World Book Day activities to do at home

Everyone loves dressing up for World Book Day but what happens when you get home from school? We've got six activity ideas to get your child engaging with their favourite book at home on World Book Day.

1. Act out their favourite story

Make the most of the kids still being in costume! Encourage them to read their favourite book aloud and act out their character's part, thinking about body language and emotion in the story. 

2. Review their favourite book

Download this book review template and get your child thinking about all the aspects of their favourite story – the characters, the meaning, and why they enjoy it so much.

3. Write an alternative ending to their favourite story

If your child has read their favourite book over and over, they might find it fun to reinvent the story and think about what might have happened if events had taken a different route. Encourage them to use their imaginations! 

4. Create a new character from their favourite book 

Children could draw all of the characters from a book and then think about somebody new to fit into the plot that will add another dimension to the story. Make sure the character has a name, a role and a back story. 

5.  Design a new book cover

If there was one book in the whole world that your child doesn't have but would like to read, what would it be? Ask your child to think of a title and then design the book's front cover.

6. Take the World Book Day Quiz

There are loads of activities on the official World Book Day website but we found a great book knowledge quiz that's suitable for KS1. Download it here.

Take a look at the official World Book Day website for more activity ideas.
