With a new baby in the family there’s been quite a lot of juggling of late at home to try to make sure that the other kids are happy and occupied whilst Tube Stop Baby has been taking up my time and attention. My two kids have been reasonably understanding about this and they have learnt that there are times that they can have my full attention and other times when the might need to occupy themselves for a bit. As long as they have something to hold their attention they’ve been pretty good about this and so it’s been excellent timing that I’ve had loads of different activity books to review lately. The Secret Woodland Activity book was one of the first to arrive and it is just perfect for Little Miss C. She loves all sorts of cute woodland scenes and animals and this book has both in abundance.
I think what I liked most about The Secret Woodland Activity Book is that it’s more than just a collection of pages with activities for children on them. Instead it’s like being taken for a journey through a magical woodland and meeting lots of its wonderful inhabitants on the way. The artwork has a gorgeous Scandi-style to it that makes it super cute for children on all ages.
The book contains everything from pages to colour in, maths puzzles, word searches, prompts to come up with a character of your own and write a story about them, scenes to complete with stickers (the book comes with over 150 of them) and instructions to make various craft projects.
LMC has been enthralled with this activity book for hours, steadily working her way through most of the activities in it. At the start there is an invitation to draw a picture of yourself entering the woods, and with whatever you need to take with you for your adventure. LMC seems to have done so with gusto.
She’s also really enjoyed using the stickers to create pictures throughout the book.
She has also come up with an excellent character for a story. No prizes for guessing which series of books she’s currently working her way through at home!
It’s fair to say that The Secret Woodland Activity Book has been absolutely perfect for Little Miss C. With a recommended age range of 4 – 8 years old it worked perfectly for her as an eight year old. I’d think that children at the younger end of the range would need some adult help, but actually older children would still enjoy many of the activities included.
The Secret Woodland Activity Book by Mia Underwood was published in November 2018 by Button Books. It is priced at £9.99 is available to buy online here.
