Pipity have kindly sent me 3 of their new activity books to review.
This, as the title suggests consists of activities that are animal related, from making an elephant using your finger as a trunk
to tiny bugs, there are also pictures to colour and a birthday card to make.
The thing that makes pipity stand out from other activity books is that there are you tube videos available demonstrating how to make or play each activity, which I think is worth it’s weight in gold because I have often struggled with disappointed children watching on, to figure how a new idea is suppose to go together. These videos can be accessed through the pipity website www.pipity.com or by a you tube scan-able code printed in the books.
GAMES AND PUZZLES
This is exactly what is says full of various games and puzzles from spot-the-difference, a version of who’s who?
and even a child friendly Sudoku puzzle .For older children there is a code breaker game and a word search.
TRAVEL ACTIVITY BOOK
This has colouring, puzzles and things to make all of which could be taken on holiday for help keeping children amused while they are away from home.
The above books retail at £4.99 each which make them ideal stocking fillers, they would suit a wide variety of ages making them value for money even better pipity are offering readers of my blog a 15% discount until 20 December use the discount code xmas002 to access this from www.pipity.com alternatively they can be purchased from Amazon.
I would have found these books an invaluable asset when I was working as a registered child minder plus the you tube videos would have meant that the older children could have tried to make the items for themselves giving a sense of achievement and allowing me to focus on the younger children.
Disclosure:I was sent the books for the purpose of the review but all opinions are my own.
As always questions/comments are welcome.
