Roald Dahl Day 2018
Happy Roald Dahl Day! In our home, we are big Roahl Dahl lovers, specifically The BFG and Charlie and the Chocolate factory books/movies! When I found out that there was an entire day dedicated to our favourite author, I knew we had to take part! Today we are going to share with you all the ways we are going to celebrate!
Of course we have to read through one of my personal faves- The BFG. I absolutely loved this book as a child and was thrilled when little man fell in love with it too! I love the sweet love story of the giant and Sophie about friendship. Plus those goofy little words the giant uses are just too much fun!
As requested by my son, we are going to watch The BFG and if he has his way, Matilda too! We were absolutely thrilled when The BFG movie came out last year and were even more pleased when it stuck so true to the story line! For me, I just loved seeing those giants come to life!
We picked a couple of our favourite Roald Dahl quotes and designed a couple bookmarks to print out and make. You can download them in the link below. We punched holes in the top and threaded a ribbon through so they stick out of the book a bit! Roald Dahl had a wild imagination and there were so many fun quotes to choose from so we hope you love the ones we picked!
If you have a peek at the Roald Dahl website, you can see even more crafts to go along with today! We may even try a trick or two from the Mischief and Mayhem book, which is hilarious by the way! You have got to get this for your kiddos, just watch out for all the random tricks!
If you really want to get to know the man behind these incredible books, check out the interview he did in 1988. It gives you a really cool insight on how he wrote his books and imagination! Did you read any Roald Dahl books as a child? They are so fun and silly, we would love to know which one is your fave!
