1st set of free activity sheets from authors and illustrators – Summer 2012

It’s always handy to have a few activity sheets up one’s metaphorical sleeve when it comes to the summer holidays and so once again I’ve sought out some great free resources created by children’s authors and illustrators for us all to enjoy.

Click on the relevant image or coloured link to be taken to activity sheets you can download.

Debi Gliori has created an entire fun pack you can download. It includes a wordsearch, a mask to make, colouring in and more.

Illustrator Claire Sells has two colouring-in sheets (a fairy, and some dinosaurs) for a quick and easy 5-minute activity.

Clara Vulliamy has enough crafty goodness on her website to keep you out of mischief the whole summer. Although of it was created for an advent calendar, not all of it is wintery themed (and those bits which are may be just right for friends in the Southern Hemisphere right now). I particularly like the Bunny Rocket and the bear thaumatrope.

Finally for today, on the Puffin website there are oodles and doodles of activities for you to print off and play with. Eric Carle, Cathy Cassidy, Charlie and Lola, Roald Dahl, Jeremy Strong and The Worst Witch all feature.

I hope you have fun with some of these! And should you want even more activity sheets do take a look through those I’ve linked to in the past.

      Welcome back Mrs Brown! This is the first of 3 round ups of activities sheets I have planned for the summer hols, so hopefully there will be something for everyone. I’ve found my kids have enjoyed the sheets even if they don’t know the illustrator.
