World Book Day with BEAR and Puffin

Here at BEAR & Puffin’s Big Book Club we are so excited to celebrate World Book Day this year on Thursday 1st March. To help your cubs bring to life their favourite book characters we’ve produced these really handy costume templates. All you need is some old card (an empty BEAR Alphabites cereal box would be ideal), a pair of scissors, some colouring pens or pencils, some sticky tape and string and you will have a BEAR-illiant costume ready in no time!

Please see below to download the book themed activity sheets, pick your favourite character and get crafting!

Don’t forget to show us your photos of your cubs all dressed up (tag @bearnibbles and @PuffinBooks using #WorldBookDay) and look out for pawsome competitions on Facebook too! To find out more about World Book Day pop over to the official website here.
