Roald Dahl activities at home

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory writing activity

Children can practise their writing skills while having lots of fun with these Roald Dahl-themed challenges. They are each linked to a room or space at home to help your child think creatively about what is around them.

What you’ll need:

  • Pen/pencil
  • Paper
  • Activities on pages below (which can either be printed out or viewed on a mobile phone or computer)
  • Optional: coloured pencils

Don’t worry if you haven’t read the books!

Knowing the story is helpful when completing these challenges, but your child can take part even if they haven’t read the books.
