Page Turner Adventures: Swamp Stories Week Feature

This week on Page Turner Animal Adventures we are making our way through the marshy mud for Swamp Stories.

Slip and slide into our Summer 2021: Reading Colors Your World challenge on Beanstack to view new adventures each weekday! You’ll find them all in the Activity Badges section.

We hope you have a splashing good time with Page Turner, Kenny, and their friends and special guests!

Show Day: Everglades Adventure

Panthers, and Alligators, and Manatees…oh, my! Kenny and Page must travel through the River of Grass to save the Once Upon a Time Machine. Will they make it in time!?

Craft Day: Snake Coils

Snake Coils Craft

Snakes? Why’d it have to be a craft about snakes?

Because they’re adorable and fun to make, that’s why! Create your very own coiling, cute snakes with paper, some paint or markers, glue, and googly eyes.
