Terry Denton’s Bumper Book of Holiday Stuff to do!

Penguin Group (Australia)

When he says, bumper … he really means it. This is 300 pages, yep 300, crammed with activities. Filled with Terry Denton’s (13-Storey Treehouse) trademark wit and distinctive style this has a plethora of varied activities, all to be complete within the pages of the book. Some are more structured, while others allow for much more imagination – from ‘Draw Expressions on the Audience’s Faces’, ‘find the 26 Ducklings’ to ‘Invent Backyard Sports’ this is brimming with variety. A perfect ‘dip in and out of’ book.

The Pirate Creativity Book

Andrea Pinnington
Walker Books

This is a high quality spiral bound creativity book brimming with colour and ideas. I love the extras that are included to help with the pirate themed activities. Fabulous stencils, and the obligatory stickers, are a sure fire hit. Pinnington has included a mixture of quick quizzes and puzzles with a range of stories, games and things to make – from pirate cookies to pirate hats.

Jolene

Jolene

Jolene enjoys writing, sharing and connecting with other like-minded women online – it also gives her the perfect excuse to ignore Mount-Washmore until it threatens to bury her family in an avalanche of Skylander T-shirts and Frozen Pyjama pants. (No one ever knows where the matching top is!) Likes: Reading, cooking, sketching, dancing (preferably with a Sav Blanc in one hand), social media, and sitting down on a toilet seat that one of her children hasn’t dripped, splashed or sprayed on. Dislikes: Writing pretentious crap about herself in online bio’s and refereeing arguments amongst her offspring.
