Shakespeare for Kids

To Be Or Not To Be, That Is The Question………

Well for us it was to be because I found a fabulous set of books to introduce Shakespeare to my eldest twins. The Shakespeare Stories is a box set of 16 books that is around £65 for the set but you can buy them for a fraction of that price on Amazon, Book People, eBay etc.  The Amazon link is below but shop around for the best price.

Activities

My eldest had a stab at writing their own short Shakespearean plays.  Twinbo 1 wrote in Shakespearean style in the form of a short play script whereas Twinbo 2 opted for a story including some of Shakespeare’s characters from a number of different plays all meeting together in the same story. You could try filming your own play or simply acting it out.
