Aha! Oho! A trail in the snow! Whose are these footprints, and where do they go?
The Gruffalo’s child goes in search of the big bad mouse, and has all sorts of exciting encounters on their journey. This turns the idea of who is scary and what is frightening on its head; use our specially designed activity sheet to explore the story through creative crafts, innovative play ideas and topical talking points; where have you explored together? How does the mouse trick the Gruffalo into thinking it is frightening? Explore shadows, through shadow puppets, learn about tracks and trails left by animals, create and enjoy sensory snow and so much more! The activity sheet provides so many ideas to explore the story that this story sack will continue to entertain and delight children and adults alike for years!
