Jackanory Junior - Character Maker

Have fun creating your own characters to use in the Jackanory games


This game develops your child's artistic and imaginative skills as they create their own characters which can be used throughout the Jackanory Junior games. Your child can choose each character's face, body and feet from a selection on offer - and have fun with different combinations. Once your child has named their characters, it's time to print out their lovely creations and collect a reward.

How to extend the fun

Print and cut out your child's characters. See if your child can act out a little scene involving one or more of their characters. You could help your child with this. Perhaps you could hold up the cut-out characters and pretend to have a conversation with them. See where this role play takes you - you might find yourselves going on a wonderful imaginary adventure together!

How to make a magic moment

Play the Character Maker game together at your computer - take it in turns to come up with the craziest-looking characters with the silliest names!
