It seems like ages ago we saw Peter Rabbit in the theatre.
This was Ladybug’s first trip to the theatre. I promise she was more excited than it seems in this picture.
Gratuitous how-cute-is-that-smile shot.
During the week leading up to the show we did some Peter Rabbit activities. We used the Garden Preschool Pack from Homeschool Creations. Ladybug loved matching up the cards.
Jitterbug loved the game included in the pack. He had to flip through the cards and if it was a picture of something a plant needs to grow then he would colour in a square until he reached the top. He played this several times.
Ladybug had a go at it too.
We glued some vegetable pictures into a basket.
Sorted some seed packets.
Coloured some Peter Rabbit colouring pages.
This free download from Simple Schooling had a couple of worksheets at the end of it that Skeeterbug completed.
We played Pin the Tail on Peter Rabbit! Hats are much easier than blindfolds around here.
Someone added a tail in just the right place after we were done. 🙂
I would have liked to have started some seeds to go along with this but it’s just the wrong time of year here. We made sure to read our Peter Rabbit stories before we went to the show and I am so glad we did, the performance was very true to the books.
After the show we watched some great youtube videos of the books.
There are more videos for the other stories too. And now for a free download! A copy of the Pin the Tail on Peter Rabbit page, and some cutting strips that I made but forgot to use. 🙂

There are many free goodies on Homeschool Share. The Peter Rabbit website also has many great teaching resources. And don’t forget the Simple Schooling unit study and the Garden Preschool Pack from Homeschool Creations!
