We are huge fans of Roald Dahl here, my boys love his stories. We often read them as a family, and we’ve just finished George’s Marvellous Medicine, which inspired our activity!

If you haven’t read the story then go and read it today, it’s such a good read and very funny! Your kids will love it, then come back and try out our activity.

We basically wanted to create ur own medicines like George (don’t worry I explained nobody would be trying out the finished product!)

I set out several ingredients along with a paper bottle so they could write down the ingredients their medicine would contain. This was a great way to practise their handwriting and spellings too! Then they set to work!
