15 Fun Ideas For Charlotte’s Web

15 Fun Ideas For Charlotte’s Web

Simon and I recently finished reading Charlotte’s Web together (meaning I read a bit of it to him every night before bed). We both really enjoyed it. My older kids also read it to themselves when they were younger, and I’m sure I read it in the past, but this time I was able to pause and appreciate the descriptive language and story of friendship in the book. I was also impressed when Simon asked me what certain words meant – similar to how Wilbur asks Charlotte about words she uses that he doesn’t understand! While I obviously recommend the book, I thought I would also write a wrap up of ideas of activities that can go along with reading Charlotte’s Web.
