Our Gruffalo day was fantastic! I really would encourage any parent to do this or have a Gruffalo inspired party there is a plethora of resources out there to have a really good day.
We started our morning making a Gruffalo Cake. Whilst playing our latest CD from the library which is the Gruffalo songs
Just the sponge at first as it needed time to cool. We went to the park and recreated the Gruffalo with print outs that I got from Twinkl. We first had to go on the swings and slides, then settled down on a bench before our walk to read the Gruffalo
I really do not know why I have not thought of taking books with us before on a picnic (probably the thought of carrying them) as Little Boo just sat and listened really well.
Little Boo enjoyed thinking of places where the characters could go and knew what came next in the story better than I did! We were busy finding a tree for the owl, a log pile for the snake then a hole for the fox. She picked the characters that were needed for each photograph. We did get some strange looks from people passing which was quite funny.

When we came home we finished making the Gruffalo cake and had this for pudding after tea and it was lovely!
Little Boo keeps saying now that we had a, "Gruffalo Day" hence the name for the post. I hope that you like this and that the links may be useful for parties or Gruffalo days.
