Summer Activity Books

When school is out of session and there are limited camp and daycare options, summer can be a challenging time for parents.  So far this summer, my daughter, Molly, has attended a myriad of fantastic camps. From a week long cooking camp and art camp at Sea Pines Montessori to an acting camp at Savannah Country Day School, she's having an action packed summer.  But most of the camps don't last all day and we come home at noon, or 2:00 pm, with not much to do.  There are only so many days you can go to the pool in this heat! And since we try very hard to limit TV (a losing battle sometimes, I fear), we are always on the look out for great activities.  Miss Nancy at The Storybook Shoppe recommended these vacation activity and creativity books. The Princess one has been a huge hit!  It's provided us with hours of activities. She has a wonderful selection of activity books for boys and girls (be sure to check out the Pirate one for your little Captain Hook!)

From stickers to fold out scenes, stencils to photo hunts, make your own crowns and games, this one is FULL of activities Molly has truly loved. Here's the happy customer busy at work.

Molly really enjoyed learning how to draw a princess... 

Matching games with beautiful shoes were also fun!

Once I showed her how to use a stencil, Molly loved that she could make castles, dragons, and princesses all by herself.

What fun we are having with this!

So if you are looking for something for your kids to do this summer while you are in between camp, the pool, or have run out of activities, I highly recommend picking up one of these activity books at The Storybook Shoppe!  The vacation one just might be what you need for that long car ride as an alternative to the DVD player or when you grow tired of "I spy!"
