Understanding the World
Can you build a house for one of the animals in the story, you could use Lego, boxes, card, paper or you might like to try something like the photo below and use sticks you have collected from outside.
use the sheets below or draw your own characters from the story and try and write as many 'wow' or describing words around them. Then draw your favourite part of the story you can have a go at writing a sentence about your favourite part of the story or your grown up could write it for you.
Understanding the world
You might like to make some Gruffalo inspired food, maybe try making your favourite fruit crumble but call it 'Gruffalo crumble' or decorate some biscuits or cookies with 'claws'
We would love to see some Gruffalo art work and there are lots of different activities for you to choose from. You can make a handprint Gruffalo, use a paper bag and make a standing up Gruffalo character. You could simply paint what you think the Gruffalo looks like or make a mask. There are some pictures to give you some ideas and we look forward to seeing your Gruffalo art!
