Have you found yourself in the position of suddenly having your children at home and away from school/daycare? Feeling a bit lost? Sitting them down in front of episodes of Bluey while you attempt to work from home/keep the house in order/figure out what is going on in the world???
You are not alone! (Even if you are hunkering down and avoiding unnecessary human contact.) These are stressful, confusing times and we could all use a bit of grounding. Whether you’re temporarily homeschooling or just trying to find some ways to keep the kids from climbing up the walls, I’m putting together a unique “curriculum” inspired by everyone’s favourite kids show: BLUEY!
First… a bunch of boring disclaimers:
- These are not formal lesson plans and may not tie into whatever curriculum your child’s school is currently teaching. Rather, these are thematic activities and play prompts meant to inspire.
- You can absolutely adapt these to suit your child(ren)’s age, interests and resources. Consider them jumping-off points to give a bit of structure to your days.
- I acknowledge these may not work for everyone – you may not have access to nature, access to art supplies, these may not support children with unique learning challenges, may not be suited to all abilities. Again, feel free to adapt and use as it suits your family.
- Please don’t come after me, ABC! I obviously don’t hold any claim or copyright of the Bluey characters or brand. My kids and I simply adore the show. I make approximately $0 off this website. I’m just trying to do a small bit to help fellow parents during a challenging time.
Ok, now for the fun stuff!!

That brings us to 43 episodes and my daughter is now back at school so I’ll try to write up seven more to complete the series that I’ll be publishing on an ad hoc basis.
