This is a good gloomy-day activity, especially when it's getting dark earlier: shadow puppets. There is a printable template here for these super-lovely polar bear and musk-ox puppets by Orange Moon Toys.
We're going to make them this afternoon, so I'll see if I can do a better image, but for now this is via Martha Stewart vis pinterest. You could do a version of the Donkey in the Lion's Skin (see below) by Aesop — the Muskox in the Polar Bear Skin?
If you prefer to buy some pre made puppets (no shame in that) then you can find some gorgeous ones here.
Also this week: Aesop's Fables as told by Mitsumasa Anno and non-stop nature walks.
