Making a book activity 1: Favourite pets
Animals are great companions. It’s easy to talk to them and they seem to understand exactly how we’re feeling and know just what we need.
We’re going to start making our book with a picture of a pet and you’re going to help us choose which one. Please tell us in comments below what animals you have as pets. Or would like to have as a pet. Tell us your pet’s name and what makes them special. Show us a photo.
Let us know about your pets by Friday and that will decide the picture for the first month in the diary. Our artist, Tanja will work over the weekend on a picture of the favourite pet which we’ll show you on Monday (before our next activity on Tuesday).
Here’s our winner!
Dogs are the winners in your vote for favourite pet! Our artist Tanja worked over the weekend on the first picture for our book and here she is, a sausage dog. But what shall we call her? Give us your suggestions in comments and we’ll announce her name tomorrow.
We loved hearing about all your pets. The animals that share your homes sound like they give you so much fun, friendship and love. So many of them seem to understand how you’re feeling, especially when you’re poorly or sad.
Tomorrow we’ll tell you this week’s activity in making our book together – what magical creatures do we want to include?
