If you’re anything like us, the holidays are now half over and finding activities to keep children interested (especially if you’re trying to work from home!) can be a challenge!
Bloomsbury recently kindly sent me a copy of their new publication The Arty Book, and it’s certainly come to my rescue this week as we’re back from holiday and trying to catch up with a few work related things!
The Arty Book
Whether you are a doodler or a drawer, a colouring expert or a painter, you will find plenty in this visually stunning and very innovative art book to extend your children’s artistic imagination.
As you open the book you get to spend time with ‘Arty’, your creative buddy, who on every page will give you a starting point for simple yet extraordinary art activities. You can add stripes and spots, lumps and bumps, tape, paint, pencil and so much more to the pages of this book, to make your own ‘Arty’ creations. The colour palette for the ‘Arty’ pages is bold black and red, which provides the perfect backdrop for children to add their own colourful designs.
We took the book out for a couple of days to keep our children busy during long car journeys, and they both loved completing some of the activities. Some pages, however, require paint and glue and collage materials – so you just have to be selective about what you choose if you are out and about!
The Arty Book is simply perfect for a rainy day, for enjoying alone or with friends and family, and will supply hours of creative adventure. The book has the added benefit of Including lots of amazing Arty stickers too!
Thank you bloomsbury for a wonderful book and for saving my sanity on a number of occasions!
