Bob and the Very Rainy Day

Bob decided that it was going to be one of those dumbtwiddling days. He looked out of his window in his home at the base of an ancient hollowed out oak tree, and all he could see was big wetty gobbley droppers pourling down and making hugelymungiously soggy puddly muddles on the ground. On dumbtwiddling days like this, he knew there was only one thing that you could do…
Bob reads a story and starts to dreamickle up his own to make him feel less miseryshiverable.

“Insecticles needs homes too,” says Bob. So we made them one.

Bob has been out in garden making an insect house for his bug friends. This is a simple and easy way to make a home for nature’s friends and should be cheap to make too! Resources can be found easily (or for free if you’re lucky) and shouldn’t take long to put together. Great activity for EYFS, KS1 or KS2

“Todays we mades an scarencrows. She dunt scare crows, but she do scare me,” says Bob.

Bob loves making things for the outdoors and in the great outdoors, so what’s better than a ‘scarencrow’ for your garden? A great activity for everyone, but especially children in the EYFS, KS1, KS2. All you need for a scarecrow is what you probably have at home. You have a spare head, haven’t you?

The Surprisingly Unlikely and (often) Unseasonal Story of How Bob Came to Be

Bob is one of my popular storytelling characters. He’s funny, overly fond of chocolate cake, a bit silly, but kind, friendly and he loves being outdoors making things. Here, Bob makes a scarecrow, an insect house, and Bob’s Brillinut Book!
