Activity books are not boring!
If your only experience of activity books are the sticker books or maze books that you find in supermarkets then these books will really wow you!
Now there is nothing wrong with a cheap sticker book filled with super heroes or fairies (in fact my kids have loved these books), however the books I am recommending today do even MORE than keep the kids busy for a little while. These books will inspire your kids to draw, write and to to create, use their imaginations and learn (in a fun way)!
These books do come with a warning label (ok just a precaution from me) that some parent involvement may be required for younger kids. This is actually a huge bonus with side-by-side drawing such a great opportunity for learning, bonding and nurturing. I don't see this as a negative!
OK, so what makes these books so good?!
For younger kids:
Journals and Mindfulness
For Older kids:
Would you like to take a quick look inside some of these books? Here is a short video to show you three of the books we are working through!
Don't expect your kids will work through these books cover to cover in one sitting.
I have encouraged my kids to date their entries into these books so that they can pick them up and put them down again. My DD has been working on "712 Things to Draw" with Mr YKOT for several years and that's ok! It is a great way to reflect on how their drawing changes as they grow older and mature. My DS has just started "Make Buildings" with Mr YKOT. Shh don't tell anyone, but my nieces and nephews will be receiving some of these books for Christmas this year!
