Make Stories Like Roald Dahl

Looking for something buckswashlingly brilliant for your kids to do in the summer holidays? Why not complete the weekly online challenges to bring out their inner storyteller!

Roald's creative tricks

They’ll learn about Roald’s writing tricks and creative techniques, find out some fascinating facts about the stories and take part in some awesome activities designed to take their storytelling into orbit - just like the Great Glass Elevator!

Who's it for?

Perfect for budding authors aged 5 to 12, those with oodles of imagination and those who have yet to discover their creative powers. Your kids will end the summer with lots of new story-making skills including the ability to imagine a brilliant plot, to think up the most wonderful characters, and ideas on how to turn their summer adventures into writing gold.
