It’s a scary time for everyone at the moment with the coronavirus looming. As there have been school closures all around the country you may have noticed that working from home with children present can be challenging, but having resources to combat that is important.
Arts and crafts are a way to relax your child's mind and improve their mental health while keeping them creative. One way to help with this is by using our activity sheets to follow Big Todd and his friends on their adventures!
Big Todd is the mascot for Big Toddle which is a sponsored walk for under-5s. It’s a wonderful way to teach young children to care about others and have some active fun at the same time. Normally this event is held outdoors but due to the current situation, you’re able to do this in the comfort of your own home.
You can complete these activity sheets with your little ones:
Big Toddle Colouring Sheet - Colour in Big Todd and the children participating in the sponsored walk dressed up as superheroes
Big Toddle Easy Animal Mask - Make a fun mask to wear on the day of your Big Toddle. There are lots of different animals to choose from
Big Todd’s Spot the Difference - Find and circle the 7 differences in our roar-some safari scene
Big Todd’s Safari Map - Natural curiosity is encouraged on your Big Toddle. Fill in the blank circles with things for your little ones to look out for during the Toddle (You can print off animals and stick them around the house for your little ones to find!)
Big Todd’s Safari Maze - There are two parts to this activity! Part 1: Draw a line between the animal picture and the name of the animal. Part 2: Fill in the space with the missing letter in the animal name
Big Toddle Make a Medal - Turn your Big Toddle sticker into a medal for an extra special reward after your sponsored walk
