Inspiring Creativity

Each creative activity card includes at least 4 ideas, for example:

  • Creating a poem or song inspired by the themes, language or characters in the book, and some steps to get you started.
  • Suggestions for creating art with found objects – you might make a lion from autumn leaves that you’ve collected
  • A recipe for a fantastic feast featured in the story, so you can enjoy your own edible treats alongside the characters
  • Ideas to prompt your inner actor or playwright to imagine what happens next after you close the story book

– the list is endless, it all depends on what creative connections the book itself sparks!

You don’t need any special art supplies or equipment to take part in the activities – just your amazing brain and regular things you’d find at home, such as pens, crayons, paper and glue.
