This year marks the 10th anniversary of the classic book How to Catch a Star by Oliver Jeffers. This was Oliver Jeffers’ first picture book and is a beautifully illustrated sweet story all about a little boy trying desperately to catch a star to keep as his very own.

If you are not already familiar with the book, look out for the full review coming up this week along with a giveaway for a special 10th anniversary edition of the book!

To celebrate 10 years of this lovely story, I have a collection of printable activity sheets to share with you all. These are all free to download and print as many times as you like.


The pack includes:

  • Spot the difference
  • 2 different mazes
  • Templates to make puppets
  • Dot to dot
  • Make a mobile (2 sheets)
  • Colouring in

My boys have been enjoying the book and doing the activity sheets which has given them more opportunity to talk about the story.
