We’ve been big fans of Julia Donaldson’s What The Ladybird Heard series so I was excited to hear that there was a new book out in the series and as we enjoyed it so much I thought it would be good to share some easy What The Ladybird Heard at the Seaside activities too….
Activities for Children's Books
My kids adore Supertato, actually I do too, I think Sue Hendra might well be my favourite author for kids books! This post was inspired by a session I went to at my local Children’s Centre that had some Supertato activities on and I overheard the staff saying that they’d had a bit of a hard time finding any Supertato resources online so 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 daughter ran over and started yelling ‘it’s Supertato, it’s Supertato!’
You’ll find lots of ideas here suitable for preschoolers and EYFS as well as KS1 and of course lots that you can do at home with your child too!
My kids enjoyed reading Supertato as preschoolers but it’s still a popular book while my daughter has moved through infants school so I hope that it’s a resource that you’ll return to again over the years.
With the cold weather starting to settle in I thought it would be good to share something a little seasonal to keep the kids occupied if you don’t fancy braving the outdoor weather. The arctic has got to be as cold as it gets and these arctic animal crafts for kids are all super cute! Hopefully there’ll be some in here that you kids will love too. There are lots of arctic animal crafts for toddlers and preschoolers in this list but lots are suitable for school age kids too, just take a look through and find the ones which are best suited to your child.
Advert. I’m so excited to share with you these super cute crafts to celebrate the publication of the new Narwhal and Jelly series by Ben Clanton! These books are perfect for kids – I know this because when I went to photograph them my two had hidden them in their ‘special place for books they don’t want touching’ and they’ve spent the weekend giggling along to Narwhal and Jelly’s adventures in the ocean complete with jokes, facts and a lot about waffles! These Narwhal and Jelly paper plate crafts are super easy to make so after your kids have had fun reading the books they’ll be able to have fun making their own super duo….
I think it’s fair to say that Julia Donaldson is one of my kids favourite authors and I know that the same can be said of an awful lot of other children too. What The Ladybird Heard is one of our favourite stories (as well as the two sequels) and these What The Ladybird Hears activities and crafts are great either as extension activities for the books or just as a simple way to keep your child entertained and having fun….
