Good morning Badgers! Sorry it’s a snow day and school is closed, but here are some ideas of things to do today.
You could watch the Gruffalo story on YouTube and sing along to the Gruffalo song. The Little Badgers love the song more than the story. If you manage to get outside at all, you could go for a Gruffalo hunt around the garden or the park.
If you prefer to stay indoors, you could make some pretend snow. Try mixing cornflour and bicarbonate of soda with some hair conditioner to make lovely, crunchy, smelly snow. It’s messy, so do it in the kitchen and close the door! You could try using white flour and add a little water so it goes a bit sticky.
Try this recipe!
You could also try making your own play dough. If your Little Badger might eat large quantities of it, just mix flour and water with some food colouring. If they don’t usually eat inedible things, you could try the recipe below, but you’ll need cream of tartar from the baking section of the supermarket.
Well, have a lovely day with the Little Badgers and don’t forget to send in some photos of what they get up to, using the Postbox email address. Hopefully we’ll see them all tomorrow!
