Today is World Book Day, the day the nation celebrates a love of reading and shares stories together. Although we are not in school, here are some activities for you to enjoy at home with your families.
Share a Story
Can you find someone to share a story with today? Video call a relative or friend and read to them, read a story to a sibling or even your teddies. Let us know who you decide to share your story with!
Make your Favourite Book Characters
For a fun, creative and cheap activity, why not transform a potato or wooden spoon into your favourite book character? Looking for a magical way to reuse a shoebox or jam jar? Try making a Harry Potter scene in a box or A Very Hungry Caterpillar in a jar. From Stickman to Paddington, classics to more recent releases, here are a few pictures to give you inspiration.
Click on the videos below to find out how to draw some much loved book characters such as Kevin the Koala and Oi Frog. These are delivered by their illustrator Jim Field.
