My kids adore Supertato, actually I do too, I think Sue Hendra might well be my favourite author for kids books! A couple of months back I went to a session at my local Children’s Centre that had some Supertato activities on and i overheard them saying that they’d had a bit of a hard time finding any Supertato resources online s I figured I’d write up my own! These would all be fun to do as extension activities for the book and or just as a way of keeping the fun going – in fact while I was looking for a picture for this my old ran over and started yelling ‘it’s Supertato, it’s Supertato!’
Happy Roald Dahl Day! Did you love Roald Dahl as a kid? I know I did and I spent far too many hours trying to be Matilda and learn telekenesis, didn’t quite seem to work though?! To celebrate the day I’m sharing a super quick craft with you as well as giving you the chance to win two copies of The Twits book. Puffin have brought out two covers for this classic book, one with a furry beard and one with scratch and sniff stickers and I’ve got one of each to give away!
I’ve really enjoyed being a Miffy Mum this year. Both my kids love Miffy anyway but it’s helped inspire a few ideas that I might not have thought of otherwise. Keeping toddlers entertained can be tricky, especially before they can talk and tell you what they want to do. Of course, at nearly two years old my toddler has lots of ways of communicating with us, but her main messages seem to be ‘more crackers’ or ‘look at my shoes! I love my shoes!’ rather than ‘hey mummy, lets do something awesome to improve my fine motor skills that’s also super cute too’. Thankfully on some occasions I manage to fill in the blanks for her so while we spent a morning alone I set up this sweet Miffy activity for her to do!
We are all struck down with Man Flu this week, so today while my son was at Playgroup and my daughter was having a nap I thought I’d try and make a little craft to make them smile. We’ve been reading Miffy in The Garden and both my kids love to garden too (or in my youngest’s case, eat dirt). But with the weather today? No thanks. I thought this Miffy small world would give them the chance to ‘play gardening’ inside and hurray because they loved it!
Did you know that this year is Miffy’s 60th birthday? She looks pretty good for it right?! Miffy is a firm favourite at our house with both my son and my daughter loving the stories by Dick Bruna. I was really happy to be asked by the people at Miffy if I’d like to help Miffy celebrate her birthday by being a Miffy Mum and sharing some cool Miffy stuff this year, they had me at the title alone! I’m starting my Miffy Mums posts by sharing these gorgeous free Miffy colouring pages which I know kids are going to love colouring in!
