Read through the story again or listen to the story. Talk to your adult about what a Bog Baby is and how it is really not a pet but a wild thing. What did their mum tell them? Discuss what you should and should not do with a Bog Baby and make a list on your worksheet or make your own about what the girls did right and wrong about keeping a Bog Baby as a pet. Save Our Bog Baby.


Day 4 The very busy spider. There is a variety of activities that can be completed in relation to the story. You don’t have to complete them all. Chose the ones you think are easier to complete at home.


Make a Monet style painting of his Pond with Water Lilies using a paper plate. Put large splodges of various shades of green, blue and yellow on the paper plate and mix together using your hands.
