Shakespeare week picture quiz. Can you guess the play from the picture?

Here’s a little fun thing to try with your kids for Shakespeare Week. If you don’t know what Shakespeare week is, by the way, it’s a week in March in the UK, aimed at getting kindergarten age children into Shakespeare, and it’s totally fun.It’s all about dressing up in costumes and having a go at acting some of the plays out. They also have some great Shakespeare themed crafts for kids to do as well as local events across the UK.

You don’t have to be a kid to do it!

Check out our great selection of illustrated Shakespeare bookshere.
