Summer’s here, which for us means outings to beaches, parks, county fairs, and the many festivals and events that take place here in Minnesota!
But it also means time spent hanging out at home, hoping not to hear “I’m bored” from my kids, though it usually comes way too early in the season!
That’s why I’m glad to have a copy of The Kid’s Awesome Activity Book by Mike Lowery. This book is packed with activities galore, and they’re funny and even a bit wacky. (Just perfect for my more-often-than-not-wacky kids. 🙂
When I was in elementary school, I had activity books with puzzles, word finds, and some fun projects. I would spend hours doing these in the summertime (no computers and video games back then!). But looking through the The Kid’s Awesome Activity Book, it looks so fun to me as a parent – I so wish I had this as a kid!
Every page is creative and interesting. There are activities featuring aliens, monsters, bees, fish, jokes, comics, connect the dots, secret codes, and so much more…plus it has more than 400 stickers.
My kids were laughing so hard at the funny things they were coming up with as they filled the pages of the book.
Here’s the official summary:
The Kid’s Awesome Activity Book is a parent’s best friend, guaranteed to entertain your backseat travelers during those endless summer road trips. Readers can create their own comic strips, write a hit song for the hedgehog hoedown, decode pirate word scrambles, and help a little leprechaun find his pot of gold. All they need is a pencil and their imagination!
It’s 112 pages and ideal for ages 6-11 (grades 1-6).
The Kid’s Awesome Activity Book: Games! Puzzles! Mazes! And More! is available from amazon.com for $13.96. Get it now so your kids can enjoy it through the summer!
