Children's Art Week Ambassador and UK Children's Laureate Lauren Child launched a fantastic resource which she created with Josie Scullard - six activity sheets to encourge creativity, all inspired by their favourite children's books.

From making your own book to a 3D world, there's a creative idea to suit every child and classroom - click here to get inspired!

About Children's Art Week

Children's Art Week is a UK-wide programme run by Engage, the National Association for Gallery Education.

Every year Engage invites schools, galleries, museums and community groups to devise and register visual arts events for children and families over a week in June. These activities give children and young people, together with their teachers, parents and carers – the opportunity to get involved with a very broad range of practical art activities with artists and makers.

Organisers receive support from Engage to devise, run and publicise their events. Through evaluation Engage has learned that Children’s Art Week is a valuable opportunity for venues to reach out to new visitors and take part in a national event.
