I'm so excited - Lincoln has decided, within the last week or so, that he likes crayons. As in, he likes to color with them and not eat/throw/break them. I've been waiting for this day for a long time. I've been collecting coloring books and coloring sheets and activity books for months (years?) - and now I get to use them all!
One of my newest favorites is Bumper Wipe Clean Activities by Juliet David. This handy little book is a collection of mazes, hidden objects, letter and number writing practice, dot to dot, matching pairs and much much more.
The illustrations by Marie Allen are friendly, colorful and full of whimsy! Each bright page attracts a young reader's attention, yet the book is presented with simple enough instructions that an older toddler or preschooler can easily enjoy the activities. And the best part is - it's a dry-erase book, so the drawings can be erased and the book used over and over again!
One dry-erase pen is included with the book, but don't feel limited to just one color. Most good quality felt-tip pens and crayons can be used with no problem! The Bible stories presented start with the Old Testament and cover everything from Creation to Moses to Naaman to Jonah. New Testament stories included are the birth of Jesus, Jesus' parables and miracles, and Zacchaeus.
The 67 pages of activities contained in this little volume make it a great book to turn to when you need something to keep a little one entertained for awhile. I could see it as a great resource to use while traveling or maybe during church while a little one is learning how to sit through a service. Lincoln, at age two and a half, is a little young to understand most of the activities in this book, but the beauty of the pages being reusable is that he can grow into them!
We're definitely fans of Bumper Wipe Clean Activities at our house! What's your favorite resource for a child who has just learned the joy of crayons and markers? I think we're in for tons of arts and crafts fun in the coming weeks!
