Bookish Play : Icky little duckling

How to start

We always start our bookish play in the same way each week, by reading through the book and opening discussion on the characaters, story and talking about the illustrations.Then we move onto the activity that accompanies the book’s theme.To compliment this book, I wanted to set up an oats sensory bin as the little duckling in the story loves oats.

You will need:

  • Container large
  • Container small
  • Spoon or scoop
  • Oats
  • Rubber duck

How to play :

Into the large container pour 2 or 3 cups of oats. You can flavour this with vanilla/ caramel or mint essence to add to the sensory play.Place the duck in the container.Give your child a smaller container to scoop oats from the larger container into.
