Bear hunt tough spot idea! The children loved playing and rebelling the story, also a lovely sensory activity. I used grass, a bowl of water, some mud, twigs, hamster bedding and glitter (!!) and made a cave using a loo roll and newspaper. The writing was just chalk straight onto the tray :)
There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly! --- This is our old lady! I made her with a flip lid trash can. Then I found an object that goes with everything that she swallowed. I hand them out to the kids. When it comes to their object in the book, then they "feed" the old lady!
