Level 39 Comic-O-Rama (New)

What makes a great comic? A hero. An origin story. A problem…a big problem! In this workshop, you will decide your hero’s superpower, secret identity and weakness. You will figure out the how, what, where and why of their origin. And the disaster that they save us all from. Use our cool stencils to give your comic book some graphic oomph!


Level 73 Magipocalypse (New)

Life is great in the sorcerous worlds of level 73: learning spells, mastering your magic wand, breaking the fundamental rules of magic…wait! That last one unleashed utter chaos. It’s up to you to find the magical ingredients needed to make the world right again! Bring your enchanted adventure together in a comic book. (This workshop is the perfect place to try out the comic-making skills of the Comic-O-Rama workshop.)


Level 22 All A-Board! (New)

Every game tells a story, whether it’s an exciting tale of racing against monsters or the first person to collect treasure from an ancient shipwreck! Turn a bored-game into a board game by adding your own story and rules with the help of our resident pro game designer, Ben McKenzie, in this brand new workshop.


Level 32 The Hero That Went That Way

Here’s your chance to write a story where your reader gets to decide what happens, a choose-your-own-adventure. You get to create the good endings and bad endings your reader can choose from. Make your very own many-ended tale!


Level 24 Spacecraft

Calling intrepid space rangers! The ‘100SB Intergalactic Space Federation’ has bought a whole new galaxy and we need you to explore the planets in it. Your mission: discover your own planet, name it and create a diorama of all the strange, wonderful, mysterious flora and fauna that inhabit it.

Just be careful, terrible things could happen there! Return to Planet Earth with your diorama, drawings and tales of amazing rescues.


Level 79 Post An Escape (NEW)

Does your child LOVE making stories? Our resident Pigeon Post editor, the irascible P.Jons, has thrown us a challenge – give them a fabulous story on the theme ‘ESCAPE’. Bring your story-making brain to this workshop, we’ll help the ideas ‘escape’ and return home as a fully-crafted story. If it catches P.Jons’ eye, it might even end up in the next Pigeon Post,  our quarterly publication of stories BY children. It is stocked at Readings Kids bookshop.


Level 68 Perilous Quest

In this workshop, you set off on a quest – a journey fraught with obstacles and, sometimes, a little bit of danger. Don’t worry though, all our heroes embark on their quests with a Hero’s Backpack, filled with objects that may prove useful in a tricky spot. You will create a map of a strange land, profile your hero and his/her nemesis, fill your hero’s Backpack, then set off on an adventure story!
