New Workbooks and Activity Books for Summer 2020
The Magical Underwater Activity Book by Mia Undersood
These Button Books activity books are Pura Vida Mom’s kids’ FAVORITES. Read facts about the world of real and magical plants and animals under the sea. You’ll also get the chance to color, make crafts, solve puzzles, draw, sticker, and write. Learn about mermaids, pollution, sharks, and more. This is a fantastic option for your children ages 7+. Also try: Secret Woodland Activity Book.
Roman Adventure Activity Book illustrated by Jen Alliston
Mazes, word searches, puzzles, jokes, dot to dots, drawing, crafts, and sticker activities introduce children to life in ancient Rome. A fun educational activity book for ages 7 to 12!
Sunshine and Sprinkles Make Your Own Pop-Up Book by Ralph Cosentino
Color in the pages first. Then punch out the kitties provided and tape or glue them in the pages. My testers, Pura Vida Mom‘s kids, LOVED this activity book so much.
Peel & Discover: SPACE
Learn space facts about the planets, astronauts, asteroids, and constellations and use your stickers to fill in the illustrations. Also read: Peel & Discover: CARS! TRUCKS! TRAINS! AND MORE.
TinkerActive: Kindergarten Math Workbook
The Kindergarten workbook is meant for ages 5 – 6 but there’s a lot of text so I think it’s more appropriate for ages 6 – 7. Perforated pages, illustrations are in full color, and each chapter includes activities in tinkering, making, engineering projects, science, english, and math. It includes stickers and answers in the back. That being said, it was NOT a hit with Pura Vida Mom’s rising 1st grader AT ALL.
TinkerActive: Kindergarten Science Workbook
Pretty much the same as the above but with more science than math — this workbook can provide structure to your long summer days.
