Have fun with these activity books and journals to engage creativity and critical thinking!
If you are looking for a fun activity book for your preschooler, then you have to check out Preschool Activity Book Trucks, Cars, and Airplanes: 80 Games to Learn Letters, Numbers, Colors, and Shapes. It is so colorful and engaging for young children, with vehicle-themed activities that help children practice early learning skills. Take it with you on a road trip this summer or pack it in your bag as you run errands – all you need is crayons to get started!
Fun Painting Projects for Kids: 60 Activities to Unleash Your Inner Artist is a must have on any homeschool or classroom shelf! My daughter loves to paint, but I’m often at a loss for creative projects to do with her. Now we just pull this book out to find a new painting project to love! Whether it’s shadow painting, painting on ice, or painting with water guns (!), you and your child are sure to find in this book ideas for hours of joyful creativity. Each project was carefully chosen to encourage creativity and teach painting techniques and skills, as well as introduce kids to famous artists and their works.
Another fun book to encourage creativity is Let’s Play Indoors!: Fun Crafts for Children. It is full of fun craft projects for kids, like making animals masks or snow globes. There are a lot of classic craft projects for kids, as well as ones I would have never thought of, like making a salt dough puzzle! I love that the instructions are so easy to follow, with illustrations to accompany every step. Perfect for a rainy day or when you need a boredom buster!
Little animal lovers will love the A Home for Every Creature Coloring Book! It is full of cute animal pictures to color, including illustrations for the sweet song of the same name. This coloring book (created by the same artist as the song!) is a fun way to keep little ones entertained, while imparting a gentle message about taking care of the earth for all of its creatures.
Unleash your child’s creativity with the wonderful new One Question a Day Journal for Kids: 365 Days All about Me. The daily prompts are fun and focus on topics and activities that kids care about. There are no dates, so kids can journal at their own pace and answer the questions in any order. They need only write a few lines a day, so it’s a great, pressure-free way for kids to get start journaling! My son loves his journal, and I love that he’s discovering and sharing more about himself every day.
Encourage your child’s imagination with the Kids’ Inventions Journal! This unique journal is a place for kids to log all of their brilliant ideas. But it is more than just another activity book. It is a wonderful way to empower your kids to see themselves as creative problem solvers, as they devise inventions that address challenges they see in the world. There is even space for them to think through what materials they will need and to sketch the final product. But what makes this invention journal truly special is the fact that it was made by a mom and her daughter. In other words, the Kids’ Invention Journal is literally a kid’s invention! Talk about a great way to inspire your kids!
Do you have a kid who hates to write? Then you won’t want to miss Creativity Journal for Kids: Fun Activities to Spark Imagination and Inspire Self-Expression. It’s the ultimate tool to get kids to think about writing and creating in new ways. My son’s jaw dropped when he saw the activities he was being invited to do – to tear up a page, rub spices on another, and poke holes in another. He kept looking at me as if to ask, Can I really do this?? This book is a great tool to spark kids’ creativity & encourage them to think outside the box. It is especially useful for kids that wouldn’t normally be inclined to use a journal. They will love using this one!
