Julia Donaldson’s Room on the Broom is this week’s Virtual Book Club for Kids pick. My kids enjoyed the book, and we watched the animated movie as well.
I love the out of the box way the witch in the story uses her cauldron and broom in this story. I used that part of the story to inspire this fun creative drawing and writing activity that all four of my children (aged 5, 8, 9, and 11 years old) enjoyed. You can download the PDF below.
Broom and Cauldron Drawing Activity for Room on the Broom
I enjoyed seeing the different ways my kids approached this creative activity. Five-year-old Anna simply colored and decorated the pages, ignoring the prompt. The older kids really jumped in – proof that picture books and picture book activities are not only for littles. Nine-year-old Johnny decided on an invisibility potion; eleven-year-old Emma kept her options open with a magic wish grant potion.
The three older kids got really into decorating their brooms! I love that nine-year-old Johnny’s broom includes a baby sea turtle cage. Eight-year-old Lily’s broom comes with a unicorn bed. Pragmatic eleven-year-old Emma again kept her options open with a pets area, but included a kitchen since she loves to cook.
Five-year-old Anna ignored my prompt, but delivered this beautiful illustration of the story:
