World Book Day Activities
World Book Day, held on the first Thursday of March each year, changes lives through a love of books and shared reading. We’ve put together a variety of activities to enjoy at home or in school. Don’t forget to let us know how you’ll be celebrating!
Make a Book Bow Tie
One of the many fun things that we all love to do on World Book Day is dress up like a favourite character from a treasured book. But have you ever dressed up as an author before?
Dylan often wore a bow tie when performing, so for #WorldBookDay, we’ll be making our own bookish bow ties to wear when reading our favourite books. Want to join in?
Draw a picture of yourself with your favourite book
Dylan Thomas loved reading as well as writing! He enjoyed reading thrillers as well as poetry. What is your favourite book? Draw a picture of yourself with it!

Book Scavenger Hunt
Use the books on your bookshelves to find each item on the scavenger list.
