I’m so excited about this collaboration that it’s taken a lot of effort on my part to keep it quiet until now! Peter Rabbit was always one of my favourite books when I was a kid and I’ve loved seeing how the stories have evolved over time, both with the TV series and now with a new Peter Rabbit film. I was asked by Joules if I could come up with some Peter Rabbit crafts to celebrate their collaboration with Peter Rabbit and my kids were desperate to be involved, in fact we did these first thing on New Years Day as they absolutely couldn’t wait any longer!
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!’
Last year at school my son studied The Snail and the Whale by Julia Donaldson and I remember thinking at the time that there weren’t that many The Snail and the Whale crafts about so after making our movable paper plate ghost last week I thought it would be fun to try and make a little craft of the two friends off on their adventure around the world!
I’m so excited today to be working with Ora to celebrate world space week and share some news with you about their partnership with Penguin Random House Children’s UK book Goodnight Spaceman (which I love! Really love!) This awesome partnership means that you could get your hands on a audiobook of Goodnight Spaceman read by the first British ESA Astronaut Tim Peake and recorded by him in space. I’m also sharing two rather cool little crafts to go alongside it – one below myself which has a free printable and one from Ora. Ready for adventure? Belt up and let me tell you about all of it!
Superworm by Julia Donaldson is one of our favourite kids books and while we were reading it the other night I suddenly realised that it would be super easy to do some sensory play along side it. As well as playing with it my three year old daughter really enjoyed helping me set this Superworm sensory play up and we had a good time reading along with the book and acting it out too!
