Free Bluey Teaching Activities and Curriculum Resources

Cool Australia has partnered with Ludo Studio to create a range of Bluey educational resources. Hooray!

We’re bringing Early Learning and Primary educators, a range of FREE fun-filled resources we know kids will eat up, just like a stick of magic asparagus.

Each resource showcases an episode from Bluey and contains all the instructional information, curriculum mapping and teaching strategies needed to bring Bluey to life at home or in the classroom.

About the Resources

Bluey uses her imagination to turn everyday moments into fun adventures, full of play, learning and social interaction! The same philosophy is demonstrated in each resource, encouraging kids to role-play whilst developing their mental and emotional resilience. The resources use a values framework to develop kids’ social and emotional learning.

Educators and parents/caregivers will find a wealth of information to support them to understand the research behind evidence-based teaching strategies and key early developmental stages. The resources provide instructions to facilitate experiential activities and socio-dramatic play.

“Socio dramatic play is the pinnacle of play and drives the heart of the show. This type of play sees kids working at their highest level of imagination, cooperation and group interaction.” – JOE BRUMM, Bluey Creator
