Parenting Blogger Vicki Psarias Reads Activity Books with her kid

Is your little one a budding Dynamo? Or perhaps you have a pint-sized-scientist with a dream of building their own robot?

Whatever your kids’ passions in life, books are a brilliant way of helping them realise their ambitions while being both fun and educational.

Both my sons, Oliver and Xander are huge fan of activity books. Hours of fun are hard working through each book – page by page, task by task, adventure by adventure.

As a family we travel a lot. Just last weekend we travelled down to London for a weekend of adventures and later this summer we’re planning a summer holiday to Turks and Caicos. Activity books are a great way to keep the kids entertained on our travels – they’re essentially a parent’s best friend. The journey will fly by and there’ll be no more cries of ‘are we there yet?!”.

Just last weekend we travelled down to London for a weekend of adventures and later this summer we’re planning a holiday abroad in the next few weeks. Activity books are a great way to keep the kids entertained on our travels – they’re essentially a parent’s best friend. The journey will fly by and there’ll be no more cries of ‘are we there yet?!”.

We were recently sent an amazing bundle of 5 activity books to review by The Salariya Book Company and I’m excited to announce that I have the same haul to giveaway to one lucky Honest Mum reader worth £34.95! Details of how to enter at the end of the post.

This book is great way to helps kids get over their fear of the dark. This humorous take follows the anxious adventures of a boy at nighttime as he begins to see scary monsters everywhere he looks. Eek!

Luckily with the help of his trusty torch, he’s able to discover that its simply his imagination running wild and that the creatures are merely furniture and household pets.
