Playing by the book

Reviews of kids' books and the crazy, fun stuff they inspire us to do

Free crafty activities from Quentin Blake and Andersen Press

Posted on | December 27, 2011 | No Comments

Aah… now today I’ve got some activity sheets that I think everyone will enjoy joining in with between finishing off turkey trimmings and visiting relatives.

First up is Quentin Blake. He doesn’t really need any introduction does he? I can’t imagine a UK childhood without at least some Quentin Blake. We have particularly soft spots for his Let’s Join In and Angelica Sprocket’s Pockets.

Perfect for writing thank-you letters on, Blake offers up some lovely writing paper with one of his drawings on. Did you receive any books for Christmas (I hope so!) – then why not use these lovely bookplates to personalise them? And then when you start reading your books you can mark your place with a magic pencil bookmark.

Andersen Press has heaps and heaps of activity sheets to print off and have fun with. There are doorhangers to colour in and cut out, wordsearches, puzzles, characters to decorate, instructions for making binoulars and pom poms, and also masks! There are projects from many of the illustrators represented by Andersen Press, including David Lucas, David McKee and Chris Judge.
