This lapbook can be used with any Mrs. Wishy-Washy book, but it was designed to go with these three:
When my son and I used this lapbook, we only had Mrs. Wishy-Washy’s Farm, and it worked out just fine.
Thanks to Robin Diedrichs for creating this Mrs. Wishy-Washy lapbook for Homeschool Share.

Mrs. Wishy-Washy Additional Activities
Wash the Farm Animals
Use stuffed animals of a pig, duck, and cow and act out the story of Mrs. Wishy-Washy. Use an old washtub or pot (or even just a plastic bucket) and a scrub brush. Mrs. Wishy-Washy and Wishy-Washy Day are perfect for reenacting because of the simple storyline.
Make mud in a large plastic container and provide your child with the pans, spoons, plastic knifes to delight himself in a morning of mud pie making. Every child needs to experience this at least once in his life.
Get out some bubbles and have fun!
Hide & Seek
Play “Hide & Seek” to complement Wishy-Washy Day. You could play with your children the traditional game where you take turns hiding and finding each other. You could also have your child pretend to be Mrs. Wishy-Washy. Help him/her say, “It’s wishy-washy day. Into the tub for a scrub you go.”
