What are activity packs and why do I need them?
Teaching resources and activity sheets based on your books are fantastic for building a relationship with schools, libraries, parents and little readers. They're also an excellent way of driving traffic to your website. You can print them out for use at readings, signings, launches and other events, and pop them in with your online orders. They can be composed of simple puzzles, crafts and colouring pages as well as teaching notes. Authors tend to share them as a downloadable pdf on their website. The individual pages can also be shared as social media posts. Below are a few pages from a pack I created for Irish author Dolores Keaveney. Get in touch if you'd like Purple Crayon to put together bespoke resources based on your books; a six-page pack costs €99.
