Activity Introduction

Quick summary: This activity is based on Bluey, Season 2, Daddy Dropoff. Kids explore the value of ‘responsibility’. They begin by watching the Bluey episode and sharing their observations about the episode. They then think about the routine tasks they need to complete every day and how these could be done in a way that makes them fun. Kids work with their parents to create a ‘box of tricks’ with fun ways to engage kids in routine tasks and take responsibility for these tasks. 

This is an official Bluey activity that celebrates the joy and curiosity of Bluey and allows kids to build social and emotional intelligence and develop oral language skills. Most of all it has been designed to inspire creativity and imagination in your kids!
