10 Swallows and Amazons crafts for kids

As we were coming back from the theatre last night my 4 year old spotted a poster for the new Swallows and Amazons film which is out today. You may remember we were lucky to attend the preview last month and the film obviously made a big impression on her as she wants to see it again.

I couldn’t resist looking for Swallows and Amazons crafts. We’ve already made a few ourselves but here are 10 Swallows and Amazons inspired crafts for fans of the book or film – make sure you try and see it!

    Craft looks fun. I read all the books as a child but I can’t imagine my boys being interested. I’ll get them to see trailer first before committing to the film
