How to Make World Book Day 2013 One to Remember Comments Off on How to Make World Book Day 2013 One to Remember

Posted on March 01, 2013 by admin

It might only be a week or so away, but there’s a chance that many of you lovers of literature won’t know that Thursday March 7th is World Book Day. It’s a great event where adults and kids celebrate their favourite reads by paying homage to famous fictional characters and authors in their own imaginative ways.

If you want to get the kids involved in this year’s World Book Day, there are a number of great things you could do with them to help them celebrate all that’s fun and exciting about getting lost in a good book. Here are just a few ideas if you’re struggling for inspiration:

Dress up like your favourite character

Most kids will have their favourites. Some will want to dress like Harry Potter (above) and cast a spell, while others might want to go back further in time and come as a Shakespearean character like Juliet. As well as being fun, they could maybe quote their favourite lines to help really get into the day in their World Book Day costumes.

Read a story for the little ones

If you have kids who are, say, five or six years old, this is a great idea. Read from a book you enjoyed as a child using different voices for each character and watch them listen. You could even lay on a few snacks for the kids and their friends and make a day of it!

Play a game based on their favourite book

Some kids’ books such as the ‘Where’s Wally’ series are ideal for games. Why not play a game where you can see which one of your kids or their friends can find him the quickest – you could have hours of fun. Alternatively, you could get one of your kids to dress like Wally and play ‘hide and seek’, bringing the book to life!
