TEACHERS! CAREGIVERS! LIBRARIANS! I’ve rounded up TEN activities created just for LITTLE EWE: THE STORY OF ONE LOST SHEEP (Beaming Books) — perfect for spring or summer, or any time of year. Enjoy!
ONE: Make your own fluffy Little Ewe (great for preschool storytime) and then play hide and seek.
TWO: Do a book-themed Read, Discuss, DO. (or two!)
THREE: After reading the story, play a book-themed listening game over at Susanna Leonard Hill’s blog.
FOUR: Follow up a Little Ewe story time with a cute paper-plate sheep craft at Glitter on a Dime.
FIVE: Have your kids draw pictures of their favorite scenes/characters and then share on your socials using the hashtag #littleewe.
SIX: After reading the story, spark meaningful conversation using this teacher-created list of lessons to cherish from Little Ewe.
SEVEN: Make a knitted Little Ewe craft (for shepherds to knit, although it is easy enough for older little lambs as well.)
EIGHT: Follow up Little Ewe story time by making an adorable little lamb resting box (for the little lamb you knitted above or the toy lamb of your choice) and playing a game found over at Celebrate Picture Books.
NINE: Share with little ones how figs made it into the book, then have a figgy snack using this behind-the-scenes post for inspiration.
TEN: Download the Little Ewe activity kit over at Beaming Books (includes craft ideas, reading ideas, coloring pages and a maze!).
