This is part 2 of 6 in our summer long superhero summer reading adventure series! Each week, I will be sharing weekly activities based on a super read-aloud title. This is the perfect project if you are looking for hands-on ideas to do with the kids that are connected to great books. The suggestions will fit perfectly with those who will also be participating in a local library reading program with the same theme. Today, it all about Superworm! Have a super fun time with these Superworm activities.
Each Friday, check back for a new book and list of activities that you can do with your kids this summer. The ideas will work great for the 3-8 year-old crowd.
Superworm Book and Activities
Full Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.
Superworm is the story of an extraordinary worm that always lends a hand and adapts to different kinds of situations. When he is captured by a wicked Wizard Lizard, the other wiggly creatures devise a plan to rescue him. Spiders use their special spinning web skills. The bees help to create a sticky situation and all the flying bugs help to deliver the wicked master right to the rubbage pile. When Superworm is freed he returns to being the great worm all the animals know and love.
Enjoy reading the book several times during the week!
Try these fun and playful activities throughout the week to build and reinforce skills.
Beginning Sounds Worm
Create this super long puppet worm. He only likes to eat things that begin with the same sound!
Make a Wormery
Rainy Day Mum shows us how to make a wormery so that we can observe what worms do. A neat way to see how worms tunnel through the ground and the important role they play in our environment.
Observe a Worm
A very simple but educational way to explore worms is to sit on the ground and observe. My boys found this worm crossing the sidewalk. They watched him as he “played” with the ant. The kids could even make a journal to record drawings and observations of the worms that they find.
Wiggly Worm Painting
P is for Preschooler shares a fun way to paint using “wiggly worms”. I love that it is an open invitation to create.
Have some more science fun with this dancing worm idea from Playdough to Plato.
Set up a worm playdough station for the kids to explore from Fantastic Fun and Learning.
Frozen Dirt Square Dessert
On a warm summer day, cool off with this frozen dirt square dessert from This Silly Girl’s Life. It is a fun cooking activity to do with the kids.
Join us next week for our superhero summer reading series book- Super Duck!
