Melbourne Cup Activities & Horsey stuff

Tomorrow is the Melbourne Cup in Australia (it's a big horse race incase you have no idea what I am talking about). 

This is a HUGE day here {we don't get the public holiday- we had ours last week for our own local Cup}- we have dress up's at school, class sweeps & we all watch the race together at 3pm. The kids love it and it is a school tradition. But 240 kids + teachers in one room cheering and it makes for a mighty LOUD 15 minutes.

Here are a few free activities if you are lucky enough to be working tomorrow & are planning to join the craziness :)

Horse Collage & Race Day Hat from Zart Art
I am a huge Zart Art fan. If you are in Australia check them out. Their PD's are great {particularly their Bookweek one}.

Reading Comprehension Activity for grade 3+

Number puzzle from Mel at Frog Spot

Writing Template from Stef at Miss Galvin Learns

Horse mask

Race Day photo booth props/masks from Pretty and Print

Colouring pages & more from Hello Kids

Horse Toilet Paper Roll craft from DLTK

Plastic Egg Cup Jockey's from Craft E Magee
I so want to make these! And I have a ton of packets of plastic eggs... Mmm...

And if you are betting tomorrow good luck!
