In Elmer’s Walk, Elmer takes his time to appreciate the world around him while all
the other animals are rushing about.
Take your own walk around your home or garden and observe all the things around you.
What can you see?
What can you hear?
What can you smell?
How do these things make you feel?
Look for things that match each of Elmer’s colours and draw them in
After your walk try one of these creative activities inspired
by the things you saw on your walk:
- Write a poem about one of the things you saw on your walk.
- Paint or draw one of these things in more detail.
- Write a story inspired by one of these things you saw on your walk.
