Welcome to The Book Tree’s Create space. 

This is where we use books as springboards for creativity and having fun! We explore ways we can encourage children to express their creative skills in a variety of mediums, from making art works to creative writing and creative thinking. We also have a few resources which we’ve created or linked to.  Feel free to share them, please just credit The Book Tree or the source we use.

We Heart Art

ART is the best way to flex creative skills.  We like to highlight art classes run by inspired teachers and we invite artists to share their creative exercises to get children creating.
