Kids’ Club May 2023

Welcome to another instalment of our Nosy Crow Kids’ Club: a monthly feature with lots of engaging activities for the young readers in your life! Each month we’ll post a creative writing prompt based on one of our recent publications, and some downloadable activity sheets for you to print for your little ones.

Write a Story

Our writing prompt this month takes inspiration from The Goat and the Stoat and the Boat by Em Lynas and Matt Hunt – a raucous, rhyming tale that will have children (and adults) in fits of laughter!


Pick two animals and one object that rhyme with one another.


For example, you could have The Dog and the Frog and the Clog, or The Bear and the Hare and the Pear – anything you like that rhymes!


Once you’ve picked one you like, write a story about the hilarious antics they get up to, taking inspiration from Em Lynas and Matt Hunt‘s books, The Goat and the Stoat and the Boat and The Cat and the Rat and the Hat


Try to make your story rhyme as much as you can – the funnier the better!

Share your kids’ creative writing with us on social media, by tagging us @NosyCrow! You never know, we might even share a selection on our channels …

Activity Sheets

Children can design their own sail, play spot the difference and match words in these free activity sheets for The Goat and the Stoat and the Boat! Download the resources here.


We hope you enjoyed the fifth instalment of our Nosy Crow Kids’ Club! Be sure to let us know if your little ones partake in our activities, and if there’s anything else you would like us to include, by getting in touch via email or social media.
