Ruby the Copycat {Book Summary + Copycat activity}

The Book: Ruby the Copycat by Peggy Rathmann. A book about Ruby, the new girl in class who just want to fit she becomes a copycat. Things don’t work out quite as she expected and Ruby learns the importance of being true to who you are.

The Activity: Copycat!
  • Start by grabbing a baking sheet or round cake pan and adding some flour to it.
  • Make a few cards with letters, numbers, words or shapes you want your child to COPY.
  • Show your child one card at a time and have them copy what is on the card using the flour. And then repeat!
  • To add some interest, write out a few actions on your cards to have them copy. (Bark like a dog, jump like a bunny, fly like a bird, etc.) Then let them make up their own unique drawings in the flour or actions for you to try!
