Activity books are fantastic to keep kids busy, but these take it to a whole new level! Truly stimulating for our bright little children!
Activity books are absolutely fantastic for keeping children occupied and the right ones will also stimulate their minds.
I’ve got 4 activity books that will help teach your children while they have lots of fun with their creativity. Organic learning at it’s best!
Cool Things To Do & Fun Things To Do
There are a few where the goal is to place the correct piece of a picture in a very busy image.
Did you know that spacial recognition is a part of the MENSA IQ Test? I feel like this is one of the many areas I’d have failed on! haha
Rainy Day Doodles & Rainy Day Drawings
My favorite thing about these books are the drawing prompts. With the beginning of a picture already done, children are directed to finish with creative directives.
For example, they have an airline window on a plane trip and are supposed to draw that they see outside the window.
These are the perfect activity to stimulate their imaginations and inspire conversation!
Another thing I’m loving in the activity books is the drawing grid. Children are directed to draw only on the vertical and horizontal lines of the grids to create their masterpieces.
As I child I didn’t draw on grids until I started doing cross stitch, so I love that little ones are learning to draw things on grids at such a young age!
Kindergarten, Ages 4-6
These books are marked agest 4 and up, however I can’t imagine the average 4 year old being able to do some of these from the start.
With your help though, I truly feel activities like these will help put them way ahead of the curb!
Personally speaking, I’m not sure I would have come up with such stimulating activities! These activity books are way above average!
It amazes me how different we teach little ones in comparison to twenty and thirty years ago.
Some things also sicken me, like that so many teenagers and young adults can’t spell to save their lives and common sense seems to be on the decline.
Perhaps more activity books such as these will help put those on the decline.
