Winnie the Witch

What you need

  • Your listening ears
  • Black markers or paint and paper


Engagement in a story with the opportunity to join in with repeated refrains and anticipating key events and/or phrases.

The experience

Find a nice and cosy area in your home and listen to the lovely story of Winnie the Witch

Winnie the Witch lives in a black house with black furnishings. She also has a black cat, Wilbur, but the problem is she cannot see him amid all the blackness; not until she decides to use a little magic.

Now, can you imagine you are in a dark dark room, how would that make you feel?

Why not use your black markers or paint and paper to create a dark room painting?
