Keep Kids Entertained with DK’s Summer Fun Boutique

DK SUmmer I remember long summer days spent bothering my mother, letting her know how “bored” I was.  Now that I am a mother myself I can appreciate how hard it is to keep children occupied and entertained every waking minute.  

DK has a Summer Fun boutique featuring activity books which will at the very least help to minimize the “Mom/Dad, I’m bored!” statements with plenty of interesting facts, engaging projects and vibrant images for children of all ages.  Many of these are even perfect for summer road-trips for children who don’t suffer from motion sickness.

Keira checked out My First Doodle Fun! and My First Doodle On the Go!  Both books are aimed at children 0-5 years old.

9781465417633HBoys and girls can design their own meal, dress a snowman, create their own art show, and more in My First Doodle Fun. The wipe clean format leaves endless design possibilities so kids can use the book over and over, creating a new experience every time.

What time is it? It’s doodle time! My First Doodle books are fun-filled first drawing books that will inspire budding young artists.

Packed with activities that spark the imagination, these books are an enchanting collection of illustrated scenes for boys and girls to make their own. Made from sturdy board book material, My First Doodle books come with a wipe clean pen so children can practice their designs and then change them again and again. Perfect for traveling, rainy days, or quiet time, My First Doodle books will inspire creativity and keep kids busy.

The book features 26 pages of doodling fun that can be enjoyed over and over again thanks to wipe-clean pages and a dry-erase marker.  Genius!  Keira loves doodling all over the pages and being able to erase it all and start all over again.  She isn’t quite at the point of being able to actually follow the prompts but that sure doesn’t stop her from having fun!

9781465417626HIn My First Doodle on the Go, kids can fill in the spots on the dog, draw spiders in their natural habitat, design their own teepee, and more. And when they’re done, kids can wipe the page and start all over again, creating fresh, new designs every time.

This book is the same idea as Doodle Fun! only with mostly different prompts.  Like Doodle Fun! it also features plenty of space for children to let their imaginations and inner artist go wild.

This is a collection of books perfect for letting Toddlers express their creativity and develop artistic skills and a perfect addition to the boredom busters collection I’ve got going.
