Free during Lockdown: Leigh Hobbs's Kids Short Films with Drawing and Other Activities @


Children’s author, artist and former Children’s Laureate Leigh Hobbs has just released a series of short films which he hopes will help teachers scrambling for activity ideas during lockdown.

These films (5 x 2-5 mins) are designed for teachers, families and kids of any age, anywhere around the world.

They can be watched just for fun, or used in classroom settings as springboards for activity (draw your own Leigh Hobbs character) and follow-up discussion (around identity, acceptance and creativity).

Have fun 😄

    Seems most kids authors love a really creepy illustration style!

      If you ask kids, these characters are not creepy at all.

      • My kids are horrified and they play with pet spiders!

  • Ohh I remember when Leigh came to my school and gave us a talk, what a throwback.

  • Wow!
    What a huge resemblance to Larry David : )
