08:22:39

Or get him to draw various O things and put the pictures in?

adeucalione Fri 15-Feb-13 08:22:37

simple paper 'origami' shape?

BewitchedBotheredandBewildered Fri 15-Feb-13 08:22:26

oak leaves

Homework... for a three year old... sad

MummyDoIt Fri 15-Feb-13 08:21:11

Could you get away with pictures of things? That would give you a lot more scope, eg oak tree, octopus, plus all the perishables already suggested.

adeucalione Fri 15-Feb-13 08:21:03

toy owl, otter or orang utan?

adeucalione Fri 15-Feb-13 08:18:53

octagon
oil
leaflet for 'opticians'?

Change his name to Oliver and let him wear it?
