Julia Donaldson Book Activities

We love Julia Donaldson and have some lovely Julia Donaldson book activities for you on the site. If the name Julia Donaldson doesn’t immediately ring a bell we are sure that The Gruffalo will! If you are looking for some activities to go hand in hand with the books that your kids know and love then this is the place for you to be.

Let’s take a look at some of the wonderful resources we have for you, shall we?

Room on the Broom

Room on the Broom is one of the most popular of Julia Donaldson’s books, so we had to include some printable activities for your kids to enjoy. These activities go hand in hand with the book and bring the magic to life!

Make a mini broom, make a wand, have fun with some colouring in sheets, and even make a mask. Your kids are sure to enjoy these activities a lot so scroll down to go to the appropriate post!

Stick Man

Another favourite is Stick Man. Let your kids help the stick man find his way back to the family tree, practice counting with a connect the dots activity, and even work on their focus and concentration with a spot the difference page.

What the Ladybird Heard

Practice animal sounds with a free printable activity set that goes in conjunction with What the Ladybird Heard. This lovely activity set helps your kids practice and recognise animal sounds as well as enjoy colouring in some of your favourite scenes from the story.

Sharing a Shell

What’s life like for a tiny hermit crab that has found a new shell? Well, as the title suggests it gets tricky as he doesn’t want to share it. If your kids are fans of Crab, Blob, and Bush then this printable set will bring them lots of joy.

Lastly, we can’t forget to mention The Gruffalo! Find some fun food ideas for your kids party here too, just scroll down for more.
