Book Activities for Winston and the Indoor Cat by Leila Rudge
This CBCA 2022 notable early childhood book feels like a new take on Aesop's fable of the country mouse and city mouse. Each is content with their own home but feels everyone else should love it too.
The team at Learn From Play have created 4 activities for this book which are sorting items into inside and outside items, drawing a cat using step by step instructions, a double maze to get both the inside and outside cats home and a simple fish counting activity because the outdoor cat likes to catch fresh fish.
You may also wish to ask your children if they prefer being indoors or outdoors and why they think this is the case or have them try to convince a classmate that something they like is preferable to something their classmate likes such as peanut butter versus cheese sandwiches.
The games below are advertisement free and will open in a new window. They can be played by children online as many times as they like. The Match Up Memory Card Game will allow children to improve their memory while the Maze Game lets them develop strategy and problem solving skills while having fun. These games will also build children's attention, concentration and focus, visual recognition and short-term memory. Enjoy.
