Charlie & The Chocolate Factory is probably the most well-known book by Roald Dahl. Have some edible fun inspired by Willy Wonka – make your own Wonka bar or lickable wallpaper!
2. The BFG
Watch the film, create a dream jar or compile a list of the many invented words found in the book.
3. George’s Marvellous Medicine
Have some natural science fun by making your own medicine!
4. The Twits
Bake a pie or do some yoga. Whatever you do, make sure it’s horrible!
