PRODUCT: Usborne - Summer Things to Make and Do (www.usborne.com)Usborne Summer Things

DESCRIPTION: A 32-page paperback book of summer-themed art and craft activities for young children to make and create, plus 2 pages of stickers. Size of book is 276mm x 216mm. Suitable for children aged 5 years upwards.

GOOD POINTS: If you're looking for something to keep your children entertained this summer, then look no further than Usborne's book of Summer Things to make and Do!

The book is most likely to appeal to young girls, and is packed full of art and craft activities that make great pastimes for long (and short) summer holidays....even if it's raining!

The book is split into 18 summer-themed activities, listed in a contents page at the front, spread over both single and double pages. These activities encompass plenty of drawing, painting, finger-printing, sticking, papier mache, cutting and colouring, and cover a wide variety of things to design and make, including, among other things, sparkly ice creams, seashore crabs, a kite bookmark, a splashy pool picture, and a fishing boat mobile!

The book includes lots of wonderful colour illustrations, with step-by-step instructions to guide your child through the activities in a simple and easy-to-follow way, and even includes a photo of the finished product. There is also a double page spread of colourful stickers included which children will love using to decorate their designs and belongings.

The activities are great for stimulating children's imaginations to create their own original pieces of art and craft, and there is something to suit all ages and abilities, whether completing on their own or under adult supervision.

In our opinion, this is a really fun and inspiring art and craft book for entertaining young children on holiday and rainy days, and also provides some great party activities...and all for a very reasonable price!

BAD POINTS: None that we can find!

PRICE: £4.99
