Welcome to our HARK! Are you:

  • Stuck at home?
  • On the lookout for ideas; a spark that inspires you to explore a new skill, or be creative?
  • Craving a Swallows and Amazons-themed brain teaser (or two)?

If so, these activity sheets may be just what you need. Try a new skill, such as surveying your bedroom or designing your coat of arms. Be creative with words or drawings. Or test your observational skills with a word search or picture puzzle. You don’t need to have read the Swallows and Amazons books to try these activities and challenges, although in a few cases it may help. You’ll find answers for the puzzles at the bottom of the page.

Parents and teachers may also like to try LitWits’ “Swallows and Amazons Home Learning and Activities Kit”, which they are generously making available free of charge. Go to LitWits, navigate to “Swallows and Amazons”, and enter the Coupon code RANSOME4FREE in their checkout.
