Blue Cow


This animated tale will help to develop your child’s language and literacy skills as they carefully watch and listen to the story and follow the instructions when prompted. Watching it together is a great way of encouraging your child to enjoy books and the whole process of storytelling. The activity is also a fun way for your child to find out more about the world around them - and it is great for stimulating their imagination as they find out what Blue Cow got up to in a playground.

How to extend the magic

Ask your child what they liked most about the story? Perhaps it was Blue Cow landing in a heap at the bottom of the slide or maybe it was when Blue Cow gave alll the children a lift on her back? Ask your child what their favourite piece of play equipment is at the playground. Why is it their favourite? Have a giggle together by sitting on the floor and pretending to slide your child down your legs - or you could hold your child in your arms and move round in circles as if you're on a merry-go-round!
