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 daughter ran over and started yelling ‘it’s Supertato, it’s Supertato!’
