5. Pen and ink art

Take a look at these tutorials for using pen for effective art techniques –  learn how to hatch, cross hatch, use random lines and stippling   24 easy doodle patterns – the virtual instructor   Shoo Rayner

Now use what you have learnt to recreate a scene or several scenes from the Stig of  the Dump story  - you could even make a comic strip using these techniques just using pen.

6. Stig’s Den

Read the descriptions of Stig’s den and build a den of your own (if you have space / garden) using recycled materials, or a model den.  You might be able to make a gadget out of odds and ends like Stig does – e.g. his gadget for catching rainwater or his stove-pipe.   (remember to check with adults that it is okay to use things you have at home). You could take photos of the building process or the final result.  You could write a short summary of how you built your den…
