The Old Lady Who Swallowed a Chick Activities

Well my recent posts where I shared activities to go along with There Was An old Lady Who Swallowed a Clover were some of my most popular posts in the past 6 months that I have been blogging (go HERE to check them out)! I have received a lot of positive feed back about them in comments and emails and wanted to thank you all by giving you some freebies a little early this week! (Ok, that and the fact that I have not had a chance to get on the computer since last Tuesday to blog so I needed something simple to post while my kids were napping! HA!)

Now that St. Patrick’s day is over…we are now focusing on Easter Activities! If you didn’t see my post yesterday, I posted a cute and CHEAP game you can make yourself called Bunnies in the Grass (for only $2!!). Today I am going to share some activities to go with There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Chick!

Because they were so popular with the Clover Book, I went ahead and made you all a barrier game and a story telling necklace to go along with this fun book. I plan on using these activities with both my daughter (who LOVED the story telling necklace with the Clover book!) and with my clients in the next couple weeks. In fact, one of my little guys is working on final /k/ right now so this book would be great! (All images purchased from Scrappin Doodles)








The barrier game actually can be used without the Chick Book. I included many different images (including bushes, trees, and a few different Easter Eggs) so that it can be used just as an Easter Activity! You can grab your own copy of the barrier game (directions included) HERE.

You can also grab your own copy of the story telling necklace (directions included) HERE.

I have some other Easter Activities planned to share with you soon! And be sure to check in Friday for another activity to go along with the Chick Book!

What books are you reading with your children or students the next couple weeks? I’d love to hear! After  Easter we are going to start celebrating Spring with some insect and flower books!
