As part of our home education we celebrated Roald Dahl Day with friends.  There are so many ideas online for inspiration to celebrate Roald Dahl Day and we chose quiz’s, baking and dream catcher jars before settling down with a movie.

We enjoy reading Roald Dahl books and chose the BFG movie to watch after all our activities.

I printed a few activity sheets direct from the Roald Dahl website for all the kids to do and we started our activities by making dream jars.  All the kids loved making these simple dream catcher jars.

We mixed food colouring with water, and layered the jars with cotton wool, the coloured water and lots of glitter and stars.

We also made chocolate crispy cakes using white chocolate and purple and blue food colouring paste as part of our own Willy Wonker experience.

In true Willy Wonker chocolate style these coloured crispy cakes were tasty.

And our last baking mess of food colouring overdose was BFG inspired cupcakes which were green with galaxy blue and purple icing which were of course topped with sprinkles.  It was a creation of colour!

We really enjoyed celebrating Roald Dahl Day.  Just a small gesture to celebrate a fabulous authors birthday.

Hopefully you enjoyed reading our celebrations and perhaps have taken some inspiration for your own activities to help celebrate Roald Dahl Day for yourselves.

Feel free to share your ideas too 🙂
