Ask the children to make a list with you of some of the things that sometimes make life hectic at home, e.g. first thing in the morning, or at homework time.
Then ask them to draw x2 boxes on a page and in the first one to draw or write about one of the most hectic times they can remember at home.
Leave the second box free for later.
Invite the children to draw/design or make a Switch Watch like the one in the story.
Then invite children to imagine they are holding the Switch Watch they just made and making a wish for the hectic scenario they drew in Box 1 to change to be much less hectic.
In the second box they draw or write what this less hectic scene would look like if the Switch watch worked.
Which scene do they like the most, the hectic or the more peaceful?
Can you discuss with the children what you could all do to make life more peaceful for everybody while they are off school?
Would having a Switch Watch to make time stand still or even rewind it, be useful?
