We wanted to give you a helping hand though, with The Around the World in Ten Books Challenge. We even have a free download for you to print out and use, or you could make your own.
The challenge is simple, the children need to collect ten stamps in their passport from around the world. These can’t just be any books, where is the fun in that? Oh no, they must find a book that matches the subject on one of our covers dotted around the treasure map. So, if they choose ‘animals’ their book needs to feature animals as the main topic. This could be the characters, set on a farm or a book about visiting the zoo. We can think of a few!
Once they have collected all ten stamps, not only will they have explored ten different worlds and been on ten exciting adventures, the will receive the key to unlock the treasure chest!
Now the treasure chest contents are entirely up to you. They could be rewarded with a new book or book voucher. Perhaps a sweet treat could be in order, or a fun trip to the library. Whatever you decide to ‘put in’ the treasure chest, it gives those eager young minds a goal to work towards.
You can download The Around the World in Ten Books Challenge sheet here, or on our Free Resources Page. Feel free to print it out and share this article with anyone you think has children that would enjoy taking part.
