I love activities that you can do alongside kids favourite books and these If You Give A Mouse A Cookie activities are all fantastic! The book itself is a classic with sixteen further books in the the series but of course you can’t beat the original! With maths games, sensory bottles and puppets these would make great If You Give A Mouse A Cookie activities for preschool but there’s plenty of fun ideas that older kids will enjoy too.

I am so excited to be working with Macmillan Children’s Books to share with you this edible playdough recipe! Firstly, because Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet are two of my favourite people when it comes to childrens books. Yes, my kids love them too (Supertato is crazy popular here) but I’m normally the one reading and it’s their books I go to first as well. Secondly because to celebrate the launch of their new book Cake we’ve been making some birthday cake themed edible playdough and it smelt sooooo good! I had my daughter on hand as product tester and she had a great time with this – I hope your kids love it just as much!

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!
