Bunny vs Monkey December 2021
At Chew Valley Library we held a Christmas Event based round the characters of Bunny and Monkey. This included drawing, table games and listening to the story The Real Santa from Bunny vs Monkey – The Human Invasion – Jamie Smart….naturally followed by a visit from Santa himself, who came bearing chocolate rather than whiffy eggs, to complete our event. It was a great fun filled, family afternoon.
Our session began with some colouring and drawing using the sheets provided and using illustrations from the books to draw the Bunny and Monkey characters. The children chose to be in Team Bunny or Team Monkey and wore the appropriate stickers.
