Have an adventure-packed summer holiday with the Famous Five


‘“I do love the beginning of the summer hols,” said Julian.
“They always seem to stretch out ahead for ages and ages”’

Five Go Off in a Caravan

The summer holidays are a magical time. There’s so much fun to be had, so many ways to spend those precious hours and days: from picnics to swimming in the sea; exploring ruins or cool shady woods; or simply finding somewhere lovely outdoors to settle down with a good story.
When we think of the summer, we can’t help but picture the Famous Five and all their exciting adventures. We could all be a little more like George, Anne, Dick, Julian and Timmy, don’t you think? Who better to inspire children (and their friends and families) to have fun outdoors.
That’s why we’ve teamed up with Professor Scrubbington’s to create a list of 31 Famous Five inspired activities to try in August. That’s one for every day of the month! You can download our free poster here. Tick them off as you go and see how many you can do.
We’d love to hear all about your Famous Five adventures. Share your pictures and stories on Twitter and Instagram with #MyBlytonSummer
(You’ll find us at @BlytonOfficial and @ProfScrub on Twitter and @BlytonOfficial and @Professorscrubbington on Instagram.)
So, have as much fun as you possibly can. And don’t worry about getting mucky! Professor Scrubbington’s Magically Foaming range of bath-time products for children can scrub you clean at the end of the day!
