I love coloring and activity books. They make perfect gifts in an Easter Basket or as a stocking stuffer at Christmas. And, I love giving drawing or coloring books as part of a Birthday gift. But, they also make wonderful additions to traveling activities for kids on the go. Of course, I’m thinking about summer vacations.
Space is always a concern when I plan a road trip. Not only can I not fit everything we want in the car, who wants to lug 5 bags for each kid? I know I don’t!
Small! Everything has to be small! I can totally make room for an activity book (or 10), even if it means placing a few on the floor in the car. Though, using an organizer on the back of the seat is probably a better option.
Even if we don’t take these on the road with us, they’ll keep the kids plenty active over summer break. And with so many options, there’s no reason they couldn’t settle on at least one of these when they start feeling bored.
So, I found these gems as I was looking for activities to keep the kids busy this summer. I had no idea there were so many Anna Pomaska books to choose from or the variety of activities! But, I gathered the top rated books by Anna Pomaska on Amazon.
