Peter Rabbit Book Play

This recipe was inspired by Beatrix Potter's The Tale of Peter Rabbit. Want to play with Peter some more? Check out our other Peter Rabbit activities here


Act It Out

Read the story again and invite your little one to act out Peter’s adventure:

  • Run to Mr. McGregor’s garden then squeeeeeeze under the gate. 
  • Nibble on French beans and lettuces, then rush all over the garden looking for the gate. 
  • Keep going until Peter has been put to bed. Maybe this will become a new way to get your little reader to bed at night? Enjoy!


 The Land of Beatrix Potter

Beatrix Potter drew inspiration for her books from her home, Hill Top Farm, and the surrounding countryside in the Lake District of England.  On the World of Beatrix Potter site, you can see photos of the area where she lived, farmed, sketched and painted.

Get out your globe or map and show your young reader how to find England, the inspiration and setting of Peter Rabit.  Identify where you live as well and where England is in relation to your home.

2012 marked the 110th publication anniversary of the first of Potter's "little books." For online games, coloring pages and more, visit the official Peter Rabbit website!
