Write a Story and Win a Family Trip to Dubai

While many of us spent our childhood holidays rock-pooling on Britain’s beautiful home-grown beaches, new research from the Emirates airline reveals that over half of today’s British kids have flown long-haul before their fourth birthday.

Sarah’s Top Tips for Illustrating Children’s Stories  

  • Focus on making your main character look awesome, but think about keeping it fairly simple because if you make a whole book, you’ll be drawing that character over and over again.
  • Think about setting: are you going to draw your character in a forest? At the beach? In space? 
  • Add extra details: your character might have a plaster on its head, a moustache, attract a swarm of flies, or be holding a magazine. Often it’s these little details that will make a picture funny or interesting.
  • The colours you choose can set a mood for your picture: a blue background can suggest night-time, sadness, or cold. A yellow or orange background might look joyful, hot or full of energy.  
  • Don’t worry about making things perfect: We all need to make lots of bad drawings before we learn to make better ones. Try your hardest, but then be kind to your artwork.
