I am sure many of us are enjoying the warm outdoors and are engaged doing lots of fun outdoor activities. The following DK books from the Summer Fun Boutique inspires us to continue being active during the holidays. Great Things To Do Outside is a wonderful inspiring book that has a collection of 365 awesome outdoor activities. There are instructions and photographs explaining each activity. My children recognized a few of the projects they have already done such as painting pots, rocks, planting, rolling down a hill and more.
They also found lots of activities they have bookmarked to do like creating their own personal cloud, finding a fossil, identifying animal tracks and more. They just made a bug house recently and are in the process of experimenting a caterpillar becoming a butterfly. The activities in this book encourages children to observe, explore, create and discover. You will not be hearing "what can I do?" if you own a copy of this book, as it will keep our children busy throughout the summer.
Multiplication Made Fun and Amazing Visual Math are resourceful books for our children to gain knowledge in a fun way and remember the things they learned at school. Learning the timetables at a young age makes lots of other math problems easier. Having this Multiplication Made Fun will encourage children to learn the multiplication table.
I like the Amazing Visual Math as it allows children to see how math works by guessing first, then opening up the flaps to find out the answers and learning about adding, subtracting, fractions, angles, and more.
Some fun facts from the book...
Did you now trapezoid comes from the Greek work "a little table"?
Did you know bees make honeycombs from wax hexagons?
Ultimate Factivity Collection books like this LEGO Legends of Chima are perfect to have for those quiet moments, as these books encourage our children to read, create, draw and learn. Since the subjects in these books are interesting to children it will encourage them to do the challenges such as finding facts in these books.
DK Canada's Summer Fun Boutique has these books and more, 30% off for a limited time.
