DONKEY HODIE ACTIVITIES AND GAMES

Donkey's FroYo Stand

Donkey Hodie is serving frozen yogurt treats to her pals, and she needs help! In this game, children follow steps to complete customers’ orders. As they play, children practice following a plan and are encouraged to be persistent if things don’t go quite as planned. In the classroom, teachers and students can discuss following a plan, listening and trying again after making a mistake.
(PreK-K) 
 

The Waiting Game

Harriett Elizabeth Cow made a present for Donkey, Purple Panda, Duck Duck, and Bob Dog. It’s wrapped in a giant box, and Donkey can’t wait to open it! Harriett tells her it’s for all four pals, so Donkey must wait until everyone arrives before opening it. Wait?! That’s very hard for Donkey, but she uses her imagination to help pass the time.

You Can Do It!

Purple Panda faces his fears with the support of his best pal, Donkey Hodie. Like many young children often do, Purple Panda experiences fear and anxiety when he feels alone while trying something new. Having a photo nearby can remind young children that even when they can’t see special grownups during school, they are always cheering them on.
