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!
Activities for Children's Books
Welcome back to this weeks Tuesday Tutorials. This week we wave goodbye to Anna who is retiring from Tuesday Tutorials and welcome along The Boy and Me, do go and check out her blog if you haven’t before! Last week we had some really cool Dr Seuss activities linked up so I thought this week it would be fun to take those and add a couple more cool ideas I found on the internet to make this into Six Superb Dr Seuss Activities – mainly because I love a bit of alliteration!
Along with 30 other bloggers I’m taking part in the Story Book Advent on Rainy Day Mum. We love doing crafts that tie in with the stories we’re reading and for this I thought we’d try to make a glittery Christmas star suncatcher to go with the story Suzy Goose and the Christmas Star. This is a really fun Christmas star craft for preschoolers as long as you are prepared to wipe up a bit of glitter!
This week both my kids have been ill so while my daughter slept it off I wanted to do a simple activity with my son that he could still enjoy while feeling a bit under the weather. He adores playdoh so I thought that this rose scented playdough might be a fun introduction to making our own scented ones.
My kids love all Clare Freedman’s Underpants books but I think the alien themed one is probably our favourite, rhyming stories are always a hit with children and anything that might count as slightly rude or cheeky is always a winner with my kids too! These Aliens Love Underpants activities and crafts are loads of fun with alien dressing up ideas, a flying saucer craft, maths activities, easy alien crafts and a cool small world play idea.
