Kids Activities Blog Wrote the Book!

Kids Activities Blog Book

If you have kids, I will just assume here that you follow Kids Activities Blog. They are sort of the ultimate resource for fun activities for kids, thus the name. So naturally you would guess that if they write a book, it’s gonna be good. They did, and it is.

You flip through the pages of the book and immediately see thing after thing you want to do with your kids. I mean, they seriously have an eye for the very best activities for kids, and they packaged them all up into one book so you don’t need to spend your whole summer flipping through the pages of the internet.

Besides, we all know what happens when you go searching for something fun to do with kids on the internet. You get stuck on Pinterest for hours pinning memes and gorgeous kitchens and expensive jewelry, and your kid gets all mad and mopey and then it’s dinner time and you haven’t done a thing with them and then they hate you.

This is the absolute perfect summer resource. In fact, I’m planning on working my way through the pages with my kids. We really don’t have that much planned for the summer, and I want to explore and play with my kids, so this book will definitely be worn out by the end of August.

We will be doing:

  • Tin Can Target
  • Toilet Paper Roll Spy Decoder
  • Rubber Band Splatter
  • Homemade Paint Recipe for Mask Making

Anyway. I was sent a free copy of this book to check out, but I knew it would be flawless before I got it. I hope I don’t sound too sales-y here, I just really love the book and I’m a huge fan of Kids Activities Blog. Plus you all know by now that I don’t go on about something if I’m not loving it.

I didn’t even let my kids decide what we would try first, because I spied the bubble printmaking project and wanted to break into the giant container of bubble solution I mixed up a week ago. This project is F. U. N. (That spells fun).

Essentially, you tape 6 straws together, dip them into bubble solution with coloring mixed in (we used a load of liquid watercolor for ours), and blow the bubbles onto white paper. Easy, huh? And fast and addictive.

If you are inspired to do this project with your kids, and then you get all caught up in it as I did, check out how I took it one step further and added the element of drawing to it.

    • Hi Ann! Thanks! I’m surprised they didn’t pop out a book earlier, come to think of it…:)

    • Hi Jessica- yes, food coloring works, too! You can experiment with lighter and more saturated colors depending on how much food coloring you use. I also am working on a brand new bubble printing art journal post that I’m posting this week!
