A Story Cafe | How to Catch a Star

Today's story was How to Catch a Star by Oliver Jeffers

As families arrived found lots of black, sparkly, glittery playdough, foil stars and star-shaped pastry cutters.  The picture speaks for itself...

We read the story together.  Story props included:

boy puppet, seagull puppet, tree puppet, space rocket puppet, star puppet, sandwich and juice box (the boy's lunch), sandpaper star (the starfish)

This is a brilliant story to tell with just the props, no book needed really, but Oliver Jeffers' illustrations are so beautiful that you have to share them.

Families had some time to spend together making story props to take home.  Here's some of what we made:

We finished off the workshop with a snack and a drink, and all five verses of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.

If you enjoyed How to Catch a Star, why not try Oliver Jeffers other brilliant picture books, Stuck, Lost and Found, The Way Back Home and The Day the Crayons Quit (there are more, see his website if you are interested here)
